Midsummer Weekend.

Seven Power Walkers enjoyed the 15 kilometre Midsummer Night race on Saturday night.  The course of this race is out the Leslie Street Spit (Tommy Thompson Park) and back.  This year the walkers started at six which meant we were able to be back before dark.  A pleasant breeze kept the mosquitoes away.  This race is one of my favourites – the long-sleeved shirts always end up becoming  the ones I “go to? when the weather starts turning  and the scenery walking back toward the city at sunset is spectacular.

Congratulations to Ann-Louise on her first race!  And to our not-quite members – Alex and friends – who completed 15 kilometres for the first time.  What’s great about being a Power Walker is that there were at least as many people who came out to cheer our start and to join us for dinner after the race as there were racers.  We ended up on a patio by the water, enjoying a fabulous Saturday night.
Then, on Sunday afternoon, we came together again at Rorie’s pool.  More than a dozen of us shared home-made goodies (love those peanut butter and jam cookies) and floated on noodles while chatting and laughing.  When my fingers looked like prunes, it seemed like time to get out.  Was I glad I did!  Laurel’s beautiful cupcakes were waiting on the table. 
A brief discussion organizing the garage sale in September wrapped up proceedings.
