Tourists at Home

When we go away, I like to explore, to check out some of the cool things to see (and to eat). There are plenty of options at home, too, but I don’t pay as much attention. Maybe it’s because I can always do it another day. When you’re visiting somewhere, you’re on limited time.

I’m happy to have a son young enough to still like day trips with Mom, so each week of summer we plan an adventure. I hope it stops raining, or this week’s might be kind of soggy.

We’ve picked strawberries, visited a couple of favourite parks… I want to find something new to do near home and I may have found it. I hear there’s an Italian market that sells gelato….

What do you like to do near home for a mini-vacation?

    Anne and Mom are here – came for my show opening last night. 🙂 So, we will hit the high points – brand new Costco, Indigo, Bulk Barn, movie theatre, old City market … Ha! Ha!
    On my own I love to walk uptown (4 blocks from my house) and cruise galleries, bookstores, the library, the Market.
    Happy Summer, Janet.

      Sheila, I’d love to get to the City market some day. Sounds fun. Sadly, I haven’t yet been to our own City market. Hmmm. Maybe I should add this to our summer activity list! I don’t do early Saturday mornings, though, and that’s prime market time here.

      It’s great you have such refreshing places to walk so near home! I hope the show goes really well.
