A journal entry from: Summer at Home

one of my favourite places in the WORLD is lake cowichan - its where all my childhood summers were spent, my fondest memories made, and where some of life's most important lessons were learned. as soon as i got home to bc, i called up my friend naomi, and we jumped in my brother's truck and the three of us headed down to cowichan for the day. we visited our close friends (who have become my extended family over the years) at their home on the lake. it's truly paradise.

with beer in the cooler and gas in the tank, we loaded up the boat with all the essential gear for a sunny afternoon on the water, and headed out into the middle of the lake. kyle was first up for wake surfing, and next up was me. even nathan tied up garbage bags around his cast and had a ride.

there is nothing better for me than the feeling of being underwater in that lake. i feel at home when i am floating out there in the middle of the water. i learned to water ski on that lake. i spent the best summers of my life behind a boat on that lake. it was so good to be home.
