Everyone in the Water!

There’s nothing like a refreshing lake breeze on a hot summer’s day. Your youngest is busy building sandcastles, while his sister splashes around in the lake. On the agenda for the afternoon: a canoe trip on Wapizagonke Lake, or maybe even a hike along the Lac Étienne pathway. The little ones will sleep well tonight! Next time, maybe an introduction to camping?
