Living at the Rink

We've had a lot of hockey the past few weeks.  I think about all the arenas we've been in over the years and I realize that travelling to all these rinks has given us the opportunity to see places we'd never otherwise visit.  Big cities, small farming communities and cookie-cutter suburbs.  Recreation complexes with state of the art facilities and old barn style rinks.  We know so many cities and towns just by the arenas we've been to.


One of our most recent games took us to the village of Nobleton.  You'd never know we were less than half an hour from Toronto.  Not long after we got off the highway we were surrounded by beautiful farmland and forests.... rolling hills as far as the eye could see, interesting barns and gorgeous estate homes... and more horse farms than I could count, not to mention the feed mill, century homes and harness shop!


There were so many photo opportunities that I couldn't take as I was driving.  Like these:

Is this a great sign or what?
