The Beach

DSC_0904

Matt’s parents have gone on a trip for a little while, which means Matt (and sometimes me!) has a beautiful home to runaway to whenever he likes. I’m not sure what it is about his parents home, but I instantly fell in love with it during my first visit.

It’s pretty far east in Toronto, located in the beaches, which makes you feel like you have left the city, and are staying in a sweet little cottage, only maybe not so little. It has a vibe that can only make you feel relaxed and happy (smiles!!!).  It is an oasis, and one I always look forward to visiting. You can follow the sun all day, from the porch, to the balcony, to the backyard. It makes waking up in the morning not such a chore, but something to be desired. Gus also really loves it – lots of window ledge perching and peeking and sun bathing. Our very own solar baby Gus.

Their home is also a short walk to the beach and an amazing fenced in dog park, so wee Gus can roam as he pleases. We took a stroll through the ravine yesterday afternoon, and we plan to go there again on my day off this week and take some woodsy barefooted photos. Needless to say, it is much easier on the eyes than my strange neighborhood of Galaxy Donuts and halfway houses…sorry, Parkdale, I do actually love you and don’t plan to leave you.

Oh! And just a reminder about the Montreal Pop-up we are participating in! Any of you MTL’ers or Ottawanians (who don’t mind taking a drive), come visit us and a bunch of other cool people!
