It’s a long walk from our house to the nearest grocery store. It’s even longer for my preschooler’s wee little legs. Plus, I’m pregnant.
My spouse has to drive all over Canada for his job and can be gone for up to a month at a time, so when our second vehicle broke down without notice, things were grim. If he takes time off, there’s no extra cash to fix the car situation, and without him we’re walking.
Did you know that Albert County is going to play a part in this upcoming Festival? The orienteering events in Albert County are part of the 2015 Canadian Orienteering Championships. There will be events in all 3 Maritime Provinces and on August 16 and 17, events are planned in the White Rock Recreation area in Hillsborough and the Hopewell Rocks. More than 250 people are expected from North America, Europe and Australia.
What is orienteering? It is a sport that involves finding your way around the countryside using a map and compass to navigate and visit control point locations marked on the map. No GPS allowed! Think of it as a car rally on foot. The person who finds all the control points in the shortest time wins.
