Happy 150th Birthday Canada. Keep strong!
Travel to Canada
We were just in Canada for two and a half months, enjoying the summer. Summer in a Canadian lakeside cottage is one of Canada's cherished traditions.
This is the time when families enjoy kayaking, canoeing, water skiing, sailing and other water activities. Remember that in the winter many of these lakes freeze and these activities cannot be enjoyed. Boats go on storage and taken out again in the spring.
So, Summer is special as it is the time for the outdoors and Canada offers so much area for exploration.
Winter in Canada
Winter is special, too. In fact, Canada is a top winter destination. Get a chance to play some hockey.
There are many places to ski and snowboard as well as skate. The lakes in the cottage areas often get frozen during the winter months so people continue to go to their cottage to enjoy winter activities.
But for experiencing the wilderness, Canada is second to none.
Canada's wildlife is so fascinating. It is not hard to encounter them. Because they are protected, the national and provincial parks are full of them and, at times, they get bored there and wander off residential areas.
Here's a raccoon family that visits us regularly at the cottage, takes a branch and goes to sleep while keeping watch of the bird feeder.
For more on the raccoon experience, here's a good read: Living with Raccoons
