The first thing I noticed was that the women cut all the lawns and the men drive all the pickups. But actually, a lot of women are driving pickups too. Typical small town Ontario, eh?

Working on a fixer-upper entailed many trips to Home Depot and Canadian Tire, but,

This is a place where you like to take the long way home

At 40 km/hr (or less)

And I haven’t been tailgated once

From 830,000 to 22,000

50 meters to the entrance to a 60 km biking network

And that’s only in town

Morning bike ride to a coffee shop in Stayner

Picnic at the top of the Century Express chair

Entranced by the turquoise layers on the Bay

Spellbound by the Georgian Bay sunset

I feel that we’ve arrived
