 Dolphin Discovery, Cozumel Mexico

Dolphin Discovery, Cozumel, Mexico. April 2014

One of my fondest memories and achieved bucket list items to date was swimming with dolphins — which I got to do two years ago in Cozumel, Mexico.  This was with the Dolphin Discovery company.  Upon arriving at the dolphin lagoon, I saw this beautiful frame of dolphins revealing the dolphin swims available there.   Continue reading

Fran’s Restaurant

Fran’s Restaurant located at 200 Victoria Street in Toronto

I’ve been to Fran’s Restaurant before, also for dinner right before a musical performance since Fran’s is located right across from Massey Hall and a very short walking distance from the Ed Mirvish Theatre.  It had been several years since I had last been there though so I was eager to return and dine here again.🙂   Continue reading

Cho Sun Ok

 Cho Sun Ok cold noodles

Cho Sun Ok located at 7353 Yonge Street in Thornhill

The first time I dined at Cho Sun Ok was many, many years ago.  This was before they had renovated and still had an open space restaurant (and also before this blog existed!).  During that first visit, I had tried their cold noodles (which were very well known at Cho Sun Ok and recommended to me by a friend) and I had found the dish to be quite ordinary and it didn’t really appeal to me.  Fast forward to today though, I really wanted to return back to Cho Sun Ok to try these cold noodles again to refresh my impression of the restaurant.   Continue reading

The Winery Experience at Trius Winery at Hillebrand

Trius Winery at Hillebrand

Trius Winery at Hillebrand located at 1249 Niagara Stone Road in Niagara-on-the-Lake

I had the pleasure to be invited to dine at Trius Winery at Hillebrand this past Friday night!  I believe I’ve been to Trius Winery before for a wine tasting tour but I’m not positive.  Either way, we arrived at Trius Winery just after 7 p.m. and the sun was beaming in the south ready to set.  This gave a beautiful glow to the winery and restaurant where the dining experience would be held.  It was so beautiful out and we could see the grapevines beyond the field too.   Continue reading
