Hi everyone, what a beautiful day we had in Alberta,
We had a plus 4 degrees day, unheard of in our parts,
plus it was a holiday here called Family Day, and there were people out taking in this beautiful day.
I had originally planned to go to the Art Gallery, but it was so nice we decided to stay outside.
I think the first photo is just beautiful, the cross country skiers were skiing down there,
unfortunately I did not get any with my little point and shoot camera, but that is okay.
I stumbled upon this statue by accident,
I have lived in the city for approximately twenty years and had never seen this statue.
So this was my version of Art outside.
It amazes me the details of the statues, they always have made me stop in my tracks!
As I did with this second statue,
I love the eyes and the eyebrows on this one,
My sister in law said, the eyebrows, what,
I said well yes, see how the fine lines for all the individual hairs,
and she just laughed at me, she is more of a sport fanatic,
And sometimes takes me on these outings just to humor me.
I know I am very lucky,
The two statues were just behind where we were sitting on the bench.
There were all kinds of people out walking and running,
people holding hands, laughing, taking pictures, walking their dogs,
which I have to say were some of the cutest I have seen in a while.
A little pug that made me think of Char with hers.
This one was dressed up in a little ruffled skirt,
I thought it was so cute, I forgot to take a picture.
As we walked we came to these stairs,
and now I have a new goal,
to be able to get up and down them 5 times by the end of summer.
I know it does not look like much, but it is a mountain to some people.
So today I found my mountain....
This is us from the top looking down. this only shows about a quarter of the way.
So the fresh air was wonderful, the sun was some much needed vitamin D,
And the best of all is knowing that there will be another week of this lovely weather.
Have a great day.
