Well, it’s finally here: our summer vacation! Hubs’s family has a cottage on Lake of the Woods, Ontario, and each summer we get to enjoy time out here. It’s such a special place; you park your car, hop in a boat and head out to the island. If you need to hit Safeway you boat in and use a dock! Clearly the novelty has yet to wear off for me…
Hubs’ family on his father’s side is from Kenora originally, and they have a family island on this lake. We are usually here in the middle of the summer aligning with the rest of the family, and with all the kids it’s total madness. I always say its like a happy version of ‘Lord of the Flies’. It’s a total blast, but there is something really special about being out here at the end of the summer as well. It’s a nice, slow pace, which is exactly what we need after the incredibly busy summer we’ve had this year.
Honestly, can you believe it’s already the end of August? Not cool. Our vacation this week is all about soaking up the last days of summer and enjoying lake living: fishing, reading on the dock, saunas, night swims, yummy meals, wine spritzers and boat rides. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll even be able to get some colour on my pasty skin. A girl can dream. We’ve got some fun plans set for this week I can’t wait to share, but for now here is the gist!
