i used to live here.

both literally and figuratively. my house in sundridge, ontario was about 50 metres away from this tiny public but still private beach and i spent most of my 5 summers up north in this very spot.

i know i’ve mentioned this before, but lake bernard’s only claim to fame is that it is the largest island-free lake in north america. other than that, it has an insanely far out drop off point so you are basically waist deep until maybe 50 metres out and then it just gets really deep in a hurry.

i was lucky enough to visit my old stomping swimming grounds last month and i have to say the lake is just as beautiful as i remember it. i could definitely buy a cottage on lake bernard someday just to make the cipher complete.

this weather reminds me way too much of costa rica, except we don’t have an ocean to cool off in.

i’m not sure if i even like this carving to be honest, but the day that i saw it was one that i’ll never forget so posting this pic still gives me a good feeling regardless.
