Steep is this hill...

The walk through Georgestown, where I park, to get to the Anna Templeton Centre, where I take my classes four days a week, usually takes about 15 minutes. It's not a bad walk as Georgestown, where I used to live, is a very walkable neighbourhood. I pass by the bakery (sometimes drop in for a bagel), the cafe, then past The Lantern and Presentation House, then The Gathering Place and the Basilica, then cross the street down some stairs...

...until I get here. This is the top of Victoria Street; another street I once lived on.

As you can see it is a rather steep hill. But down it I must go until I get to Duckworth where the Centre is. A pleasant enough walk......until the end of the day when I have to walk up Victoria Street.

Not sure what I will do in winter. If we have the usual freeze, thaw kind of weather it will be too hazardous for my middle-aged bones to risk, I think.

I could just slide down on my butt, I suppose...

Down by the harbour front on a gloomy day a few weeks ago

See the rope? See the hill beyond? That's Signal Hill with Cabot Tower.

But, if you follow that rope up to its top you can see, in the background, a glimpse of the promontory known as Gibbet Hill...can you guess why?
