On today’s most excellent walk with Zeke, every single “Bonjour” was returned in kind! That is a rare thing indeed (unfortunately) and one that I took as a good omen.
Of course, walking with this handsome dude, I do often get stopped and he gets gushed over so that truly helps to get things off on the right track.
Today I decided to take a different route. Well, I always vary how I get to my destination but this time I decided to go somewhere else.
I’ve been living in this neighbourhood for five years now and I have a general gist of the surroundings. That said, one turn off one street lead to another and another until I was, well, lost! Not so lost as to fret that I’ll never find my way back home but enough to wonder how the hell I had ended up where I did! I recognised the names of some of the streets but was puzzled that I was not where I thought I was!
How often do we know one end of a road/street/boulevard but never really take the opportunity to go all the way to the other end of it? It’s when I ended up on a familiar street but totally unfamiliar surroundings that I pondered this. I know the streets of Boucherville are all twisty and often U-shaped but this was ridiculous! I felt like I was in a totally different town!
Oh my! There is a wooded area over there! No way? Well, I’ll be damned…
An hour and a half later, Zeke and I made our way back home with stomachs growling (well, I dunno about Zeke’s but mine sure was!)
I will definitely be taking another new road to it’s end to see where it takes me.
Have a wonderfully adventurous day, all!
