On the weekend we went to Muskoka. It's about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Toronto and a little colder and snowier than the city. We used to visit this region a lot and were keen to go back. On the way we stopped at the McMichael Gallery, which features Canadian artists and is really something. Poppet is finally of an age to do galleries properly, she particularly like the Inuit section and all the big sculptures outside in the grounds.
Our hotel of choice was Rawley Resort. A proper grownup place to stay and just perfect for one night. We were welcomed with butter tarts and classical music playing in our room. The restaurant downstairs only has real glass and cutlery and cloth napkins. We discussed table manners and keeping one's elbows off the table. There was even a cheesy piano player who managed a few Disney classics to Poppet's delight.
Not much else to say (I'm meant to be sewing!) but a lot of pictures instead. Here you go..
And then we went to the farmers' market on our street and stocked up. A restful overnighter and now I don't need to cook for a few days. Bliss!
