A pedestrian’s perspective

This week, with two cars and three drivers in the house, I have been walking from my house near the Mountain brow to my office downtown.

What a difference in perspective from my usual driveway-to-driveway experience!

From the top of James Street stairs overlooking a bustling city and a gorgeous harbour, past St. Joseph’s Hospital, the eager patrons at Steve’s Open Kitchen (voted #1 breakfast in town),  the beautiful architecture of the terraces, James Street Baptist, St. Paul’s, the old Bank of Montreal and the Landed Bank and Loan Building, on into Gore Park, it provided a whole new and more insightful view of some of Hamilton’s better and lesser-known assets – and a great start to the day.
