I can’t believe it is Day 4 already. It really is true that “TIME FLIES WHEN YOU ARE HAVING FUN!”
Today we were up bright and early and after a lovely breakfast, were off to the Clarington Family Outdoor Adventure Park. Oh and did I mention that Olivia and I were interviewed on City TV! It was a great opportunity to promote the Clarington Family Outdoor Adventure Park that was hosting us for the morning. IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not wear a white skirt to a zoo! Good thing I had a Tide stick in my bag. One of the goats decided he should jump on me and although I loved the affectionate attention, his feet were not very clean!
After the Adventure Park we went to Bluffers Park. The park and beach is stunning! It’s located at the base of the Scarborough Bluff and is a gorgeous setting to spend the afternoon. Located on Lake Ontario it has a scenic beach area and lots of hiking trails. Eight of us were talked into trying paddle boarding. What a great experience, although no one warned me that Lake Ontario is very cold!
After spending time in the great outdoors, we then headed off to the Yorkdale Mall for some serious retail therapy at NINE WEST! Nine West not only sponsored our gorgeous shoes for the pageant but also gifted each of us with a $50.00 gift certificate to purchase additional shoes, purses or sunglasses. Not only did we get the gift certificate but we also got a discount as well! Did I mention I LOVE SHOES!
After changing we headed off to Memories of Japan for a wonderful meal! Dinner was an entertaining affair with lots of joke sharing, laughs and incredible food!
I am trying to capture the essence of my Teenage Canada Pageant weekend journey but it is difficult to put into words what an incredible few days this has been. New experiences, new places and wonderful new friends!
Well Diary, let’s see what tomorrow brings!
