#Tbay lunch walkies
A co-worker and I have made a habit of walking to the Bay St. Area at lunch once a week. We find it really helps the creative process to disconnect from all the technology we work with every day - we are Systems Administrators.
We try to vary the walk and get perspectives on the neighborhoods and see what new developments are occurring. Thunder Bay is in a state of transition - its turning over a new leaf - but only by walking can you really see the subtle changes.
Eventually it will explode and will be very apparent.
Today's walk took us down Red River by the new Law School. It is possibly one of the most stunning buildings in the city. There's a mock up of the interior court house simulation on a billboard. I'm sure it could double as film set when not in use.
Down Algoma and over to Bay Street we went, eyeing up all the residents that have been spruced up, and sadly many that have not tried. If only I had some extra money to throw around and develop some of these run down buildings. But that's a rant for another day.
Some other sightings included a protest in front of a fairly prominent food place, a cheery fellow in Leafs attire busking outside the Hoito, a residential apartment undergoing some serious renovations and the backside of Hill Crest park.
