So it's that time of the year that I look forward to the most. Not only is it summertime where the flowers are in full bloom, the days are longer, and I don't feel guilty constantly eating ice cream, but it is also time to head to the lake.
Shawnigan Lake has been my little retreat every summer since I was born. My mom's father bought it when she was just ten years old. After he passed away 2 years later, my Nana had the option of selling the cabin or keeping it. She decided to keep it and drive up from Edmonton every summer and spend two weeks out of the year cleaning it and getting it ready for the next summer. I am so thankful she did what she did because I would not be who I am today without having shared so many memories there that I will never forget. So tomorrow is the day that we all pack into the car and head to the ferry terminal to start our journey to the best place on earth. I literally cannot wait.
Here are a few images that remind me of the lake...
