My older sister lives in Vancouver but this week she had to travel 2 hours to a place up in the mountains called Kamloops. This is the picture of the town from her hotel window. Unlike Vancouver it’s dry and dusty there.  I love the pictures she sends me over from time to time and love to share them (with…

This is one of my sisters photos from the CN Tower in Toronto, where they have snow at the moment in April! Mind you we were driving home from Tescos yesterday and it started hailing really heavy here in Cornwall. It was taken at sunset. I really love the atmosphere and blue colours in this photo. I hope you are…

Well this is the last Canadian #MySundayPhoto in my series of photo’s, I hope you have enjoyed looking at them.  The moment when we were on The Lady of the Mist boat heading close to Niagara Fall’s is a very hard to describe moment. It was scorching hot and wet and just took your breath away.  Rachel xx

Happy Canada Day!

5 years ago, my husband, sister and I were in Peterborough, Ontario celebrating Canada Day. It was an amazing experience to be involved with their celebrations. The whole town got together and put on various displays, with a carnival feel to it. The one thing that amazed me was that everywhere was closed! So absolutely everyone could get involved with…

While we were in Canada nearly 5 years ago, we came across a little pioneer village, that was free to enter. It made a lovely day out for us as there was lots of things to do and demonstrations to watch. This is one of my favourite photo’s of the quaint little wooden houses that were there. It was a…

Carrying on the Canada theme from last Sunday’s my photo here is another. This photo was taken as we were on the way to Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario. The sky was very dark, heavy and threatening, but we were lucky to escape the rain. A lot of the roads we travelled were very long and seemed never ending, not like Cornwall. It was…
