Saturday was the Edmonton opera's La Traviata, a Verdi classic.
Saturday was also the opening of the South extension of the LRT here in Edmonton - a glorious day, to be sure! Thousands of people showed up to ride the line from one end to the other during the day of festivities planned by the city. After I got home from work Don and I walked to the South Campus station and saw tons of families out with kids being excited about buses and trains. Very cool.
We were planning on taking our new train to the opera, but you still have to walk across the parking lot to get inside the auditorium. Instead we biked for the door to door appeal.
It may be spring, but it was still cold. After the photos I threw on a wool cape that I bought in Dublin last year. It kept everything toasty except my legs. However, the ride wasn't long and (as usual) after pedaling hard for a few minutes the inner warmth exceeded the outer cold.
And yes, I did wear a helmet. It's just sitting in the basket for the picture, underneath the heap of wool.
34 weeks and going strong (with the baby, that is)!
