Ottawa River, ON

My watermark is the Ottawa River.

Growing up, I lived in a house that was right on the water, so every day after school I would go down to the shore and look for frogs, look at clams, add to my rock collection... I was there pretty often. In the summer, I would kayak, canoe, swim with my friends and family, which led to the formation of a ton of happy memories that I still treasure to this day. My first summer job was actually working as a lifeguard on one of the beaches in the Ottawa River. Now it has still become a very special place to me. I go to the Ottawa River to just think, to meditate, to think about life, to just kinda chill!
