Lifestyle Personal Posts Scenes from my Week

scenes from my weekend.

This weekend was a particularly good one as we headed north to go white water rafting. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture any pictures of our day due to my camera not enjoying the idea of water, but know that it was an amazing adventure and I highly recommend it to anyone who’s up for a little bit of a challenge. After watching YouTube videos before departing (bad idea), I was incredibly nervous. It ended up being a lot less scary than I was expecting and I really enjoyed the whole experience. After a whirlwind, high intensity Saturday surfing the rapids, we spent the rest of the weekend at our friends cottage nearby. We hung out on the dock, napped in a hammock, spent the afternoon floating on the lake and drank a little too much beer by the campfire. All in all, it was the perfect Canadian summer weekend.

      haha not interested in white water rafting? I only went because 18 of my friends were going and I didn’t want to feel left out. It ended up being so much fun!

    That lilo in the lake looks fantastic…especially for someone sweating her body weight off in the heat the past two days! It’s 30C here…can’t cope..can’t cope! :)

    There is really nothing like a Canadian weekend… Sadly, we’re pretty booked solid this summer but I do hope we make it up to the lakes just for a few days of pure relaxation. And wine.
