I haven’t been to Rock Lake in Algonquin Park (in Ontario) for MANY years now, so when my parents asked if I wanted to come along for a week around Labour Day, I saw my schedule was clear and jumped at the chance.

It was nice to relax (no cell service) and have a bit more summer, as it was raining and chilly in Vancouver when I left.

We were treated to spectacular sunsets almost every night, I went kayaking, hiking, boating around the lake, fishing, and got to hang with Dexter.

I took that photo of him on the same dog beach I did when he was a puppy exactly 6 years ago. I need to dig that one up and put them side by side. He’s still adorable.
