After one and half years of busy and stressful work schedule, somewhat difficult moments in personal life last month, I booked this much needed break for myself. I wasn’t into all-inclusive vacation before, but this time, I thought relaxing and sunbathing on the beach without worrying about planning my meals and cooking might be a great way to have that break.

During the Victoria Day long weeekend, I took my parents to visit Elora – Ontario’s most beautiful village. It did not disappoint us!
Once you drove into the downtown area, you would see painters in every corner. Unfortunately, the famous Elora Mill Hotel was doing exterior renovation though.

This happened a lot while my family was travelling around San Francisco, because of succulents, LOL. I am sorry if you found seeing a family of three shooting succulents in front of people’s house strange, because we came from Canada, succulents cannot be grown outdoor here, so we’ve never seen such huge ones in Toronto.
A gorgeous aeonium arboreum var. atropurpureum in front of a really nice house in the sea cliff area.
