Hola gorgeous people! As the last days of summer wind down I can’t help but look back with appreciation for such a lovely season. The weather is getting colder now but believe it or not the sun rays here can be quite strong throughout the year and yes, even in the winter months.
This post features some of the amazing sunglasses. We took these photos in beautiful town of Penentanguishene, Ontario.
Penetanguishene is located in Simcoe County on the Southern part of Georgian Bay. The name “Penetanguishene” comes from the Abenaki tribe meaning “ Land of the white rolling sands”. In 1793 John Graves Simcoe (the first liutenant governor of Canada) saw the potential of the area as a naval base to protect Upper Canada. It is a bilingual community where both English and French are spoken. There are roughly 9600 residents in this town. It is quite a picturesque place with a warm and charming small town feel. Tourism is a major part of the economy and the big draw is that it is located by the Georgian bay. There are over 70 hectares of Waterfront Trails and Inland Parks. There are also lots of natural and cultural heritage attractions as well as seasonal festivals. In the winter the activities of snowmobiling and Ice Fishing are quite popular. The town dock where we took some of these photos has a full service Marina and launch dock for boaters.
Saint Anne’s church is another place we stopped by to take some photos. The church was built between 1886 and 1902 and is constructed of limestone. It is one of the two historic churches in the area.
First up are these beautiful Sunglasses by Chanel. I love the stylish frames and the circular shape just make me feel as glamorous as a Hollywood star! We made a stop at the Town dock to get some photos and we did so in perfect timing as it was just nearing golden hour and so the photos turned out quite lovely!
The next few photos were taken just outside the historic Saint Anne’s Church.
These glasses are by far one of the most unique that I have come across. The are something out of a Matrix movie and have a futuristic feel about them. I love the geometrical shape and the fast that you get a little protection for the side of your face as well.
Some more photos from the Marina! There were just so many nice ones!
Here is Karimah who is the photographer for my blog.
Here is Lais. She works as a project coordinator at my property development firm KMD Group!
After the Marina visit we headed to see more of the town and came across this stunning building. Apparently it is a former hotel known as the Commodore. Word has it that it was sold to a Toronto based entrepreneur who plans to turn the building into a Parisian Style Hotel! Well I have to say I quite liked this building as a backdrop for photos!
I met some friendly locals in the middle of my photoshoot who asked if they could be in the pictures.
My last (but definitely not least) featured sunglass is this beautiful Ferragamo creation! I truly love the colour and it is just so much fun to sport!
Okay everyone this brings me to the end of this blog post! I hope you enjoyed looking through the photos and are inspired by the eyewear styles! I hope you also keep Penetanguishene in mind for a future visit! It is a town that is just full of small town charm! Until the next time have a great one! Love and light always!
