Hello kind krafters! I hope you’re all doing well, and for those of you who are students, enjoying the post University exam season! For me finishing exams means a number of things. The start of a four month summer and a nice break from spending my weekdays in classrooms is a particular favorite. The end of exam season for me also means the start of full time working hours at a retail and wholesale industry shop here in Halifax, called Murphy Gear. For the past four summers this has been how I’ve spent my time; work most of the week, play in the outdoors on my off time, and volunteer whenever I can.
This year I decided to change it up a bit, and added in an Internship, completed as an elective through the College of Sustainability at Dalhousie. I’m not one to enjoy spending my summer days inside a classroom, so I knew my internship would have to involve some outdoor work and lots of playtime in the natural world. Enjoying physical activity, being an avid hiker, and wanting to find a way to promote greater accessibility and community awareness of outdoor recreation opportunities in Halifax, a hiking related project was my natural choice.
In my happy place, hiking in Musquodoboit Harbour, Nova Scotia.
