What a trip! This past weekend Franco and I went up to Tobermory to visit with good friends of his. For those of you who have never been there (this was my first trip) this place is so incredibly beautiful! We had such an great time...our hosts were some of the most hospitable and generous people that I've met and their home was beautiful and welcoming. I am extremely surprised that I didn't gain 20lbs after eating all of the wonderful food that Jeannine prepared for us...especially her famous Kentucky Butter Cake...I am even more surprised that Franco was willing to share that!
The sunsets (as you can see) were breathtaking. On Saturday we took a 3 hour hike that brought us to those 70 foot cliffs that you can see. The water from that view makes you feel like you're somewhere tropical. On Monday we left around 2pm and took our time driving back...we made a few stops - one at this amazing candle shop and then we stopped at Sauble Beach for a couple hours where we shopped for a bit and then took a long walk along the beach. It was such a perfect day for that and I think even Franco might have gotten a little sun!
It was a very relaxing weekend that made it very difficult to return to work today. This is definitely a place that I would love to visit again (hopefully for a much longer period of time) and I would highly recommend it! Altho we didn't go scuba diving this time..apparently this place is the scuba diving capitol of Ontario or Canada (forgive me for being unsure of my facts), but it's one of those...lots of shipwrecks to explore!
For the record...I cannot take credit for these pics..Franco's friend Angelo took them with his digital...I on the other hand have to wait until I get my film processed!
