walking to see Oval construction on the Commons

Halifax Commons, path

At lunch today I walked over to and across the Halifax Commons.  My goal:  scope out the construction on the “permanent oval”.  Wow lots of action going on.  Looking forward to seeing the oval take shape and finally skating thereon.

Today was the first time I actually followed a narrow, unpaved path across the open space. Previously I have been on the paved paths or the grass.  Following the narrow beaten earth actually takes either a bit of skill and attention – or – no attention at all.  It seems that, as wide as it is, it is narrow enough to have some strange kinship with a narrow curb, or a line.
