Ontario, Canada Adventures #2: Fishing and Southerns

Fishing

This is pretty much what the entire rest of the week consisted of. But it was fun! Yes, I enjoyed being woke up at eight or earlier in the morning. I actually did enjoy fishing, though. I definitely am not as crazy about fishing as Hunter or Dad, and after the first two days of it, I opted for relaxing in the cabin and trying to get the internet to work.*

*You know what, I can live without the internet, so don't even go there people. I wrote a lot, and I read DISAPPOINTMENT WITH GOD. See, meaningful things. But you never know if something will work until you try every two minutes, right? Right?! I was just dedicated, okay...

I got woke up way too early. I don't even remember when. It was just too early. In the summertime, I don't get up until 10am+. But do people respect that? NO. Anyway, Hunter was already yapping about catching a Northern, and I was sick of hearing that word, so I called them Southerns. And Westerns. And Easterns. But Southerns are the most common. And I told him Northerns were extinct. He didn't believe me and became really annoyed. What are sisters for?

Hunter was also very fond of me speaking in a French accent. Did I mention how much I love French in the previous post about Canada? Well, I love French accents. LA CANADIONS!!!

I didn't want to miss our first day of fishing, though, so I got out of bed reluctantly. Off we went...

We started with three people fishing, and that turned out to be a disaster and very complicated since Dad is the only fishing expert and the only one who knows how to drive a boat well (sorry Mom; bless your heart for trying). Hunter got his line stuck in the prop. Finally we just used two, and that worked better. For the most part, it was very relaxing, and taking in all of the scenery was so much fun.

Mom wore a life jacket; I didn't. I'M A REBEL.

We went back to the cabin and ate lunch. Then I took a nap and was woke up from that too when we wanted to go back out.

This time we went to a lake that wasn't very far from our lodge. It was Mom and I's favorite.

Our lodge had a beach area, so we ventured off to check it out.

Then I went to bed, and nobody told me otherwise.

The next day we woke up, and it was pretty hazy.

We went to the nearby lake from the previous evening, and on the land we decided to make our own rock pile!

If I remember correctly, later that night everyone else went back out, and I stayed in the cabin to read. And fight with the internet. Good times. It ended up storming, and my family made it back just in time. Afterwards, there was a beautiful rainbow, which, sorry not sorry, that is a promise from God, not the other stuff our society is turning it into (Genesis 9:13).

We had fun family bonding over this game!! Especially when we played Monopoly!!!
