Almost my last walk
(port colborne, ontario)
Not a very nice day today, but I had to go to the bank. It is a cool 30 f. with drizzle on and off and gusty winds. There were lots of big puddles on the sidewalks. Because of the snow along the curbs the water had nowhere to go. If it freezes like it is supposed to do tonight it will make for very bad walking conditions.
Anyway, I was on the sidewalk walking past the supermarket parking lot. I was half way across the exit ramp when I saw this lady driving out of the lot. She slowed down like most do when someone is on the sidewalk but I noticed she was looking to the right instead of straight ahead. I decided to stop.
Good job I did because she just kept going. By the time she turned to face the front I was standing by her door only a few inches away. It really startled her. She rolled down her window and said sorry about ten times.......
The rest of the walk was uneventful, I walked down by the canal for about 15 minutes to look at the huge cargo ships that were docked there for the winter and then headed home.....
Danger lurks around every corner ! !
