It’s summer and time for wandering!
— Kellie Elmore
I took this saying to heart this summer and traveled across Canada from coast to coast for a series of federal consultations, taking extra days here and there to enjoy some relaxing moments. I am sharing pictures with you of my forays into the St-John’s Newfoundland area and Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, two locations I have rarely visited and took the time to explore.
Summer was glorious everywhere I went, and I regret not taking pictures of the familiar cities of Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, Moncton, and Halifax while hopping from location to location. I look forward to sharing more adventures with you in the fall!
One of Canada’s great treasures! The wind was blowing strong when I visited Cape Spear. Cape Spear is located on the Avalon Peninsula and is the easternmost point in Canada. The open ocean along the coast and the harbour view in St-John’s were also spectacular. My visit coincided with the George Street festival where the crowd celebrated into the night to the music of Our Lady Peace.
In Yellowknife, I facilitated a roundtable that brought together participants from across the North, many from the First Nations, Metis, Inuvialuit, Gwich’in and Dene nations. A powerful gathering.
I managed to carve out a beautiful week of relaxation in southern Ontario. First, at a spiritual retreat in Niagara led by coach Maureen Landry, and then on the shores of Lake Huron where the water is cool and turquoise. I came back rested and with renewed energy for my work as a facilitator, coach, and artist.
I hope you have been able to find rest and renewal in these last few weeks and that you continue to feel inspired by the beauty of this season!
