>Exploring Assiniboine Park (a little bit)


Tonight after dinner…I talked my mum into going to Assiniboine Park… we ended up at the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden.. it was a kind of funny thing… it was just after 6pm…and the sign said the park was ‘closed’ from 6pm to 7am.. and there was a bit FENCE with spikes… so although mum and I walked to some benches… she really didnt’ want to get ‘locked’ in side the park for the night… (but I did manage to take a few photos…)
You can see the big ‘gate’ in the distance….
Here’s mum and I with the “school girl” statue… apparently she didn’t get the memo to look at the camera like we did!!
She was very intent at looking at the gate…so we hustled out of ‘gated’ portion of the park!
I stopped to take a photo of the ‘trumpet statue’….
It was here we found a ‘safe’ bench to sit on…. All the benches were in memory of someone… it kind of reminded me of ‘notting hill’ and the english ‘secret’ gardens… benches are a fun thing to sit on…. (I sat on the Genevieve Cody bench… while mum sat on the George Reid bench)

It got a little silly.. when I suggested we take photos of each other on our ‘benches’…. I’m not sure why… the wind picked up.. and here’s the shot mum took… which is kind of awesome in itself….as she doesn’t like taking photos… and well my camera I think scares her…

Here’s mum on my her bench… we were laughing at this point… because I took a photo of her feet… you see we have an AWESOME cousin.. that likes to take photos of her feet in different places…(it’s quite a cool concept..) so I took the photo of our feet… and I kept saying to her “raise them a little higher…yes that’s it… now flex… ok hold them…” just to see how ‘long’ she’d hold her feet in the air… well yes it was funny at the time..but well maybe not so funny as I type it!  Anyways… that’s why in the photo below mum is laughing!!
And one more photo of MY foot.. and my laughing mum……..
Thanks for flying out Mum… you know a week really isn’t long enough.. maybe I should have listened and let you come for the 10-12days you wanted to come for.. next time we’ll know!!  I luv you.. and I’m so glad you got to see my place, and where I work.. and some of the sites of Winnipeg!!
Safe travels tomorrow… luv ya, Sarah
