Have you walked the waterfront, “enough already”? If the answer is “yes” you may be suffering from Waterfront Fatigue.
Increased television watching and the desire to “just stay home” are indications of trouble. If this describes you, its not too late.
The causes of this Rupert-specific condition include the closure of public access to the downtown waterfront; no access to Ridley Island; further back in our history, the loss of the gondola up the mountain; and… no sign of hope for change.
Here are three steps you can take: visit the Sunken Gardens, especially the benches and picnic tables at the top level; visit the Port Edward Lions Park with the excellent view of Porpoise Harbour, flowers and green grass; and finally, if there is an election this fall to replace Jennifer Rice on City Council at least vote.
What are your suggestions to eradicate this ailment (which may or may not be related to Butze Burnout)? Thank you.
