The Stillness of a Snowy Day in Oakville and Burlington Area, Ontario.
It's collecting on the garden door and turning the Burlington and Oakville regions of Ontario, Canada into a cosy, muffled world of whiteness again. Snow, glorious snow.
I've been home this week recovering from a nasty bug that I picked up well before Christmas. The past 4 weeks have seen a seemingly never ending cycle of thinking I am finally getting over it just to have it rear it's vicious head once more.
Monday I went to see the Doc as I was feeling worse than ever and I knew I needed help.
After 4 days of antibiotics, I'm feeling like myself once more and can make plans to return to those winter activities that I love.
The Burlington and Oakville area is home to many beautiful, groomed cross-country ski trails for those adventurous souls who love to take winter's hand and dance wildly in it's arms, taking in all that it has to offer.
I like to get out and hike on the many trails that meander through the Halton Conservation Area parks and in winter I can be found gliding along on skis enjoying the peacefulness of the wintery landscapes.
Having grown up a northerner, I don't let winter get me down.
In my family we learned to skate before we had even mastered walking. There are many beautiful areas to skate in the Burlington and Oakville areas.
My brother and his family have a penchant for skating on the outdoor skating rink at Bronte Creek Provincial Park, the breathtaking natural area that divides Oakville and Burlington. No matter how cold it is, he and Shanine and the kids don their skates and wooly hats and head out as often as they can and always come home rosy cheeked, singing and laughing.
No matter what your favourite winter activity might be, the Burlington and Oakville area has you covered.
Winter, glorious winter. I say, bring it on!
