Autumn in My Neighbourhood

Since I suffered a bad fall last spring, I have been trying to gradually get back to my former walking strength. I’m not there yet, but I’m making good progress. I am up to about two miles (3.2 km) now before I need a rest.

This week my walks took me to Borden Park in Edmonton and around my neighbourhood of Parkdale.  We have had some snow which melted this week, but we are due for some more later today. Here are some images that caught my eye. The first one is of what is probably the world’s most splendid public washrooms building.

      1. When I lived in the UK I used to go for bike rides or walk the dog in a place called Duke’s Drive: a woodland area close to home. It too was beautiful and often quiet.
        These days, one would be somewhat foolhardy to go for similar walks in such a place over here. Asking for trouble.

          1. Consider that a true blessing!
            I have no probs walking around my suburb – I walk/jog many times.
            But solo in a park? Doubt I would do that, even with the dogs at hand.

  1. We also had snow in Minnesota before a proper fall this year, but your public sculptures are WAY better than ours. 🙂 Great photos!
