With the sun beaming down on Regina on Wednesday, many people took the opportunity to get outside.
Several parents took their kids to the park, stopping for a picnic along the way.
“Sitting on the nice green grass already having a picnic in the sunshine, and having a play … The weather’s just so gorgeous, it’s time to get outside. These kids need to run around and have a nice time,” said one woman at Candy Cane Park.
A mother and father sat at one of the park’s picnic tables with two small kids.
“We thought we’d come out and enjoy the weather. Picked up my husband from work for lunch.”
Other people brought some more unusual activities outdoors.
One woman was sewing as her children ran around in the playground.
“I like to sew. I like to sew wherever we are. Usually it’s been inside for the last few months so, figured to get some time out and watch the kids have some fun.”
At Wascana Park, two men were practicing what is, essentially, tightrope walking. They put up a taut flat strap between two trees about 10 metres apart, and tried to balance as they walked along. They call it slacklining.
Ty said he’d been out doing this in the park for the past few days, enjoying the weather. He picked up the hobby a couple of years ago.
“There was a couple guys doing it a couple other places, and I just decided I’d pick one up one day and try it out myself.”
As people get better and better, Ty said they can manage to do tricks and flips on the line.
The rest of the week won’t be so nice. The forecasted highs for Thursday and Friday are both 15 C.
