With last weekend being PolarFest here in Peterborough and the surrounding Kawartha area there was a great deal of events to enjoy, including the Polar Plunge from Sunday. In Lakefield there still are some ice sculptures remaining from the festivities, luckily it doesn’t look like it’s warming up any time soon, so they may be there for a while.
I really liked these two, especially the centaur. That’s just awesome.
Today I checked out the ice sculptures in Lakefield.
So I’ve started canvassing the neighborhood for a place that would hang those prints, but nothing. I didn’t really realize how the public art world worked, having wall space is pretty hard to come by! Nada’s Cafe and Haasleton’s both had an artist booked for a year, and Dreams of Beans is under construction.
Damn. These definitely aren’t gallery worthy, so who knows! I’ll keep trying!
So instead I went to the Lakefield Market to try honey.
Today I went to the Lakefield Market and tried different types of honey.
"Not the bees! Ahhhh! My eyes, they’re all over my eyes!"
I was down visiting a friend, was a bit early, so took a morning stroll on Queen St. in his neck of the woods. I’ve always enjoyed T.O., and today’s walk was a great way to soak in a bit of the big-city life before the day started.
Where I walked was more of the art district, it was gallery after gallery. This one caught my eye, so I stepped inside…
Today I enjoyed a photography exhibit on Queen Street.
