Táta & Me – Eric Cheng Photography

Okay, okay, okay. Don’t judge me, but I totally hired a photographer to take pictures of me and Táta! While I was on Instagram, I came across an incredible GTA-based photographer named Eric Cheng.

His style is so storybook like — whimsical and beautiful, to say the least.

We scheduled a session at Greenwood Park in Ajax at 6:30 a.m., this weekend! While were hoping for golden hour, I think we got even luckier — this fog added a certain mystical, magical feel to our photos. I absolutely adore them!

Here is Part I. Enjoy!

My first visit to Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, Toronto

It’s been open for years now, but I only JUST visited the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada in Toronto – as part of Scott’s birthday celebrations. We started off with dinner at Real Sports Bar and Grill, and took a five-minute walk over to the aquarium.

We went for around 8 p.m., for “Sharks After Dark” – an evening adventure around the aquarium. And it’s $5 less at night!

I knew it’d be fun, but I was not quite expecting it to be this well-done! With wall-to-wall aquariums over your head – you get to be right up close and personal with the sharks, turtles and stingray. What a unique experience for anyone visiting the city.

Lunch in Terrebonne, Quebec

A random road trip adventure – that’s what we did this weekend when we ate lunch in a small village just north of Montreal called Terrebonne, Quebec.

To be honest, it wasn’t totally random. We had to make a stop in Montreal to pick up something, so while we were there, we explored the suburb — which I found out about while researching nearby, pretty cities.

Our first stop – smoked meat sandwiches …. we picked a local, small restaurant called BYGS. Can I just say it was delightful!

And of course, we explored the Ile des Moulins – various mills dating back to as far as the mid 1700s. The area has been designated a historic site but the Government of Quebec. And according to Wikipedia, “Four years following the construction of the flour mill that is currently standing at the Île-des-moulins to this day, the Moulin neuf (New Mill) was built in 1850. In addition, around the same time in 1850, the seigniory office was established.”

One more site we checked out was the church in town – Paroisse Saint Louis, constructed in 1877.

Throwback Thursday: Belfast, United Kingdom

It’s another installment of my throwback travel series! Today, I’m continuing my United Kingdom journey, but this time I am focusing on Northern Ireland — more specifically Belfast.

Last week, I re-shared my England posts, and this week, get ready as I take you back to April 2008, Easter weekend, when I walked the streets of Belfast and went as far north as Giant’s Causeway.

I’d like to go back to Ireland one day and visit Dublin.
