We took a few pictures around the resort so I thought I would post a blog today despite saying yesterday that I probably wouldn’t. The photos in today’s blog are all the same as on Flickr. Usually there are more photos on Flickr than the blog but today I just put them all on both sites.
We did nothing. Well, almost nothing. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner in the apartment, did the laundry, planned our dates and hotels in Ottawa and Quebec, and went for a walk after dinner, over to and all around the village. I also finished reading my book.
This is our ‘home’ until Friday: Studio Unit 216.

Blue Mountains Resort is set up like Whistler with nice themed buildings containing shops and restaurants surrounded by apartments and condos. Blue Mountains, also like Whistler, obviously has worked hard to attract summer visitors – and there are lots of them here.
You can rent canoes and paddle boats to sail in the big pond (which is an ice rink in winter), climb a climbing wall, play mini-golf on a course that rises up the hillside, choose between two climbing courses – one high and one low, or take a ‘bobsled’ ride. There is an open bandstand in the town square with live music and they host quite a few events summer and winter.

It was a beautiful evening for a walk around the village. The lighting and reflections were gorgeous.
One thought on “2014 Jul 7 – Day 18 – Blue Mountains Ski Resort”
Gotta love those water reflections! 🙂
