Thornbury - A Winter Break

Scheduled a break in the middle of February hoping to enjoy snow and winter. But nature happens and the week turned out to be one of the warmest in the 2017 winter. Oh well - it was still a fun and memorable one. The break started with only me and my forever companion aka hubby then the Gonzales and Ocampo couples joined us later in the week.

Date : February 19-25
Stayed at : Royal Harbour Resort, Thornbury, Ontario (20 minutes from Collingwood)

A Thornbury sunrise.

Places we visited : Webwood Falls, Ingliss Falls and Walters Falls. Craigleith Provincial Park, towns of Meaford, Collingwood and Clarksburg. The Blue Mountains, Wasaga Beach.

A sampler of the roads we traversed.

Food Trips and Restaurants :
At Thornbury we tried Orchid Restaurant for breakfast where the pancakes were fluffy and food was reasonably priced and tasted homemade.
We had lunch at Bruce Mill Wine Bar and Kitchen where service was excellent and food was not too bad. 
A little snack at Thornbury Bakery Cafe. The sandwiches were huge and I got some baked products which were sold at 50% off 30  minutes before closing (4 pm).

In Collingwood we did not miss Heavenly Cafe with its delectable sweets.
Lunch at Lakeside Resort and Grill. A really good place for great food, service and view.Just right for some friends bonding before we parted.
We also tried PIE Wood Fired Pizza. On the outside the place looked so quiet but inside it was a very busy place. The pizza was okay but did not really impress.

Also visited : Country Affairs Candles (Meaford)  - huge inventory of candles and country arts, Grandma Lambes (Meaford) for apples, pies and the ever so yummy bread fruit. Ice cream at Grandma's Beach Treats (Wasaga). The Collingwood Museum right at the heart of Collingwood.

Duncan's Cafe in Collingwood is now a new favorite place not only for the art lined walls 
but also for the quesadilla and veggie/pork rolls.

Movies watched while in the resort : Red 2 (Bruce Willis, all star cast), Unanswered Prayers, The story of Adele H. (Isabelle Adjani), Les Miserables (Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman), One Day (Anne Hathaway, Jim Sturgess).

Places for next time : Thornbury's Cheese Gallery, Ashanti Cafe, The Corner Cafe and Grill - all in Thornbury.
