Elora Studio Tour

I spent Saturday in the beautiful town of Elora for their annual Studio Tours.  It was a gorgeous Fall day and the drive up from Toronto was wonderful.  The city has lots to offer but sometimes it's nice to leave it behind and head out into the country.  Some of the leaves are beginning to turn but I'm sure it'll be far more spectacular in a few more weeks.

The town of Elora sits on the Irvine river.  The old mill (which has been converted into a hotel) is currently undergoing a refurbishment and much of the original town still stands and is filled with great shops, galleries and cafes.  I picked up a small piece of pottery from one of the local artisans and had lunch overlooking the river.  It is a great little town full of surprises and certainly worth the drive.
