BEAUTY IN YOUR BACKYARD
But what to do when you're 'stuck' in the city on a weekend with temperatures soaring and the summer sunshine is begging you to come out and play? With no lake to swim in and no beach to sunbathe on, what is a prairie yogi to do?
Look to the beauty of your backyard for new adventures!
Just because we love the lake, doesn't mean there aren't plenty of things to do to enjoy the sun shine inside the perimeter, you've just got to be creative. Sometimes it's hard to appreciate the simple things right in front of us when we think that the only way to enjoy the weekend is to get away.
See the city from a different angle on kayak or canoe along the Assiniboine river. Go for a walk, without agenda, through your neighbourhood. Stop for an ice-cold beverage. Play catch in the local park. Go sit next to the fountains at the Legislative Buildings or at one of the many of our over-looked (but beautiful) downtown parks.
What are some of your favourite ways to spend summer weekends in the city?
