This morning I decided I didn’t need the GPS to help me get to Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park.
I was wrong.
I started driving on highway 16 east and honestly I have no idea why I thought I was driving in the right direction. Anyway, I realized I was going the wrong direction and pulled over to turn-on my GPS.
38th Annual Terry Fox Run
My first stop was Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park, for the 38th annual Terry Fox Run! It was honestly so amazing to see just how many people came together for this event!
Mayor Lyn Hall spoke a few words before the run began!
Entire families showed up, even with their four legged members (doggos!) The run was a 5KM route from Lheidli T’enneh to Cottonwood Island Park and back!
Once the run was over everyone met at the start of the run for some drinks from David’s Tea, hot dogs and burgers!
My next stop was Fibre Fest! This was a really cool event to visit even though I don’t knit. I’ve always been curious about knitting but I’ve never thought I would have the patience for it.
There was SO much beautiful yarn! Honestly, this was a yarn lovers nirvana!
I met some really nice ladies and gentlemen who own some of the businesses that came out to the Fest and they were all so sweet and kind about all the questions I had for them!
There was also a raffle going on where you could win some yarn, or beautifuly knit products!
Last, it was Scrabble Sunday at Cafe Voltaire!! Big Disclaimer—I’ve never played Scrabble in my life.
I’ve always been curious about it because I LOVE BOARD GAMES, but I’d just never gotten around to it.
I walked into Café Voltaire for the second time in my life and looked around, I asked the barista nicely as to where I could find the Scrabble players and she directed me across the café to a man and a woman at a table.
I approached and the man looked up at me and said “Hey, you’re the new Fun seeker!” I giggled and corrected him,“chaser! Haha.”
His name is John Aitken and he is a former competitive Scrabble player.
We began to talk and before I knew it he had me sitting at the table with them, teaching me the game of Scrabble.
I must admit, sitting with a Professional Scrabble player was intimidating but who better to learn from than the best, right?
I actually managed to walk away with my very own Scrabble board, which I am very excited to try out!
John was a very interesting and fun person to chat with, and I must admit that this was probably the best part of my day.
Speaking with someone who has a lot of knowledge, or wisdom of any sort is super interesting to me. I could sit and have conversations with people like this for hours.
Although I’ve had a case of the sniffles all weekend and I was ill prepared for the weather on Saturday…overall it was another fun weekend in Prince George!
Alright, until next weekend friends!
