Last month, my family went to visit Ottawa, with a stop over at Prince Edward County Lavender field. The lovely boutique, heavenly scent, and beautiful lavender, with a cup of coffee and a sandwich under the tree, it couldn’t be any more relaxing! If you ever go to eastern Canada in July, it’s a nice break over there.
As you may know, it’s Canada’s 150th birthday this year, and Parks Canada decided to issue this Discovery Pass for all Canada’s national parks and historic sites in 2017. I ordered the pass, and visited my first national park in May: Point Pelee National Park in Leamington, Ontario.

I booked a one bedroom suite in the Richmond district on Airbnb, 5 mins walk to Golden Gate Park. Rental car was booked on the 3rd day because we were heading to Monterey and Hwy 1.
