I got my bicycle and bike rack road ready yesterday and took it into town for a ride, since the country roads and trails are still muddy and icy. It was sunny and balmy up in the northern boonies where I am, but in town a fog had come in, making it chilly. It was still wonderful to be on the bike again though, and I took LOTs of blog pictures.
This is not a pile of dirt. This, believe it or not, is snow. This field, just north of the 401 and Division St., is where they bring all the snow that they can’t find room for in town. I wonder how that will take to melt.
This is more student housing being built at Macdonell and Johnson. There is a lot of student housing being built because the student population has been growing exponentially and Queen’s has not kept up. There are several new buildings just off Princess St., the huge complex at Victoria and Princess, where the big fire was, a couple of new residence buildings down near the old residence buildings near King St., and this. It says ready summer 2015. Hmmm…
St. Mary’s Hospital in the fog. Thankfully, I am not having to visit there at the moment.
The Time sculpture. But where is Wolfe Island?
Princess Street between Clergy and Barrie. Lots of cute shops.
I’m not sure if this one has changed hands. It still looks like the same shop, but it is called The Knack Shack. I’ll have to go in and ask when it is open.
A couple of Kingston artists in the window of Gallery Raymond–Frank Edwards, who I don’t know, but he does nice work, and Grace George, who has been around Kingston for many years.
It’s grad season and there are lots of pretty, sparkly dresses in the window of Phase 2.
An old Kingston fixture, which I have actually never been in, for shame. It sounds like they have some good music events, like a ukulele night and according to someone on Flickr, it was once owned by Sir John A. himself and he was its best customer, I’m sure.
