Internetz, I have just returned from heaven on earth. I'm not even kidding.
About an hour north of Toronto is a lovely town called Cobourg. It's quaint, has some great restaurants, a gorgeous beach and marina, and fun little shops.
But it's also home of heaven on earth - the Victoria View B&B.
Irish Boy and I just had a romantic 3-day getaway there. It's, ahem, the 5th time we've been. Yes, we like it THAT much.
The freshly roasted coffee each morning is enough to make my toes curl with delight but then there are the breakfasts. Oh! The breakfasts! Even for those of us trying to be health conscious! One morning it was a feta and asparagus omelet with fresh greens topped with a homemade ginger orange dressing and sunflower seed toast. Are you dying? The fact they they use as many local and organic foods as possible makes me feel even more saintly.
Irish Boy and I enjoyed walks down by the marina to look at all of the boats (I wonder if we'd have one if we didn't spend all of our money on IF treatments?) and lovely dinners at local restaurants. We each splurged and had hot stone facials/massages - and I could've died it was so nice.
Now it's back to reality. But I can gaze longingly at the photos on the website and dream of going back again.
Honestly, if you are in the area and wanting a mini-getaway - or you're travelling up this way and want a place to stop for the night - let me know, I'll send you all the info you need to stay there. I'm not getting any compensation of any kind for saying all of this - I honestly just love this place so much that it must be shared!
But for now...back to reality!
