Around the Training Centre

This week and next I am holding courses at the Kingbridge Centre north of Toronto.

This is a great setup for training. They have a three story building with training rooms, a hotel wing and a great kitchen and dining area.

It sometimes makes it a bit hard to concentrate on the course.

Near my training room is this quote by Wilbur Wright. He said that “Men won’t fly for a thousand years.” After a disheartening try in 1901 to fly, Wilbur made this statement to Orville on their train ride back home to Dayton.

However, the Wright brothers did not give up, and instead only two years later they made their first flight.

After dinner this evening I again took a hike on the trails around the centre. There are about 3-4 miles of trails through the woods and meadows.

I ran across this little scene during the hike tonight. Tucked away on a little side path was a tree swing.

I thought about stopping and swinging for awhile, but the sky was darkening from storm clouds and the setting sun. The mosquitoes were also coming out in force.

As I got back to the centre the sun was setting and the lights had come on in the hotel wing.

I like the way the lights are reflected in the pond and also the water spray of the fountain. It was a beautiful sight. I would have liked to have sat and watched for awhile, but the humidity was rapidly increasing due to the storm heading our way. There were also a lot of mosquitoes near the water and I did not want to get eaten up đŸ™‚

Now for some sleep to help overcome my jetlag.
