quiet, peaceful, serene…

2014-8-24Ah, kids.  they’re always kicking soccer balls really hard at yah and throwing Frisbee’s at your face.

Yesterday, cultus lake was an interesting experience.  We usually go to maple bay, which is the beach furthest from the entrance to the park, which is usually the least populated even during the busy weekends.  …This was not the case yesterday.

It’s hard to relax and read a book when there are several different groups of children playing sports HARD a meter away from where your 8 month old daughter is sitting.  And!  and it’s not like we set up our picnic beside sports that were already going!  Nope, they looked at the ENTIRE open field and decided, “Next to that baby will be a good place to play sports”.  AND, they were all just young enough to not be able to control where the ball/frisbee/botche/anything were going.  RELAXING INDEED!

I guess this is how I turn into an old curmudgeon of a man.  I EMBRACE IT.  GET OFF MY LAWN.

Cultus Lake Beach Day!

2013-7-1So, summer hits chilliwack like a ton of bricks!  Seriously came out of nowhere, and it is very welcome to stay for as long as it likes!  Of course, seeing as it is CANADA DAY (woo) and this is a long weekend, I should of suspected that there would be a bit of a line up to get out to the lake…. But I didn’t suspect it, and I didn’t take any of the shortcuts, and it took us a half an hour to get there.  That’s really not that bad, considering when I lived in saskatchewan, it would take me two days of driving to get to cultus… so, you know.
Happy Canada day!  Hope you’re celebrating it in the traditional fashion… BBQ’s, Swimmin, Camping, and complaining about going back to work tomorrow!  😉
