I decided to tackle the 3km path from St. Anne’s Rd to St. Mary’s Rd yesterday. Of course, there is the .7 km to get to the path and there is the return trip too.
I didn’t end up going all the way to St. Mary’s Rd though. It was a nice enough path, but it was just an asphalt path through grassy areas – nothing very exciting.
When I got to Dakota Street, I decided to turn off and take a different route back home. I followed Dakota until I got to John Forsyth Rd since I figured it would be heading back to St. Annes Rd.
As I am walking along I am amazed at the huge green-space beside the schools I saw. There is enough green-space to have football field, soccer field, baseball field and huge playgrounds as well as just large grass open areas. I past 2 different schools and both had all this grass.
John Forsyth Rd is a nice residential area and I was enjoying looking at the homes as I was walking. The street had a lot of turns in it, so I was never sure which way I was going, but felt I was still heading for St. Anne’s Rd. Suddenly I came to a dead end with construction going on as new home were being built right where the road should be. Most of the roads going off this street were little bays or just turnarounds to I had to backtrack my steps for a few blocks before I came to a through street.
The sign for this street was Aldgate – but I thought Aldgate went the same way as John Forsyth and it comes out on St. Anne’s Rd very close to my apartment. The street I was on, was not John Forsyth as it had changed to Ravensden Dr at Aldgate. Guess I’ll have to start looking at street signs when I go for walks.
Then I wasn’t sure which way to go, since I was obviously turned around due to the curves on John Forsyth Rd.
I did manage to pick the right way and at that point, I was almost home. 🙂
So – google maps tells me that the first part of the walk to Dakota was 2 km and the 2nd part on the way home was 2.2 km (not taking my detour into account). I would guess the total to be a 3 km walk though. I didn’t manage to catch the entire detour in my picture.
