Isn’t that beautiful? It is one of the top 10 favourite photos I have ever taken! Reminiscing about our bi-annual MINI club cruise to the winding twisty roads of Muskoka/Bala region. This area, known as “cottage country” to city dwellers down south, is home to some beautiful twisties that show off the handling skills of our amazing MINIs.
Here are a couple gorgeous shots I took at last year’s Rattler cruise:

Looking forward to a great day with the MINIs on October 20!! We also have a MINIs on the Escarpment cruise planned for the day before… decisions, decisions!
I am now finished exams for a little while so I can start to breathe and work through uploading the rest of the pictures from my latest MINI adventures.
Last Sunday, October 18, 66 MINIs from the Southern Ontario MINI Club headed north for our favourite route that we’ve nicknamed the “Rattler”. We go twice a year, in the spring at the end of April, and the Sunday of the Bala Cranberry Festival in the fall (October). Last year we had 56 MINIs turn-out for this event, and it was the largest SOMC gathering at the time. Well, our count of 66 tops that! We also had a big turnout from the staff at MINI Durham, which was nice to see a BMW sales associate having a blast in a JCW on the twisties
Here is a video, uploaded by Fei, which shows our event last year (click on his related videos to see part 2 of this):
After our cruise, we ended up at a baseball diamond for a semi-circle group picture by our resident SOMC photographer, Duncan. I haven’t uploaded my pictures from the day yet, but these were taken by Adam (Sideways) and kindly used with permission:
