As I mentioned in my last post, Zach and I headed to Schomberg, Ontario to spend a night in a cabin for a work project. It was a very short lived trip, but a fun trip no less. When we arrived on the property a friendly woman, Emma (and her flippin’ awesome border collie Cree who goes wild whenever a car starts up and loves running all over their property), greeted us at her home and brought us down to the cabin on her family owned farm land. They had built 3 cabins on the land, all a considerable distance from eachother, to rent out on Airbnb. The cabins have no running water or electricity, only solar powered lighting and heating from the fireplace, and a pond directly in front of it, now frozen over making the perfect skating rink (had we brought skates). The cabin was quaint and secluded – you could hear the coyotes howling come nightfall – and absolutely perfect for a wintry getaway. Once we settled in we got straight to photo taking as there was only a few hours of viable light left and that was pretty well the main reason we were there (Zach is a photographer by profession, and a flippin’ talented one at that). The rest of the evening was spent getting food in the town (oops, we brought no food with us), playing scrabble, warming my cold toes by the fire, worrying a coyote would steal Gus at night while he was peeing and watching Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix on a laptop (we are re-watching all the movies). In the morning we rose, packed our things and headed back to real life. Like I said, very short lived, but it was great and being in a place like that always makes me wonder if that is the sort of spot I will end up when I am older. I was going to split this into two posts because there are so many photos, but personally, I don’t mind when a post is picture heavy, so hopefully you don’t either.
*If you want to visit this place, you can find it here. Btw, this is not a sponsored post, I just really enjoyed our stay and the owners (and Cree). Also, if you have concerns about Gus being up so high on the wooden beam – he was up there only for a second for a photo, Zach was holding him the whole time, and he was in no way distressed. He is very easy going and very loved.
