Take it Outside

As some of you may know, it was a long weekend up here in the Great White North and although there wasn't any snow as the weatherman threatened, it was pretty damn cold and windy. But the sun shone and we went for a hike on part of the Bruce Trail that we had never been to before.

This is Devil's Monument, one of the sea stacks found along Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. Because of the temperatures there weren't many people out and it was gorgeous. It never ceases to amaze me how much the coast of the Bay can seem so much like being on the ocean.

The water is the colour of the Mediterranean (just not the temperature)

  1. So gorgeous! I see what you mean.... And thank you so much for your kind email! It really is odd to encounter someone else with a husband like mine! ;)

    I am excited for our adventure and excited for him to find his spot in the boating world! And if it puts us near the water? Sounds good to me!:)))

  2. I love the north, it is so much more scenic than the south!

  3. What a gorgeous hike! Thanks for taking us along. It actually looks a bit like Maine.

  4. Thank you for visiting my site! Great pictures, even though it looks cold it seems like you had fun!

  5. That looks like an absolutely wonderful way to spend a long holiday weekend. Just gorgeous!

  6. Despite our cold weather, looks like you managed to have a great long weekend.
    But WHY is the weather so gorgeous now??? Not that I'm complaining about great weather, but it would have been nice to have it on the weekend.

  7. Amy, so glad we connected even as "wives of ..."
    Otin, north or south, I love the water
    Sarah, it does remind me of Maine every day
