House peeping in Collingwood, Ontario
One final Canadian house-peeping post because I am heading home to Colorado this week.
These photos were taken in the city of Collingwood which is where my sister works in southern Ontario. You may recall a few posts back that I house-peeped with my sister in the Blue Mountains where she lives – very close to Collingwood actually.
You have to understand that my sister just does not share the same passion/obsession for houses as I do (she thinks I’m weird). I had to forcibly put her in the driver’s seat and demand that she tour me around since she knows Collingwood well and knows where all the big old Victorian homes are.
She drove a little fast and got a lot embarrassed at my activity and even said at one point: “This is creepy – people are going to think you are a stalker.”
Hey, either you get the House Crazy thing or you don’t (it’s not necessarily genetic).
But when the result is a collection of fantastic house photos that are drool-worthy - it is well worth the embarrassment (in my humble opinion).
So as you look at these magnificent historic homes in Collingwood, Ontario, just picture my younger sister slumping down in the driver’s seat trying to hide behind her sunglasses while a starry-eyed big sis leans out the window to get the money shots (probably with my tongue hanging out, by the way my sister acted).
I thought this house below looked like it had a face:
These pictures were all taken in the late evening which is prime house-peeping time because of the golden light and long shadows.
There are a lot of brick beauties in southern Ontario, as you can see. They seem to stand up well to the looooong cold winters.
Well that’s a wrap my friends.
This is my final house-peeping post from Canada – for this year! I’ll be back in the land of the midnight sun (and poutine and beaver tails) again next summer.
Now it’s time to migrate back to my Rocky Mountain home in Colorado!
