Happy Thanksgiving Monday! I hope you all are enjoying the beautiful long weekend. If you have been following me on Instagram, you probably have seen a few pictures of my mini vacay up at Collingwood. I absolutely love spending my days up here doing nothing but admiring the beauty of nature, hiking along the Beaver Valley, pampering myself at the spa, and enjoying mouth-watering meals - family style.
Fall color is certainly a big draw of many to visit the Beaver Valley for the spectacularly vivid landscapes. We did a few hikes over the past couple of days and man the one on Saturday was more than 5 hours long!! Lesson Learned: never trust a German when he tells you it's a "manageable" hike! Nonetheless, the views were incredible and here are a few of my favourites:
I was in charged for the sandwich department for our daily lunch ... egg, turkey breast, lettuce, avocado, gouda, and rosemary bread (freshly baked by local bakery: Brilliant!): so DELICIOUS! Rather healthy too, don't you think?

Our anniversary dinner was at our favourite local restaurant, Flying Chestnut, in Eugenia. Super delicious food and if you are in the area, you have got to check it out. Reservation recommended and you won't be disappointed.
Before heading out this Thanksgiving Monday for more outdoor fun, here is a magical shot from Friday evening when I caught this magnificent creature looking at the sunset. He is such a stunner!
