The BEST 6-Day Oahu Photo Itinerary

Hi there! I know I originally decided to do individual posts about our recent honeymoon to Hawaii but I came to the realization today that it would take ages and you/me would probably lose interest. This week I am going to share one mega post from Oahu and one mega post from Maui! Disclaimer: I should probably tell you that I am an avid itinerary planner – it is a lost skill nowadays! We packed…

Algonquin Provincial Park

Algonquin Glamping Photo Diary

Hi there! We recently got back from a “glamping” trip near Algonquin Provincial Park. We try to get together with the same group of 15-25 friends each year and decided to check out the Algonquin fall foliage this year. We decided to “glamp” since none of our friends owned camping equipment and we couldn’t resist the luxuries of a house. Glamping refers to ‘glamorous camping’, however one of my co-workers joked that we were ‘glottaging’…

Fall Inspiration in Hamilton Ontario

Hi there! As you may have gathered from social media, we were in Hamilton Ontario this past weekend on a nostalgic trip. We both spent 6 years in Hamilton for school and have many fond memories of this place. We also knew that we wanted to hit up some of the fall colours after getting back from Hawaii last week. I thought we would get up early each day to catch sunrise but we ended…

Zip Lining through the trees at …

Hi there! A few weekends ago we went zip lining at the Skywood Eco Adventures and had a great time! We had previously been to a zip lining aerial course in Quebec that was phenomenal and we were wondering how this local one compared. We just did the zip lining course this time and I was expecting it to be done quite quickly. To my surprise the tour actually lasted 3 hours and was very…

Brockville, Ontario

Check out the new Brockville Railway …

Hi there!! Every time I think we might be running out of local destinations to explore, we stumble across another one that blows us away! A couple of weeks ago Brockville opened the Brockville Railway Tunnel that spans underneath the city. My sister-in-law (Yes I can say that now!!) and my father sent us photos of this tunnel on separate occasions during its opening weekend. If you have ever been to Brockville then you know…

My First Time to the Canadian …

Hi there! As you may have gathered from the title, I visited the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) for the first time this year! I may have gone as a child, but this was the first visit that I can remember so I think that counts! We have been meaning to visit the CNE for many years but usually head to the cottage on summer weekends or Labour Day weekend. As many of you know, we…

Visiting the West Montrose Kissing Bridge

Hi there! Today we wanted to share some pics from the beautiful West Montrose Kissing Bridge from earlier this summer! As you can see above, the West Montrose Kissing Bridge is the only remaining covered bridge in Ontario! The West Montrose Kissing Bridge was the cutest little bridge and definitely worth a detour if you are in the area. The area is a little difficult to access since the adjacent land is private property and there…

Kingston, Ontario

Nine Mile Point Lighthouse

Hi there! This past weekend my maid-of-honour, Jenine, surprised me with a mini “bachelorette” party before our wedding! She knew I didn’t want a rambunctious party and so she told me to wear cute clothes and bring my camera. She surprised me by taking me on a biking trip around Wolfe Island and it was the most amazing day! We picked up the two cutest bikes from Cycle Wolfe Island as our rides for the day.…

Finding a Summer Sunflower Field

Hi there! About a year ago, I saw pictures of people running through sunflower fields and immediately added it to my bucket list. This year we patiently waited for the season to arrive again, but unfortunately had a lot of bad weather this year. Many sunflower farms told me that they had lost a lot of their crop or the crop was blooming very late. We were a little bummed out that we might not…

Lion's Head

Our First Attempt at Astrophotography

Hi there! In light of all of the celestial activity today with the full/partial solar eclipse I thought it would be fun to share our first attempt at astrophotography with you today! Earlier this summer we headed to the Lion’s Head Dark Sky Preserve to try out our hand at night photography. We had researched how to photograph the stars but weren’t sure how they would turn out. We waited for a clear night and…
