Sometimes, all it takes is one good idea to get started, right? This month, our issue is packed with ideas to somewhere nearby you’ve never been before or to something that you’ve wanted to do, but never got around to. Accomplishing this, won’t be difficult, when you have a ‘GoWestShore Bucket List’ to follow!

There is something about spring that’s so lovable. What’s not to love about getting outdoors—in the longer-lasting, sunny days of spring—without having to suit up. Life in the spring lane means I notice things more—or maybe there is just more to notice—like the sounds of returning birds and happy pond frogs or quick sightings of baby bunnies, ducklings, and frolicking squirrels.

And the colour of spring! Is there anything more hopeful than the singular spring colours in the leaves and grass and fields? My spirits rise when flowers start to bloom. Without a really fixed plan to do so, I find myself echoing the bright aura of their colour pallet, shedding my taupe, black, brown and greys for vibrant reds, yellows, purples and sky-blues.

I know for sure that I get more done in the spring. It’s easier for me to revitalize my exercise regimen when I use nature as my outdoor gymnasium. Spring is the time to live in the sunshine, eat outside and drink in the air.
