Collingwood is a cozy town tucked up along the shores of Georgian Bay. An easy day trip from Toronto, there's plenty to do all year round. In winter there's the skiing of course - Blue Mountain and other resorts attract skiers and snowboarders from near and far. But there are many other activities as well - snow tubing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, caving and much more.
The Sunday of our visit was grey and overcast. We didn't have a plan - well, the plan was to explore. There was to be no skiing this time. Starting out with coffee at the Ashanti Coffee Cafe in Thornbury, we stopped in Craigleith to view the turquoise waters of Georgian Bay and then drove to the top of the Blue Mountains to view the city from above. Later we explored the area around the old grain terminals and Millennium Park and ended the day with dinner nearby.
