Square to Square

This past weekend was a busy one, with lots going on in Waterloo Region. The highlight for me was Sunday’s square2square event, during which much of King Street was closed to motor vehicles between Kitchener’s Civic Square (in front of City Hall) and Waterloo’s Public Square. My two youngest sons and I bicycled from one square to the other, and the boys enjoyed the thrill of the (mostly) open road.

There was a lot to do between, and at, the two end points. My favourite discovery, though, was the remote-controlled model boats cruising the water in Kitchener’s Civic Square, courtesy of  Golden Triangle Marine Modellers (no website, alas). One of the modellers, Paul, was kind enough to let both my boys pilot his tugboat for a while, and both did so without crashing into other boats or the concrete sides of the pool.

The next square2square event is Sunday, August 14, and we’re all looking forward to it at our house. Thanks, and congratulations, to the cities of Waterloo and Kitchener for organizing these events this summer.
