So, it was a balmy -10C to -8C on Sunday with very little wind. You could tell we were heading back toward spring, albeit slowly, by the warmth given off from the sun.
Days like this make winter in Manitoba very bearable.
My wife and I decided to take the camera for a walk in one of our favorite places in the city of Winnipeg, the Exchange District.
We both enjoy the architecture of the buildings in what used to be a bustling part of Winnipeg’s commerce history. The little details built into the structures must have stories to tell.
Like the half moons that adorn the top of one bldg and the metal stars built into the walls of another.
There are still a few signs of life with shops occupying some buildings, restaurants, art shops and eccentric clothing.
One of the reasons we’re in this area more is of course because our son is in the new RRC campus in the Exchange taking Culinary. Our hope is that in time, there will be more and more services available in the area making it more attractive as a “go to” place to live.
We’ve seen other cities, such as, St Paul Minnesota that have done a nice job of refurbishing the older bldgs, making them a great place to walk around and take in the atmosphere.
You can see some pictures of the area here.
Took a couple of pictures of the new stadium for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers football club.
I’m really looking forward to getting in there and shooting for Goldenwest Broadcasting’s Pembina Valley Online.
I’ve been doing that for the last two years and learning a bunch from the other pros on the sidelines. The crew there is so talented and work so quickly. I grab whatever insights I can when we have a few moments between plays or after the game when they’re posting.
Mostly, I try to stay out of their way ;-).
Well, that’s it for now. TTYL.
