Confessions of a Wimp

28 January 2016 – No two ways about it, this week the Tuesday Walking Society wimped out.

Falling temperatures, said the weather forecast, with rising wind and likelihood of rain. We consulted by phone early in the morning, and gave each other permission to cancel.

Later in the day, embarrassed by the lack of rain, I felt I had to get out there and do something. Even a very small something.

So I walked a westward loop that took me past our City Hall.

A reminder that, no matter how dull the day, somewhere there is colour, energy, and laughter.

  1. Can’t recall Tuesday, Wednesday was nice. Good for you! I want one of those skate/walker things! (Can’t skate!)

  2. There’s certainly no doubt where City Hall is located!

  3. Lovely color on a grey day
