Watermark by Samarie Lumsden

The first time I went canoeing and portaging was on Canisbay in Algonquin Park. The silence and serenity was unbelievable. There was a loon pair that inhabited the lake and their calls could be heard across the lake. We did not manage to catch any fish but it was great trying.

Family, fun, memories. [My] 5 year old said, "the cottage brings me so much joy".
