    Day 8 - Veggie day in Collingwood

    August 8 in Canada ⋅ 🌧 22 °C

    Whilst David felt the need to conquer the mountain this morning, I felt completely the opposite and had a lie in. The bed was so comfy it seemed a shame not to make the most of it.

    By the time David got back I’d managed to get up and we headed into the town of Collingwood to explore. We walked up the main street in Downtown and enjoyed strolling around some of the more eclectic shops before heading back to the resort.

    The sun decided to come out to play so we decided to have an afternoon by the pool, where we both promptly fell asleep for three hours - to say we caught the sun is a bit of an understatement! It was good to relax after a very hectic first week. Cant believe we landed in Toronto a week ago today!

    Just got back from dinner - David actually ordered a salad! The portions here are huge and everything comes with ‘fries’, hence the need for running up the mountain this morning!

    We’re leaving in the morning for our long drive along the top of Lake Ontario, but Westin Trillium has been a great place to stop and relax. There’s so much to do here, but I imagine that during the winter months, when everything is covered in snow is the time when its at its best!

    Day 7 - Westin Trillium Resort

    August 7 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    They say a change is as good as a rest and today proved that old adage right!

    We checked out of the Prince of Wales Hotel early this morning, leaving behind the timeless elegance and the peace and quiet and headed north to the Blue Mountain Resort in Collingwood and the Westin Trillium Hotel.

    The drive itself was uneventful, but as we ate up the miles it was interesting to watch the landscape change. The greenery went on as far as the eye could see with farmsteads dotted along the way with miles and miles separating neighbours.

    We arrived at the resort at 1pm. Our room wasn’t ready, but it wasn’t a problem as there is plenty to see and do here. We have been given an upgraded suite and the bed is huge! During the winter the resort is used for skiing and winter sports and during the Summer there are plenty of outdoor pursuits to enjoy. For instance, crazy golf, zip wires, their own version of go ape, a luge run, pedalos, mountain bike hire - the list is endless.

    We opted to take the gondola up the slopes and hike the 1.3km back down the mountain. The views from the top were spectacular and we enjoyed the walk after sitting in the car for 3 hours. Afterwards we hit the hot tub and the swimming pool to catch the last of the sun.

    After our showers we headed back out to the village and had a light supper at the Italian (so many restaurants to choose from).

    A Morning Stroll

    August 8 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    Woke up at a reasonable time this morning and just felt I needed to walk so decided to scale the main ski slope. Did it to the top in 20 mins and then headed back down again in pouring rain. Well worth it and smashed my exercise ring!

  • Day7

    Collingwood

    August 7 in Canada ⋅ 🌙 66 °F

    Today's road trip was to Collingwood in the Blue Mountains, we arrived around 2pm in the afternoon to blue skies and sunshine and are here for the day tomorrow. We couldn't resist the ski lift ride up the mountain to see the views.
