Snapshots from our Recent Trip Out East

As I've mentioned, we were away last week visiting family in Ontario. The weather wasn't great and we ended up staying indoors for most of the time. I still managed to get some pictures though.

This will give you a bit of a look at where we were and what we were doing. (Click on images to enlarge.)

Lovely silver carving set my husband's Grandma sent home with us. The set belonged to her parents. 

The house my husband's Grandfather (Poppa) grew up in. The house continues to be kept "in the family."

A few other old homes in the area. There is so much brick out there! It's really quite lovely. 

A local fishing business where we picked up some fresh lake trout for supper. Mmmm. 

Signs of Spring: A few brave blooms ventured out in the snow and cold.

Air Dry: Grandma still likes to hang some of her laundry out to dry.

Down by the Bay (Georgian Bay, ON) 

This is the same Georgian Bay where Sarah Richardson has her cottage. It is a very pretty spot. My husband's grandparents have a view of the bay from their backyard.

We did spend three days in Toronto as well, but since it was so cold I didn't get out to take any pictures. Maybe next time we'll get some sunshine. It felt like I was back in SK with the weather the way it was!

That's our trip in a nutshell. We enjoyed our time away, but it's always good to be home.



  1. Great pics, I especially love old brick houses!

  2. I love living in Vancouver but I'll never love the architecture here like I do with those gorgeous brick Victorian era homes. When I was back in TO last summer I felt my heart stop when I hung out in our old neighbourhood. You are so lucky to have inherited such gorgeous silverware.


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to comment!
