We offed to the Westin Trillium House resort in the Town of Blue Mountains this weekend to get away from it all. This resort is just outside of Collingwood, in Ontario’s ski country (off Georgian Bay). The runs at Blue were still open thanks to the dumping we received a week or so ago and there were plenty of keen skiiers and snowboarders taking an opportunity for a last run down the slopes for the season.
We had a lovely one bedroom suite with a mini kitchen and spent the weekend chilling in front of the fire, wandering the Village of Blue, reading (I’m onto Watchmen at the moment in preparation for seeing the film), some work (raspberry to that but necessary nonetheless), and movie watching (we knocked off another of the Extras series, Ghost in the Shell, and a miserable embarrassing flick called, Vapid Shallow Models Must Die [which, male nudity aside, must be avoided at all costs]).
On Saturday afternoon we headed over to the Village for a chicken wing fest at Wild Wings, which has – get this – 101 different styles of chicken wings! Is that heaven or what? Add to an order of wings a side of fries and gravy and deep fried dill pickles and into heaven you head.
