sporty and cheap date ideas
Take advantage of this great Spring weather and plan an active and adventurous date with your honey. 1. Go for a romantic bike ride & picnic Dust off your bike, pack a light picnic and hit the road with your honey for a few hours. After riding for a few hours step off your bikes, take out your picnic of light sandwiches, fruits and maybe a little vino, and relax. After lunch take a nap, relax and when you're ready ride home. This is a fun date idea that can be as short or as long as you want it, so make it your own and enjoy! 2. Go boating Most cities and towns have a nearby lake, ocean or river, so take advantage of it! Rent a canoe or kayak and spend a few hours slowly paddling and enjoying the peace of the water. 3. Try out rock climbing This activity is sure to get your blood rushing, whether it's an indoor gym or outdoor area! The thrill of climbing high will get your blood rushing and when you have to lean back to get down you are sure to skip a few heartbeats! Rock climbing is a great trust builder, and for some thrill seekers the excitement can be super sexy! 4. Take a hike! Hiking is a fun way to see the outdoors and to get fit! You can go to the countryside, mountains, or even in your own city - so find your fancy and spend a few hours walking and talking...maybe even ending up at a cute cafe for a little lunch or afternoon tea.
Seven Ways to Have Free Summer Fun

Summer is here and it’s time to get active and enjoy the good life – but with this still slow economy some of us are not feeling like celebrating the change of seasons. Turn that frown upside down, there are several ways to enjoy summer fun for free this year.

1. Go to local festivals and street parades. In almost all towns and cities there are several free events around town that are fun to watch and cost nothing. My favourites are the jazz festivals, sandcastle contests and street parades. Instead of saying “oh I’d like to do XXXX this summer” or “we should go to XXXX this summer” put it on a list and get ‘er done! You’ll have summer memories that will last a lifetime. 2. Make outdoor picnics. You have to eat meals anyways, so make them into events and have them in local parks or at the beach. It will be a great way to enjoy the outdoors and you can also invite friends and family to join for extra fun. 3. Take regular after dinner walks in different neighbourhoods. I love the routine of tidying up quickly after dinner and just taking a nice stroll in a new area. It helps me clear the day out of my head and learn about a new neighbourhood. 4. Volunteer at a local charities special event this summer. You will be helping out the community, feeling good about yourself and maybe making some new friends. Success!

5. Become an outdoor photographer. Most of us have cameras and all the tools we need to discover a new hobby like photography so use it! Learn on the internet (free!) how to take great photos and use your newly acquired talents. When it’s chilly in the winter you can spend your time indoors organizing your photos into albums. 6. Visit all the local art galleries in your area. Free and oh so cultured! 7. Learn about astronomy and study the night sky. I love the idea of sitting outside, watching the stars, and dreaming of far off places – can it get more tempting?
