So, since moving to "Eastern" Canada (Ontario) from the West Coast about 1 1/2 years ago, I look forward to this time of year, when the sugar maple festivals kicks off. Today, for the second year in a row (but this time with in-laws in tow), we once again attended the Bronte Creek Maple Festival. As per last year, we were guided through the historical processes by which maple syrup was made by hosts dressed in period costumes and then peeked inside the beautiful Victorian farmhouse on the property and bought some maple candy made fresh in one of the "barns." For the first time ever, I got to try Maple taffy made on ice, which resulted in a massively giggly, messy sugar rush (see last image)! Outfit deets for me: 1930s plaid hat and scarf, 1940s style overalls, navy peacoat I've had for so many years it can almost be considered vintage. Sometimes, I love being stereotypically Canadian, eh!
