Top 5 reasons to carry the Ontario’s West Coast Vacation Guide in your car!

10 May

2011 HURON COUNTY VACATION GUIDEI’m sure many of you have been wondering why I haven’t posting… well there isn’t one reason in particular, but I have been getting ready for the 2011 season. We had the brochure swap last week and were preparing the 2011 Ontario’s West Coast Vacation Guide and Cycling guide, along with the www.visithuron.ca website, 2011 Taste of Huron and Best Host, West Coast events, along with consumer shows and more. I’m sure you’ll notice that this site is filled with amazing Huron County adventures, food and experiences, so I thought I should post some info about the Ontario’s West Coast Vacation Guide. I thought I would start with a top 5:

1. Every tourism business is Huron County is in it.

2. It is filled with information about fun things to do.

3. There are maps for Cross Country Skiing and Hiking Trails, Natural Areas, Beaches and roads.

4. If the internet goes down you will be able to find what you need!

5. Everybody is doing it.

So if you are looking to vacation on Ontario’s West Coast this summer get your 2011 guide. There are many ways to do this:

1. Pick one up at a local information centre

2. Email us – tourism@huroncounty.ca

3. Call us – 519-524-8394 ext. 239

4. Download it at: http://www.ontarioswestcoast.ca/?page_id=250

Remembering: The beach in 2010

5 May

So the weather of spring 2011 has not been the greatest so far… So I thought I would post a story of the beach and campfires in the summer of 2010 to remind everyone of what is soon to come!

My friend Shawna called me up in June and said that her and her daughter Hilary wanted to come up to my house and go to the beach and camp out. We decided on a weekend in July. Hilary and Shawna got here around 2pm on a sunny Saturday afternoon, we immediately headed to the beach in Port Albert. It was almost 30 degrees and the sun was shining. We set up our towels and a shade umbrella and ran into the water. Was it ever refreshing! The three of us played mermaid games in the water and watched as boats went by further out. Then we played in the sand for a bit, went back in the water and cleaned the sand off and headed back to my house for a barbecue, campfire and of course to set up the tent! After setting up the tent we sat by the campfire, made s’mores and played with sparklers.

A Girls Getaway Photo Shoot

20 Mar

This week was a catch up week and I needed a “Girls Getaway” photo for an ad. Kaylie and I had planned a meeting in Bayfield, so I invited Brittany Fry and Monica Walker-Bolton to come with me. I don’t know how many times a month I am looking for models for photo shoots, but this time everything worked out perfectly! We ended up finding another friend while in Bayfield, so it made for a great day and perfect photo shoot!

If you are interested in modeling or being in out photo shoots, leave a comment below!

Check out some of the photos below:

We’re Up and Running!

3 Mar

We are so excited to start posting on our new blog! We love to travel and try new things and that is what we are going to chat to you about! We are the travel divas for Ontario, If you want to take a vacation, have a beach day, explore the best food and agriculture around or even just wine and dine we’ll find it on Ontario’s West Coast, your countryside and coastline!

Kaylie’s plans are to tour Huron County from now until the end of the summer. She has been working in the service industry and hasn’t had many opportunities to have beach days, go to the theatre or try all of the local fare.

Jenna plans to post as many of her wonderful Huron experiences that she can.
