    Lake Muskoka, ON - Sophia Bell

My Watermark is Lake Muskoka, Ontario.

When I was little and was first introduced to my stepdad, he brought me and my mom to his cottage which his family has had for years; his mother’s grave is on a rock near the water and her ashes were thrown into the lake. I was taught how to swim there and he proposed to my mom while on a canoe in the water. That lake and that place genuinely means the world to me and my family.
