Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh & Muskoka Lakes Winery

It’s officially fall, and to celebrate my favourite season, I visited Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh & Muskoka Lakes Winery.

I have to be honest –it didn’t feel much like autumn, though. The temperatures reaching 30 + Celsius, and the humidity, making it feel more like it was in the 40’s.

But that didn’t stop us from checking out the property. Johnston’s Cravberry Marsh offers daily tours, wine tasting and the first weekend after Thanksgiving, they host their annual Cranberry Festival — which, I hope to check out too!

While you’re there, you can pop into their store. Cranberry delights all around – – from candles, chocolates to wines. Perfect for this colourful season. πŸ™‚

Time to cool off at the nearby Muskoka Lakes.

My dog & Ajax Rotary Park

Ajax Rotary Park — a great place to enjoy nature, get a view of the water, without the hassle of a long drive. And a nice way to spend a Friday evening!

Happy end-of-the-week to everyone! Tonight, we enjoyed a long walk through the park, met a cyclist who biked all the way from Kitchener and another doggie friend who could have been TΓ‘ta’s cousin! A great start to the weekend, if I do say so myself!

Did I mention it also feels like autumn down by the water? LOVE IT!

Iceland: one year later

It’s been one year since I visited Iceland. One year ago this month, I was packing my bags and heading out to one of the most visually stunning trips ever. Β From guestrooms, to hotel rooms , the bright sun to the shivery nights, I am grateful to have spent Β two weeks in this glorious – almost other world – country. (View the posts here)

Back to school time usually means fresh starts and more adventure. But as I look back on the year gone by, it’s pretty incredible to think of where I’ve gone, what I’ve seen and who I’ve met. Thank you to everyone who helped make it possible, and who helped us along the journey. I certainly plan on another more excitment this “school year,” if you will.

As a little look back (or throwback), here are a few aerials from Iceland which I haven’t shared until now.
