So I have been pretty quiet on the blog. I’ve lost a bit of my motivation to write it because not many people are reading. I’m told to “write for myself” which yes, it great in theory, but we all know we like that people enjoy our writing and that it’s making an impact. Due to that, I’ve taken a bit of a break, but I do miss it. Another reason is IT’S SUMMER!!! I don’t like being inside when the warmer weather hits, so that has made it difficult to sit down and write as well. We’ve been go, go, go since early June. But I thought I’d write and let you know what we’ve been up to!
This summer, we have explored:
We went to Brambleberry Farms to pick strawberries and blueberries (which I promptly made jam and tarts out of). It’s a beautiful farm and great for a family trip or solo berry picking!
Stopped into Presqu’ile Park for a picnic and beautiful stroll along the beach.
Tried my hand at kayaking at Little Bluffs Conservation which is full of beautiful views!
Port Hope is one of my favourite places, so we spent a few hours wandering around. The new IT film is being filmed there so we did a self-guided IT tour which was pretty fun. I love scary movies!
Spent an evening at the Brighton Speedway cheered for cars and eating french fries (and some dirt).
Attended Empire Rockfest 2018 to see Billy Talent! It was fantastic and a night of letting loose, dancing, and screaming lyrics.
We stopped by Haute Goat to support a local business AND pet some pretty adorable goats. They also have alpacas, Icelandic horses, chickens, and ducks.
And lastly, we spent an afternoon at Sunnydale Farm where we donated to the local food bank for admission. A beautiful spot for photos, but please do not crowd them or trash their fields!
It has been a busy summer and that is only July. We are heading to Hourglass Mysteries this weekend to check out the escape rooms and to Sandbanks for my first visit! We’ve made so many memories already, and I can’t wait to keep exploring and experiencing all the beauty of this area and what this province has to offer. We’re planning a road trip around Ontario for next summer. What are some of your “must see” places in this Province?
