This last weekend felt like the real first weekend of summer. We hadn’t had three days of sun in a row since April.
We took advantage by doing a lot of walking.
Halifax Regional Municipality has opened a few new trail systems around the city. They are highly accessible and great for cyclists, joggers, and Rollerbladers. It’s such a great idea and I’m glad our city is recognizing the need for recreational paths. Unfortunately, we were a little disappointed with the one we checked out on the weekend.
Due to the location in a major industrial area, the trail itself is very flat and very straight. It’s too dangerous to let dogs off-leash and the immediate sides of the path offer very little for dogs to sniff. While I am glad we checked it out, I don’t think we’ll be back to this one.
We’ll stick to parks with a view.
At least the Canada Day fireworks over the harbour more than made up for the loss.
