Dry Lake - Madoc
After the craziness lately I needed a little weekend out of the city, so I booked this really cute Airbnb in a town called Madoc. Madoc is located maybe 2.5 hours depending on traffic outside of Toronto. It's a very secluded area surrounded by so much nature which was exactly what we were looking for.
Upon arrival at our Airbnb we totally fell in love, it was tucked down a dirt road surrounded by high forest trees. It was the perfect location to get some much-needed forest bathing. This cute little log cabin was all open concept and I loved all the little touches to decorate the place. I can see this place being super cozy in the wintertime while having a little fire. On the property, they also have the cutest family of chickens.
The following day I decided to check out a lake that the Airbnb host suggested called Dry Lake in Tweed Ontario. The photos online really don't do it justice for how unique the spot it is. The lake has formed on top of white clay so the water is crystal clear and super warm. As you go in, there are small ledges where the clay has formed in different shapes, you almost feel like it's from outer space. I would have loved to have visited this spot in the summer when the weather was a bit warmer so I could go for a proper swim. Though that didn't stop me from getting into the water for some photos haha.
After exploring the lakes I made out way to the largest underground cave system in Ontario Called Tyendinaga, in Belleville Ontario. It was really difficult to get some good shots as the lighting was very dark but if you ever find yourself in the area, I highly suggest going on a tour it was pretty mindblowing. The tour guide and owner taught me so much about caves that I never knew before, they were awesome.
