Tobermory, Day 2 - Being one with nature

The weather in Tobermory is quite unpredictable. The second day of our trip consists of a 4 hour hike of the Bruce Peninsula National Park where the beauty of the place truly lies. I have never been hiking before. Although, the weather in the morning was cloudy, I expected it to warm up in the afternoon, hence the romper and bathing suit combo that I wore to go hiking. Yes I know who wears that to hike right? LOL. Well, the weather never got warm and the sun only showed itself periodically. Needless to say there was no swimming involve. Nevertheless, I truly enjoyed my first time hiking, and dare I say that I actually loved it. I never actually got tired, just famished at the end of it all. There were also public washrooms in a couple of places, they are the non-flush-able ones where you put some sort of wood shavings, aka, bulking agent after you do your thing.  It was not the best experience but I wasn't expecting any better, just glad that they were present.

This is so cute! I was surprised that there were actually a lot of Americans vacationing here judging by their license plate. These guys were from Pennsylvania. 

A few brave souls who took a dip in the water.

The Grotto.

Bf managed to make it down. I wish I went to, but I didn't exactly feel like climbing down with a DSLR in tow, especially without the reward of a swim afterwards. Maybe next time.
Nature is so beautiful. 

We hiked through rocks. It was tough and require a good balance. 
Stopping to enjoy the view.

Another stop. Same view, diffirent angle,  and just as beautiful.
We were famished at the end of the hike. Good food is a must. 

Mini burgers.

Bon appetit

Also, a very big thank you to Divina Joy for my second blog award.  How very sweet of you Divina, I am honoured and thankful.  Please check out her blog. I love reading her thoughts and insights. She is also very sweet.


  1. O_o this reminds me of lake tahoe, but it's not. because i said lake tahoe, just know that i think that the place looks absolutely gorgeous and i KNOW that the photos don't justify it's beauty, so if i think that the photos are pretty here, it's most likely to be breathtaking in real life.

    your first time hiking and you're in rompers? lol at you! but i think it's okay because i'm sure that it's an easy hike. the last time i went hiking, i had to climb rocks. i was the only one girl with a bunch of guys so omg ... you can just imagine how adventurous they were.
