The Sunday Stills Challenge hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt is sports and hobbies this week. You can join the challenge here.
Being Canadian, hockey stands out as one of our favorite sport activities.
The contemporary sport of ice hockey was developed in Canada, most notably in Montreal, where the first indoor game was played on March 3, 1875. Some characteristics of that game, such as the length of the ice rink and the use of a puck, have been retained to this day. Amateur ice hockey leagues began in the 1880s, and professional ice hockey originated around 1900. The Stanley Cup, emblematic of ice hockey club supremacy, was first awarded in 1893 to recognize the Canadian amateur champion and later became the championship trophy of the NHL.

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.Michael Jordan
One of our favorite hobbies on the island is bird watching. I’m still learning the names and enjoy trying for the perfect photo.
