Let’s keep the history alive

The existance of Heritage Farm depends heavily on the number of people who visit the place. They need more people to visit the site to get funding for maintenance and to keep the place running. Help me help them to keep the history alive by sharing this post to your friends and family. This little act could help them maintain the place and will  make them more visible to people. Pay them a visit if you are within the area and discover exciting details about BC’s History and indulge and relax in the elegant custom of Victorian-themed afternoon tea.

It was slightly overcast and the sun was barely peaking from the clouds. I debated if I wanted to stay tucked in my bed and enjoy the gloomy cold weather, or if should I go out and do something silly? When was the last time that you did something silly, like running or biking on a rainy day? Well, it’s been a long time since I did something like that, maybe it’s time to rekindle the silliness in me.

It was 25 minutes bike ride in a nice scenic and pave road, it was Sunday and the road was still quiet. I biked slow (as always), I enjoyed the feel of cold air in my face, I stopped to admire the view, I took my time despite the fact that the sky is showing a threat of rain. I eventually reached my destination, London Heritage Farm.

By the time I was ready to leave, it already started raining. Small drops, nothing to be worried about. Then the rain started pouring down, I was drenched and dripping wet but I was still biking slow. Better be safe than sorry, it was kind of crazy, and silly, but I enjoyed the ride. The important thing, before I knew it, I was already home sweet home.
