We're At The Cottage!
Being at the cottage is huge in Canada. It's the place to let go of everything that has been weighing you down, have a bit of fun and unwind from the stress of daily life.
Baroness von Sketch Show (great show BTW) did a sketch that sums up the experience rather nicely.
During the weekdays if I'm not fighting swimmers itch and the lake is calm, I grab a camera, jump in the kayak and go for a paddle around the lakes. The lakes are quieter during the weekdays as most people head back to the city Sunday night.
It's the time for me to just be. No set agenda. No pressures. Just me and nature—which is always trying to kill me.
Spending time at the cottage makes you live life in the slow lane. You slow down and marvel at what is in front of you and realize, the world is going to be alright.
