A walk in the woods

Hasn’t the weather been glorious? Makes you want to count your blessings, doesn’t it?

Forest walk

Secret messages in nature

Cutest shrooms in the world! #nofilter

Wow. I hope everyone is outside today! #ottawa

Post-hike bath and rub down is The Best Thing Ever.

The colours are breathtaking this time of year in Ontario. Awesome. :) Lovely pictures to remind us of this wonderful season and hopefully help us get through the inevitable gloom and wet and cold that is coming.

great photos – love the mushroom one especially – I think I’m benefiting a bit from the “forest bathing” even from my computer screen! : )

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
