Fare on the Square, Farmer's Market, Public Market, Kingston, Ontario
Well, this is bittersweet, isn’t it?  Here we are facing a long weekend but on the other end of it is the start to a new school year and the beginning of the end of summer weather.  I have to say though, I’m ready to move on and to get a regular routine going again.  Mother Nature definitely made up for last summer with the weather these past 4 months so I certainly have no complaints.

This summer I enjoyed growing a rather fruitful garden, learning to build a fence, watching movies at the drive-in and at Market Square, eating delicious gelato (probably more than I should have), running at LeMoine Point, taking in concerts at Confederation Basin, dancing at the Blues Festival, busking on Princess Street, sitting on our many patios with a cold pint, going on the Haunted Walk…I could go on forever.  And yet, there are still so many things for me to explore in and around Kingston.

This weekend I plan to eat something delicious at Fare on the Square and maybe to catch some live music (Mauricio and The Latin Fusion Band are at The Mansion tonight and The Ones are at the RCHA tomorrow) and to generally enjoy these last few days of freedom.  Hopefully the weather will co-operate.

What was your favourite thing to do this summer?  Did you try anything new?  And just because school is starting, doesn’t mean the great weather is gone just yet.  So what else is in store for you before the cool winds start to blow and the leaves start to turn?

Thanks to LexnGer for the yummy photo of last year’s Fare on the Square.

  • J and I went to Prince Edward County and toured the taste trail ( It was a fantastic way to sample local cheese, produce, wine, cider, and meat! I highly recommend it, especially as it is only a stones throne away from Kingston!

    • Agreed! I love the taste trail! That’s where H proposed… :) I’m really hoping we can get in a trip over the next couple of weeks and maybe do some camping at Sandbanks for a night or two before the cold sets in.
