An Underwater Adventure at the Vancouver Aquarium [Vancouver, BC]

While visiting the beautiful city of Vancouver I found myself captivated by the Pacific Ocean. The way the rays of sunshine jumped from wave to wave entrances me the same way looking into the center of a campfire does – fully and completely sucking me into what feels like a meditative state. I find it […]

Maple Town: A Canadian Tradition [Mountsberg Conservation Area, ON]

I love maple syrup. It’s sticky, honey-brown, delicious on pancakes with sausages and I couldn’t be luckier that nearly 100% of all the maple syrup in the world is made within a day’s drive from my own front yard. Usually, the first week in April has hubby and I driving to his hometown of Elmira, […]

Sunny Point Resort [Parry Sound, ON]

This summer my thoughtful and scheming hubby “kiss-napped” me for my birthday and surprised me with a mid-week getaway to a beautiful Muskokan resort just outside of Parry Sound called Sunny Point. I have been saving this piece in my back pocket for a cold winter day in order to relive the warm, sun-filled days […]

Royal Botanical Gardens [Burlington, ON]

The Forest In My Room: Carousel Players [St. Catharines, ON]

The first Carousel Players performance I saw – Water Under The Bridge – was a huge hit with children and adults alike. The Forest In My Room is no different and it was an honour to be invited back. Written by playwright Thomas Morgan Jones, The Forest In My Room is described as a story […]

Mad about Maple: White Meadows Farm [Pelham, ON]

Have you ever experienced a Maple Syrup coma? Well, I have – most recently at White Meadows Farms – and how sweet it is! In my years of driving up Effingham road would you believe I’ve never stopped until now? I know I say this somewhat often but – shame on me! Nestled beside Short […]

Get Involved at Water Under the Bridge: Theatre for Kids [St. Catharines, ON]

This Fall I had the pleasure of attending Water Under the Bridge – a participatory play by Carousel Players. Targeting children from Kindergarten to Gr. 3, this play was a HOOT! Not having any kids of my own, but wanting to showcase some parent friendly content on the site, I brought along the Local Lux […]
