So about a month ago my friend emails me to ask if I want to go dog sledding on Easter weekend. At first I was kind of surprised, since I don't look like your typical outdoorsy dog sledder... but I figured, why not? I wanted to do more travelling and even if Haliburton is only 3 hours from Toronto, this is a good way to start! Man, was it ever fun! I'm so glad my friend, Colleen convinced me to go, because it was such a great experience.
So we left Friday afternoon and headed up to the Delta Pinestone Resort, so it would be less off a rush to head to the trails in the morning. The resort was really nice.
For dinner on Friday night we went to this small, local diner called Haliburton Family Restaurant. We were all starving from the long drive up, so Colleen and I ordered about 4 plates of appetizers to split--I now know why they always say never shop when you're hungry. We tried to forced ourselves to finish all the Buffalo chicken wings, poutine, chicken fingers and nachos. It's a good think Colleen's dad and friend were there to help us out with that. :D The food was alright... not as "home made" as I thought it would be, but nonetheless still sufficient. Our waitress was really friendly. A nice 'country' atmosphere.
We woke up at about 7am. Went down to Heatherwood, the resorts' restaurant, for a yummy breakfast. I ordered the eggs Benedict, so did Colleen, her dad got oatmeal and his friend got the 'Canadian Breakfast'. Breakfast was very tasty and filling. We scooted back to our rooms to pack and head out for the 30 minute drive to Winterdance Dog Sledding Tours. We were running a bit late, and to top it off 15 minutes after taking a wrong turn, we realized we were going the wrong way (when the numbers started getting smaller), so we had to turn around and double back. Just to let you know these country roads are very bumpy, and we were driving fairly fast in order to make it to the site on time... Colleen and I should've ordered the oatmeal.
