Pumpkins at Pingles Farm Market

As part of my yearly tradition, I once again visited Pingles Farm Market in Hampton, Ontario (just outside of Oshawa) for my annual Pumpkins at Pingles Farm Market photo opt.

Despite a strict no-dog policy, the farm allowed me to bring Táta after hours for some golden hour snaps! They turned out great — always such a picturesque backdrop.

This has been one of my favourite places every year to enjoy autumn. Not only can you pick up your perfect pumpkin, but they offer fresh fruits, backed good, wagon rides and a corn maze.

This year, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to bring Táta for these annual photos. Also, congratulations to Pingles Farm Maket on celebrating 30 successful years in our community!

October at Stroud’s Farm

We welcomed October at Stroud’s Farm this weekend! It’s hard to find a dog-friendly farm, but Cindy at Stroud’s Farms allowed us to take some pictures with Táta — so thank you for that!

Stroud’s Farm is a great place for Whitby and Ajax residents especially to snatch up their pumpkins. The farm’s storefront can be found at just west of Lakeridge Road on the south side of Kingston Road. They have a beautiful selection of soon-to-be jack-o-lanterns on display at the front of store — perfect for a fall photo! They also offer a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, other foods and flowers.

Many thanks to Stroud’s Farm for helping us welcome this wonderful month of colour! It’s my favourite time of year!

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. 🙂

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 Táta’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.  From guestrooms, to hotel rooms , the bright sun to the shivery nights, I am grateful to have spent  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.
