Georgian Bay is separated from the main part of Lake Huron by the Bruce Peninsula. It has more than 30,000 islands and over 2,000 kilometres of shoreline. In the summer months, it attracts tourists from far and wide, who come to enjoy nature and the fabulous beaches.
On Sunday, we visited Blue Mountain, which is a ski resort during the winter months. It is a long time since our last visit, when the resort was in the early stages of development. I think that it has a certain charm, which is so often lacking in modern developments.
This photograph shows one of the ski runs in the background.
And the building with the canopy is a chocolate shop, which we felt obliged to visit! After all, what could be nicer than sharing chocolate with friends?
There was a fire in the grate in the centre of the square, but it was too cold to even stand around it and enjoy the warmth!
We stayed an extra night and came home yesterday feeling refreshed for a change in routine.
