Summer Bucket List…so far

I guess now that it is September summer is over. Not technically but close enough. The leaves are changing and the days are getting shorter. Time to kiss the lazy days of summer a fond farewell. Before we moved to Borden I created a summer bucket llist for us. We did not get everything done on our list but we had fun. And that is the main thing. Next year we will tick some more things off of the list.

I found moving from my beloved friends  difficult. This list ensured that I got out and about instead of sitting at home mopping. From now on whenever we move I am making sure I have a list of places to explore and things to do at our new home.

The first check on out list was Weber Burgers. It was our lunch stop on the day we left Petawawa and moved to Borden. It was AMAZING!!! The picnic area was perfect. Burgers, friendly people and their dogs. There are no pictures. My camera was packed in the car, squeezed in between a box of hair supplies and the cooler.

We have made friends. Played board games. Had regular date nights. Explored the small towns in the area.

We explored the 400 Market. I may be obsessed with that place. We have been there twice so far. Both times I came home with a fab photography purchase. Stay tuned for that on a future journal entry.




We explored the Barrie waterfront and had ice cream. Not quite a picnic in the park but close enough.





We explored the Elmvale Zoo. Before we turned into the car park I was already screaming. ” I SEE CAMELS. I SEE ZEBRAS.”  My favourite part. The giraffes. These majestic giants ate from my hand. So gentle. And with the softest tongues. I want a zoo with GIRAFFES.












We visited Wasaga Beach. It was not what I expected. The sand was compacted…almost like a road. No dunes. No marram grass. I am a beach snob. There I said it. It is tough for any beach to compete fter living on an island with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.




Make a list of adventures and get out there. Life is too short not to make the most of it.
