Here are some ways we can enjoy each other’s company in the sun — and still be safe.
Social Distance Hiking and Walking
Grab a close friend, or a family member, and go exploring! Social distance walking is Ontario government approved, and can be a great summer activity to participate in. Whether you are walking alongside a peaceful pond, or on an exhilarating trail — this activity fits well with summer, while ensuring everyone is staying safe!
Taking a Drive to Watch the Sunset
This activity can be done with someone you are currently not distancing from (your partner, child, or someone you are currently living with). I recently went on a drive with my mom, and it was so relaxing and surprisingly fun! We drove up north, didn’t have a set destination, and saw some amazing scenery along the way. This is a safe way to get out of the house and explore the world around you! Whether it’s a 10 minute or 2 hour drive — it’s a summer adventure waiting to happen!
Visit a Shoreline or Lake
As you engage in this activity, make sure you are staying at least 6 feet away from others, while enjoying the beautiful scenery around you. The serenity and calmness of a body of water can really help you remain positive through these uncertain times. In Barrie, Centennial Park is a wonderful spot to catch a beautiful and safe sunset, during this summer.
Yes, this summer may look different than other summers — but that doesn’t mean we won’t have fun.
