After almost ten years living in the UK we’ve made the monumental decision to wrench up our anchor and set sail, destination Canada.
Well hello there! Remember me? I’m the person who used to write this little blog with some semblance of regularity. Not so recently, well for the past year.
After four hours of driving through the impossibly flat Canadian Prairies just about any change would have been notable, but to come upon a landscape like this was awe-inspiring.
It’s like stepping onto another planet or into another world.
The six of us stood still as statues, hands outstretched with palms to the sky in the silence of the forest.
We’ve been in Canada for just over a week and it feels like we’ve been living in a bit of a Canadian cliché. We haven’t even been doing it on purpose, it’s just kind of happened.
Summer is one of the things that I miss the most about my hometown, Ottawa. The glorious heat, jumping in the lake at my grandparents cottage, and the music festival that has become an institution in the city, Bluesfest!
The theme of my most recent trip home to Ottawa for Christmas? Snow! Lots and lots and lots of new fallen snow!
You really can’t help falling for fall when the season makes the landscape so breathtakingly beautiful. I don’t think there is anywhere in the world that does fall better than Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec.
Photo of the day – enjoying the fall colours at my favourite place on earth, my grandparents cottage in Quebec. I’ll be back soon with more of our Canadian adventures soon!
If the theme is waterfalls the only option for me really is Niagara Falls – Canadian side, of course! The giant Horseshoe Falls located on the Niagara River in Southern Ontario are a sight to behold, and to hear. They are beautiful and awe-inspiring to look at
