Elmwood Spa, Toronto

Gord and my tradition for birthdays is to take each other to a spa to celebrate.

Since Gord's birthday was Thursday, we went to the Elmwood Spa (Yonge/Dundas W) this afternoon.

First up were water therapies ... spending time in the pool and the hot tub.

Then we had an 80 minute couples massage.

My bed was by the fireplace.

There's Gord already to go!

Andre gave me a wicked massage ... he found so many places that were sore. Ouch! I'd never had an 80 minute massage (I'd had a 60 minute massage max) and it was heavenly.

Then we had a deluxe pedicure. Here we are with our legs wrapped with lotion and our feet wrapped with hot paraffin wax.

Needless to say, we were very relaxed!

I got my toes painted "Maya" (Gord named our car Maya when we got it in 2004).

I had to let my toes dry so we had a couple glasses of bubbly in the bar in our robes ....

I could have had a nap right then as I was so relaxed.

Definitely a relaxing fun afternoon!

What a great tradition! A few months ago I went to Stillwater - I was surprised I could manage to walk after 5 hours of r&r!

We've been to Stillwater ... it was nice. We like the Elmwood better because they have a pool and hot tub.
