It has been quite some time now since I have decided that my life’s ambition is to be a Disney Princess and this summer things have been falling into place to support such a statement.
First of all, all the animals that are flocking around me. Not just the domestic ones that I see on a daily basis at work, but also the following:
- a family of deer at work
- fox in the bushes at work
- bunnies hopping merrily around me while I walk home from work
- birds singing outside my window at 4:30 in the morning to wake me from my slumber (this one I can live without if I’m being 100% honest)
- a skunk on my walk to track and field last week which didn’t spray me and kind of posed for pictures
- being followed, but never attacked, by various geese around York University (for those who know geese, this can be a true sign of Disney Princess protection!)
- a racoon living outside my door which scared me half to death a few nights ago
Add in the fact that I’m basically just Mary Poppins (practically perfect in every way 😉 ) and my sometimes uncontrollable urge to just burst into song in the middle of a sentence, the facts are just adding up! I’m not saying that I am a Disney Princess, but there’s the proof in black and white! So far.
And then – oooo dear friends it just got a little bit better! THEN, last night, I was online doing some mundane things before bed and I came across this!
A CASTLE!!!! It’s this theme park less than two hours from Toronto! Sweet baby Jesus, I gasped at my laptop and started doing all the research I could. You can visit the website here.
And I have decided that I need to go. Not just like want to, but need to. This will be my summer road trip. Bff-R is invited of course, because what’s a summer road trip without your best friend?!
You can check it out yourself but there are dragons and knights and castles and cute little houses and a suspension bridge and an “enchanted walking trail” and a dungeon and an armoury museum.
Escape rooms too!! But I’m not sure I would want to do one. Do you think they would let me throw an axe or something?
Do you think they would let me throw an axe or something? Ever since Le Brother did his “axe throwing” party for his work and didn’t die, I’ve wanted to try that too (but he was uncommonly unsassy these last few days so I don’t really have any real proof of life…)
Goodness, I am so excited about this!! And it’s only five dollars to get in and do the regular stuff!? All up near Georgian Bay?! I could probably fit it in to go there in the morning, swing around to Cyprus for a great hike and a swim and then make it all back home before collapsing from exhaustion. And if I was at Cyprus, that’s only another 25 minutes from Tobermory… No – one destination per day is probably best!
Don’t worry – I will most definitely be taking my camera along and will be showering you with all the pictures I can bare to post….if I don’t decide to just accept my Disney Princess status while I’m there and just move into the castle right then.
