Zucchini Races!

This is still from my bike ride on Saturday.  It’s the corner of Johnson and University–a sushi shop.

Kingston is an old and traditional town, as well as one of the penal capitals of the country, if not THE penal capital of the country, even though a couple of the prisons have closed down.    As well as heads on posts, we also do stocks and drawing and quartering.

I checked out the Sunday Market at the Memorial Centre.  I was supposed to do the Sunday Antiques Market, but the weather prophesied severe thunderstorms all day.  It was fine all day, until a small thunderstorm in the evening.  Anyway, I had an unexpected day off.  This is a view of Nelson Street, across the Memorial Centre grounds.  The discussion of where to have a new high school has come back to the Memorial Centre, after that had been ruled out before.  It is certainly a good, central location, but it would be a pity to lose any kind of park space because this neighbourhood doesn’t have much of that.

This market is very relaxed and more of a family affair than the downtown market.  This was fun.  Kids made race cars out of vegetables, and then ran them down this track.  It was a great, fun idea and the kids were right into it.

A memorial wall for all those Kingstonians killed in wars–from the Boer War on.

There is a water park on the Memorial Centre grounds as well.  A great spot for kids.
