My random thoughts on just about everything, including the kitchen sink.

A Weekend in Muskoka
I love Muskoka. Except for maybe a few gems I've discovered in southern Africa, it might possibly be my favourite place to go. I didn't grow up with a cottage but camp was my cottage and I spent my summers there for well over a decade. There is something about being on a lake that is so relaxing and Muskoka is full of them. Joel and I were itching to get away and I happened to see a deal on Travelzoo for a resort in the heart of Muskoka. Our wonderful friends, Alice and Wayne, graciously offered to take the boys for the weekend so we could escape. We lucked out with the most gorgeous weekend of weather and had a fabulous time. A beautiful drive, naps, swimming, hot tub, sitting on the dock by the water, a nice meal, late night desserts, getting up whenever we wanted, a breakfast buffet. It was perfect. Here are a few glimpses....

"Dressed up" for dinner...meaning a nicer shirt with my jeans!
Happiest by water
Lunch at Weber's and possibly the first time I've eaten outside in November!
