My hubby John likes to play golf but figures his skill set doesn’t justify big green fees every time he wants to bring out the clubs. A few years ago, he and my 70something Uncle discovered Tomahawk in Thornbury and they were hooked. Situated on just over 51 acres of land just south of town, [...]

While some of us are still hunkering down, there is no doubt that there are signs of Spring in the air. Just like Spring market home buyers, these birds are busy building or settling into a new nest. Or given the location they’ve chosen, are they building a nest egg?
What the heck? Can someone tell me what this means? Chris and I drove past this strange “art” marking both sides of someone’s driveway. Toy horses, slow sign, a flag, a FAN? I’ve seen all kinds of lawn ornaments but this one has us scratching our heads. Any ideas?
February 18th and is Family Day and there are all kinds of events planned for that week-end in this area. Blue Mountain Village as always offers plenty of family-friendly activities from ice skating and swimming to horse wagon rides and a visit from the Birds of Flight. Blue has also recently released a great little [...]
I often notice really nice cars, maybe because they are also clean ones, pulling into town on the week-ends and then I see their occupants shopping in the Vintages section of Collingwood’s LCBO before filling their Whole Food bags over at Loblaws with stuff from the drooling aisle.

I’ve been on the run a bit this week but had a few things I really wanted to share with you. Kate and Wills are expecting!! Sorry about that. I’ve heard it so often in the last 72 hours and that it’s playing like some catchy tune in my head. The news appears to be [...]
I particularly love two events in Collingwood. One is Canada Day and the other is the annual lighting of the town Christmas tree. These are the events that bring everyone out in full force and we can really see the wonderful collage of people that make up Collingwood. My hubby was out of town yesterday [...]
I happen to love roundabouts so am pretty excited that there several new ones opening up soon with the new Highway 26 realignment between Collingwood and Wasaga Beach. I know that these traffic-calming inventions intimidate some people but really, they are not that bad and they really do work. The Region of Waterloo provides great [...]
We had our first real snow this week-end. It’s something worth knowing if you are choosing an area here in which to live. Being situated in an area blessed with both a “mountain” escarpment and a large body of water, we have real micro-climates in this area. Here at our home in Collingwood, we barely [...]
