Of course after a breakfast of fried bread I needed to do some serious walking. I wanted to find the library, the mall, and maybe the sushi place (even though it doesn't open until 5:00 pm). The sidewalks around here are a little hard to come by. Not the fault of Labrador City. They did make some. They've just had an incredibly harsh winter and there are huge icy mountains every twenty feet or so. Luckily, although the drivers go pretty fast, they do slow down when they pass you on the road. Still, it was more than a little sloppy out there. It rained last night and snowed part of the morning, but by 11:00 it was grey but not too cold.
Then I was off again to see what else I could find.
Funny story, I passed a playground zone which had a speed reader to let the cars know how fast they were going. If they were going over 40 km/h the sign went red. When I walked by it read my speed too. 5 km/h. I don't think I'll be getting a ticket. I was well within the law. I thanked the sign for letting me know my current speed. I wonder what Sonic clocks in at?
Now, my muddy and soggy pants are washed and hanging to dry and I've reverted to pajamas for the time being. I may yet take a cab over to Sushi Lab or, I might just grab something a little closer and curl up with some anime or do some writing. I'm kind of worn out. I was walking for three hours while exploring this amazing place. It was really fun. I'm kind of sad I'm leaving tomorrow. Though I'm sure Churchill will be just as awesome!
On a total side note - Calgary Reads is hosting Reading Town and my RIO kids' writing club is a part of it, under the umbrella of the Alexandra Writers' Centre Society, of course. You can read the first story of the seven which will be tweeted out each day of the week long celebration. Just click the link here:
