One Of Many Weekends To Come
Still in Chinatown, Calgary. This past weekend was the first of many weekends that are to be bestowed upon me this spring/summer.
Luckily, one of the benefits to living in Chinatown is the super close access to the Calgary River Walk. Dear Calgary, jolly good show on developing a pedestrian/bike/run/walk friendly path with pinache, for the fine citizens of your ambitious city. Sincerely, Shelli. I applaud you. I literally hop one block to the River Walk + engage in my morning run. Oh, but look!
This controversial pedestrian bridge was designed by Spanish architect, Santiago Calatrava. Apparently, the city was in an uproar because the construction + design of the bridge cost an estimate of $22 million green backs.
Well, huzzah, Calgary!!! I’ve been a little down on this wild rose of a city in my posts from last year, but in my humble opinion, this bridge gives a lot of oomph, street cred + grounds for peeps to take this city seriously as an up + coming new center for design – c’mon, Calgary, you’re rolling with the big dogs now!!!!!!
After digging out what was needed, Jeff asked me, “Have I ever taken you to Exshaw Beach?”. NO!!!! NEVER!!! I’ve been to Exshaw how many time laboring over the shipping container – but of course, NO I’ve never been to the beach!!! A lightbulb came on – I went beserk! “Oh, I get it!!! You married me because because I’m a minority!!! I’m small + strong + all I do is work every weekend + never complain!!! You knew you would never have to take me anywhere fun on weekends, + you’d never hear an utter of dissatisfaction!!!” I screeched. So, Exshaw Beach we went.
Beautiful! There’s Jeff waving from his relaxing bench.
Well friends, this post ended up being longer in content than I expected, so stay tuned to your screen for more upcoming weekend antics from yours truly!!! Woot woot!!!!
