Let’s get out of town (TO) and explore other areas in Ontario.

Toronto is fun to explore but if you live in the city you also want to escape and enjoy   the nature. My son took advantage that we were visiting and had a car to go north of Toronto… to Blue Mountain.

In this post I will share  a few photos from that visit. Let’s go…

The village of Blue Mountain. They like the Adirondak chairs in this area ! The first Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee while vacationing in  Westport , New York, in the  Adirondack Mountains  in 1903. Also called a  Muskoka chair  in Canada, it is a simple chair made of wood or man made materials, generally used outdoors. Originally made with 11 flat wooden boards, it features a straight back and seat and wide armrests.

…or maybe you would like to try those one,  ski style  in case you do not know what to do with old skis.

…and then we went to Wasaga Beach. Wasaga Beach is situated along the longest freshwater beach in the world, it is a popular summer tourist destination, located along the southern end of Georgian Bay, approximately two hours north of Toronto, and neighbours, to the west, the town of Collingwood. Wasaga Beach is situated along 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) of sandy beach on Nottawasaga Bay and the winding Nottawasaga River.    A record 18 endangered piping plovers have been spotted in Wasaga Beach. Piping Plover are nesting there.

It was nice to walk on the board walk. Many people were enjoying the beach on a nice sunny day.
