Take me out to the ball game. Buy me some peanuts and Crackerjacks … or fresh-squeezed lemonade and chocolate-covered bananas.
A Winnipeg Goldeyes baseball game is just one way to enjoy a warm summer evening. The Goldeyes offer an affordable, family-friendly event, complete with fireworks and enthusiastic ushers, mascots and Dancin’ Gabe to keep the crowd jumping. A big bouquet to Gabe — the most passionate fan of Winnipeg I’ve had the pleasure to know. I suggest you bring a glove to the game to catch the variety of flying objects, ranging from errant baseballs to shirts, ice cream bars and hot dogs.

I recently tried a new type of yoga workout — on water!
Shakti SUP offers paddleboard yoga at the Adrenaline Adventures recreation complex on the west Perimeter. I’m not experienced in yoga but I am comfortable on the water, so I presumed I had an advantage as we paddled out onto the lake.
The stretches themselves were a great workout but balancing on the paddleboard was the real exercise. If you’re ready to take on a new yoga format, you’ll need to make reservations in advance, as these classes fill up fast.
Many thanks Ashley – it was a blast!

Readers are asking how I started writing for The Metro, so here’s the scoop: I have a full-time paying job and a full-time family job. I’m also a very busy volunteer in a variety of areas.
I’m not a professional writer but I love my community and this city, and I appreciate the opportunity to share my thoughts. I enjoy new experiences, and I’ll keep writing about them if I think others will enjoy hearing about them.
