whimsy

Cuppycake and I

recently celebrated an Anniversary!

Oh, joy!  To still employ such wedded-bliss, as this!

And in typical fashion we spent the day doing what we love best:

 

Spending time together!

 

On a whim & with a whisp of whimsy in our hearts we set out for nearby Canada for a anniversary day-cation to Niagara-on-the Lake, Ontario.

A short jaunt from whence we reside, (unless you neglect to take your passports and need to turn-around and retrieve them before crossing the border,) it is a lovely area we have enjoyed visiting on multiple occasions.

Located in Canada’s wine country, Niagara-on-the-Lake presents a well-preserved 19th-century village and its charms.

To my friend Caralyn: Look what I found!!!

And whether you drive or bike through the area, stop at one of the 100+ wineries, visit Fort George National Historic Site, or ride along the Niagara Escarpment on horseback or book a white-water adventure at nearby Niagara Falls (you might have heard of them) you are sure to enjoy this quaint little community.

Stopping in for a pint to toast our future daughter-in-law at our favorite pub, The Olde Angel Inn, which is the oldest operating inn in all of Ontario!

Stylish. Elegant. Warm. Something to see and something to share.

We both highly agree – whether it’s a casual visit or a formal event, Stratus Winery welcomes you to a place, to an experience and to wines well worth remembering! Normally not white wine purveyors we were delighted to discover their Chardonnay was exquisite!

 

“Champers” in the room & “tea time” at the Prince of Wales is often a must!

And there is unfailingly..

so much whimsy to be had in a day!

hugs n’ blessings for all the whimsy you too hold in your heart and the special ways you allow it to come out and play!
