Edmonton in a Millisecond


We flew to Edmonton after work one night and by the next night just pre the midnight hour, we were back home in Regina. In the midst of all that travelling, we shopped and dined and saw the sights - well the sights of Whyte Avenue - and just generally had a good time.

Wednesday night we arrived relatively early, 9:00 p.m. and the avenue was crowded with people milling outside local bars, roaming down the sidewalk, couples walking hand in hand, bikers cruising the street. It was an assortment of young and old. It was amazing and worth a trip down the avenue just to people watch. The next day we were able to steal a few hours shopping. And steal it was as the clock ticked and the airport pickup time loomed.

For a non-shopper I was hooked and did I mention, time was limited. Funky shops were everywhere from the designer fashion chains such as Lulu Lemon to unique independents selling clothes I only wish I could afford. There was a fun shop and a pet shop that specialized mainly in designer dog wear. With any luck one notable Irish Terrier will be featured when I update the website. Check back at the end of the week
for Rourke with an attitude wearing his new doggles.

Trips don't always have to be long. They may be fun but they're always an adventure!

Lucky you! It must be cool to drop and go - I don't know if that will ever come to my path, but in the meantime - Go Girl Go!
