This weekend is the first long weekend of the summer in Canada, also known as Victoria Day, May Two-Four weekend, or the beginning of cottage season!
I come from a cottage family. Â People in my family have always owned cottages. Â Here’s one of my Grandpa’sÂ old slide scans ofÂ me and my dad at the cottage when I was a baby (note my awesome “Jennifer” hat):
The only thing I remember about summers as a kid is time spent at the cottage.Â Boat rides, waterskiing, jumping off “the rock” (our very creative name for a big rock on the side of the road), bonfires, corn on the cob, swimming… anyone else suddenly in the mood to jump in the car and drive to the cottage?Â Here are a few pictures from the cottage:
That’s one of the docks.Â This photo was taken from a public road, where people frequently stop their cars to take pictures.Â It’s also the best place to drink coffee and watch the sunrise.Â Or so I’ve heard (I’m more of a 9am coffee gal).
“The Rock.”Â Once a well-kept local secret, the rock has recently achieved popularity with vacationers.
Last but not least, what cottage experience would be complete without roasting marshmallows over a campfire?Â If you want to see more of my own cottage themed stock images, here is a gallery on Stocksy.
