Hiking Weekend #1

Friday evening turned out to be a fun night out – after my nap. Colleen had invited me to join the Summer kick-off gathering for HOLA Saint John which led to enjoying some tasty beer, great company, and fun dancing!

Saturday I was up early and ran errands and got groceries. I spent the afternoon in the lobby of the Imperial helping sell season subscriptions to SJTC’s 2008-2009 season. Then, it was home to unpack my gorceries, change, and grab a quick bite to eat with Keith before heading back to the Imperial to finally get a chance to watch “To Kill A Mockingbird.” I thought that Graham made some interesting directorial choices and I thought the cast did a great job. Kudos to everyone involved – you could tell that a lot of hard work was put into it!

After the show, I caught up with Beth & Colin over a couple of glasses of wine at Happinez. It was so nice to see them!! I didn’t want to go home, but I had early morning plans to go hiking.

I picked up Sabine and we headed out to Fundy Trail to hike the Hearst Lodge loop. It’s considered a challenging trail due to lots of climbing over all sorts fo tree roots and rocks, before returning by the giant hill of a gravel road. It didn’t take us as long as we thought it would, but it turned out to be a good length for our first hike of the season. I’m already plotting my next hike…. :-)
