Relocation Transportation Transformation Exploration – Part 2

All photos taken on August 24, 2022. …now, where was I? Oh, yeah, bike riding through the Edmonton River Valley. In Part 1, we left our intrepid duo (always wanted to say that) at the James MacDonald Bridge roughly in the center of Edmonton. At our rest stop, we discussed our options and decided toContinue reading “Relocation Transportation Transformation Exploration – Part 2”

Relocation Transportation Transformation Exploration – Part 1

All photos taken on August 24, 2022. Since our first attempt of transporting our folding E-bikes in the back of our Prius V for a river valley ride on July 29, 2022, we have been trying to get up the nerve to do it all again.

After 18 years in business on Whyte Avenue, our favourite restaurant, Langano Skies (Ethiopian cuisine) closed their doors to guests on June 19/22. To say this was our favourite Edmonton restaurant, is an understatement. Dining hereContinue reading “End of an Era”

Bridging the Divide

All photos taken on February 28, 2022. Our lethargy and our lack of enthusiasm for walking a long distance on icy sidewalks took us into Edmonton for a short walk today. Parking at the Kinsmen Sports Centre we walked North across the new Walterdale Bridge on the East side and then back South on theContinue reading “Bridging the Divide”

What a Howl!

All photos taken on February 28, 2022. Boredom, malaise, lethargy, whatever you opt to call it, it is a terrible thing. As winter dragged on, Covid sapped a lot of our enthusiasm and recent world events have just about finished us. It was one of those “why bother days” when I suggested we go onContinue reading “What a Howl!”
