For those of you that follow me on Instagram you will have already seen me trying on this dress at Anthropologie. It was on super sale and even though I was supposedly on a “spending freeze” challenge with Alice, she told me she had already caved after a mere…what? 10 days? So she gave me the green light to simply “buy it or walk away!”
You can see that it didn’t take too much persuading to get me to walk out of the store with it.
I wore this on our little getaway to discover some of Ontario’s west coast. We just got back yesterday. Thus my lack of blogging lately.
I wore this dress to the Gaol, where the second last public hanging in Canada took place in 1869.
It has pockets, is fully lined and 100% cotton, basically the perfect dress to wear to jail.
Back when this jail was constructed profanity and unladylike behaviour could get you thrown in. Think of how many of us would be behind bars right now.
Goderich is a picturesque little town on the shores of Lake Huron with a rich history and the most delicious donuts I’ve ever tasted.
I had my hair in braids for our hike and someone wanted to know if I was Anne (of Green Gables fame). Ha! I’ll take that as a compliment.
Goderich is home to the largest rock salt mines in the world. Do you use Sifto Salt? That is where it comes from.
A wicked storm blew in the last night we were there. We sat and watched it from our patio while drinking some wine.
In 2011 Goderich was devastated by a tornado that ripped through the town, killing one person and injuring 37, causing 100 million dollars in damage.
Apparently there were some sightings of a tornado over lake Huron the night we were there.
Have you ever witnessed a tornado?
