Part of what made our trip to Collingwood extra relaxing was that we made a point of stopping to smell the roses, or in spring in Ontario stopping to take in the beauty of the trilliums. We got a tip about a loop of the Bruce Trail we should check out while we were in the area so after a nice slow wake up one morning we packed up some muffins, filled our water bottles, donned our wide brim hats, and headed out for our hike.
It was such a gorgeous morning! Wandering through the woods in this beautiful spring weather is such a simple way to relax. And we were lucky enough to see the trilliums in bloom – which is an amazing feat for these plants since it takes them about seven years to flower, pretty crazy huh?
What are your favourite simple ways to relax? Do you like to head out for a nature walk? Poke around in your garden? Or do you prefer to cozy up to a good book?
