I was one of 1200 people sharing a lovely prairie-inspired meal last evening on the Esplanade Riel. GDC Manitoba sponsored two of the 150 tables that made up the full length of Winnipeg’s Table for 1200. What a perfectly lovely way to spend a summer evening… visiting with other members of GDC Manitoba and having a few hours to soak in the best of Winnipeg.
Last night (May 22), GDC Manitoba’s 18th installment of PechaKucha Winnipeg took place at the Park Theatre. The speakers proved to be an eclectic mix of thought-provoking and inspiring PechaKucha goodness, and I can’t wait for Vol. 19 so I can get another taste!
My sister Elaine and I went for a lovely long walk down The Forks river trail. Next time I plan to go back with skates, but for this time, it was nice to walk. We didn’t make it down the Assiniboine River leg, but we did do most of the Red River leg, stopping along the way to check out the warming huts. It was so sunny and beautiful out today — a little windy at times, but nothing we couldn’t deal with. I’m so thankful to have this yearly skating and walking path created in our city.
