Day 109: Playing at Fighting


Day 109: Playing at Fighting, originally uploaded by susanvg.

We walked up on the mountain from the eastern side. This was my first encouter with the group that meets on Sundays to stage mock medieval battles, equipped with plastic weapons. If only all battles took place this way! I marvel at how everyone finds a place for themselves on Mount Royal. As we walked we saw many joggers and cyclists, challenging their hearts as they climbed up the incline. Others were out walking with dogs of all sizes and shapes.

In one spot, young men had tied loose ropes between trees and were practising walking on the loose rope. As we walked we could hear the tamtam drums. Each Sunday people gather and drum together, dance and just enjoy the sunshine.

Walking was wonderful!

  1. Interesting scene! I bet it is nice to see more people (and plants) come out of winter's hibernation!
