The beautiful sunny weather continued in Edmonton this week, with one thunderous exception. Here is how I spent the second week of The Local Good’s #31DaysofYEG event.
Find some plants that are native to our river valley and consult local plant expert Robert Rogers on its many potential uses.
We went to the Street Performer’s Festival at noon on the hottest day of the summer so far, so I did really enjoy standing by the fountain at City Hall.
Take a photo of your favourite Edmonton landmark or public art — bonus points for a selfie with it!
I don’t take many selfies but Talus Mound is reflective so technically this photo is a selfie. That’s me reflected in the largest ball.
Share a picture of our night-time sky — we often have beautiful sunsets and clear starry nights. Bonus points if you visit the TWOS observatory or the U of A observatory to learn more about the stars and constellations we are looking at.
The skies were so hazy from the wildfires, including the one in Jasper, the night sky show wasn’t as fantastic as it sometimes is.
I ended up contributing a lot to the #31DaysofYEG Twitter Feed on July 12th. As Tom and I sat on the front porch in the evening a thunderstorm blew in. It temporarily flooded the intersection and destroyed the wasp nest on the bike.
Have a meal at one of the restaurants featured at the Taste of Edmonton festival.
Yikes, Twitter rotated my photo. That looks really strange.
I love this photo take on one of the Fort Edmonton street cars. The hot button political issues were a little different in Edmonton’s past.
Here is The Local Good’s Recap of Week 2. It’s great to read how everyone is celebrating Edmonton.
