Hot Day Today

Perhaps sometimes I like to look at things from a different perspective. Last weekend, it was a great day at the Aurora Farmers' Market & Artisan Fair. If you haven't noticed I had my lens on the Lost Boyz Riding Club. Smoothly, almost gliding into the park, with a...
dinosaurs
By K. Taylor, Aurora ON.  Spending my days with dinosaurs and my evenings at the Royal Court. We’re only starting out, but already I’ve spent this summer with some pretty shady characters. I’ve developed a taste for plotting and intrigue; backstabbing and even a touch of regicide....

Family Tradition
The Aurora Farmers' Market & Artisan Fair at the Town Park has become a family tradition for us, and perhaps not just for us. We visit many times during the summer along with many people we know and don't know. Enjoy!
Canadian Tire
