This week in boredom prevention.
Although it has been a busy post-vaction week and boredom hasn't been an issue, after lots of homework, birthday celebrations and a little failure at music trivia, it was finally sunday-funday. Walking out into the sunshine with some beautiful double digit weather I heard Short Hills Provincial Park calling my name. I packed up my little (actually not little at all), let me rephrase that, my 83 pound truck of a golden retriever, cracked the sunroof and headed for the Hills, the Short Hills.
Despite the four pounds of mud stuck to each of my feet and caked to my hair, it was an absolutely beautiful day. Short Hills Provincial Park, located in the West end of St. Catharines, never disappoints. Filled with short, steep hills and many routes to choose from the park is sure to satisfy your appetite for a Sunday funday hike, or any other day for that matter. After spending my Saturday night in a "lounge" in downtown Toronto (not my ideal setting) the Short Hills fresh air, creeks, trees and meadows were a beautiful sight for sore eyes.
To the left is my Vince man. He has three degrees under his belt and he's only one month shy of a year old. Despite his level of education, he insists on dragging me through knee-deep mud, tricking me into falling into creeks, ensuring that he gets as much mud on himself, my car and my face as possible, but most of all just making my day that much more enjoyable.
For those of you looking for a little something to do on a Sunday funday, I suggest hiking. If the exercise and fresh air don't have you convinced, check out these top ten health benefits of hiking.
So, put away your Sorels, pull out your hiking shoes and get outside! Don't let the lost hour get you down, Happy Spring.
