Cobourg Beach

Last Monday was the Victoria Day holiday and with nothing planned we thought it would be fun to head down to Cobourg and explore the waterfront. The morning started out sunny and warm, but by the time we got down to the lake it was quite cloudy and super windy… which made for some better…

Kiwanis Heydenshore Park in Whitby

Following a trip to the Open Doors event at the Whitby Rail Maintenance Facility, we took the kids down to the lake shore in Whitby to play in the park and on the beach. The light was flat and dull and there was no wind making the calm lake and sky blend into each other. Below…

Whitby Rail Maintenance Facility

I wasn’t too impressed by the options in Peterborough this year, so when my sister-in-law suggested we go to the event at the Whitby Rail Maintenance Facility, I was all over it. It was…

This has been Toronto’s dumping ground for construction waste since the 1960’s. As such, the beaches are pretty much made up of eroded bricks, concrete…
