Canada Day!!

HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!

Let me start off by saying that I am not Canadian, but most days I wish I were!

To me Canada is like a second home. Every summer since I was born my family would go up to these little old rustic cottages in Kingston, Ontario. We went the same time in July every single summer so everyone there become like family to us.

I’m not an outdoors kind of girl, but I would make an exception just for Canada! The air is just so fresh and gives you such a relaxed feeling. Maybe it’s just me, but I also think that everything taste better in Canada. Mind you, we would bring food from home to cook while we were up there, but it never tasted the same when we ate it at home!

I would spend a week enjoying catching frogs, fishing (aka falling asleep on the boat), boogie boarding, having water balloon fights, fish fries, playing volleyball, reading under a nice tree, and going into the town of West Point.

At night everyone would get together with their wine, pepperoni, cheese, and crackers and play cards and listen to the sounds of the frogs and the lake hitting off the docks.

Canada felt like a whole different world to me. I never had any bad memories there and looking back I wish I got a chance to enjoy it a little more. My family is big into fishing so once the fishing got bad where we would go and my grandparents got too old to go, we stopped going. There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t miss it to the point where I often think about visiting or one day trying to move there. A big part of my heart will always be left in Canada.

So, if you have never been to any part of Canada, I would recommend it! No matter what part of Canada you visit, I’m sure it will be a trip that you never forget!
