Next Week: CONTAINER (Glass, Cup, Bowl, Box, Baskets,...)
On Sunday after lunch with B. at Sophie's we went for a walk to Granville Island. It's a place we've walked around dozens of times. Yet on Sunday we discovered something new. For the first time we came across the houseboats. I'd seen them from the waterfront when on a harbor cruise way back in 2007. But this was the first time we stumbled onto the row of them via land.
It made me wonder how many other things I've missed. And it got me thinking of how to put new zest and enjoyment into familiar walks. Here are six things I thought of:
1. Walk a different way than you usually walk. That's how we came across these houseboats yesterday—by following hubby's suggestion to walk around the island instead of diagonally across to the market like we usually do. Whether your walk is a line or a loop, taking it in a different way than you usually do is bound to yield some new discoveries.

Back to you: What are some of your favorite walks and haunts? Why do you keep going back to them? Have you discovered something new in a familiar place? How did it happen?
Any of you who have read The Third Grace by Canadian author Deb Elkink will enjoy her interview on her local Alberta TV station. In the interview she talks about her journey to publication, her inspiration, and her characters.
