Retreat on Manitoulin Island in Ontario

In the 1930s my dad's grandpa bought a cabin on Manitoulin Island in Ontario, Canada. Manitoulin Island, located in the middle of Lake Huron (one of the Great Lakes), is the world’s largest freshwater island. Before moving to Alaska, my family and I lived in Wisconsin, and every summer we would embark on the 14-hour drive to the cabin and unwind for a week or two. There I would build forts, swim in the lake, and capture minnows, crawdads, and leeches (yuck, I know). I always had such a blast!

 

When we moved to Alaska, however, it was much harder to visit the cabin. About 10 years went by before I returned in 2013. So this past May, when my mom told me she was planning on going to the cabin this summer, I jumped at the opportunity to go too. Wouldn’t it be great if I met up with my best friend Megan and we went to the cabin together? And that’s exactly what we did.

 

A week after my birthday, I flew into Detroit, Michigan (about a 4-hour flight from Seattle) where I met up with Megan who flew in from Denver. We picked up our rental car, sweating in the 80-degree heat and 100% humidity, and started our drive to Canada. After 5 hours of driving, a 2-hour choppy ferry ride, and 30 more minutes of driving on the island while fighting a Dramamine-induced fog, we made it to my family’s rustic cabin. It felt so good to be there, with all of the familiar sights and smells.

 

Later that afternoon Megan and I went down to the crystal-clear lake and walked along the limestone rocks that line the shore. We kept our eyes peeled for leeches, but didn’t see any (thank goodness). The warm White Crow linen and cotton blend button-down shirt and DL1961 skinny jeans were the perfect items to wear on that chilly and cloudy day (and is the perfect outfit for most days back home in Southeast Alaska).

The first few days at the cabin were cloudy and rainy, so we made ourselves some tea, got the woodstove going, and decided to re-read the “Harry Potter” books. It was already becoming the perfect vacation! Then the sun came out, and my Southeast Alaskan-self was stoked to finally be getting some Vitamin D. Over the next few days we drove to one of the best sandy beaches on the island, went on a beautiful 5-mile hike up to some bluffs, and relaxed at the cabin, soaking up the sunshine.

 

One of my favorite evenings on our trip was when we had a small fire down by the lake and made S’mores. Megan and I took turns roasting marshmallows (concentrating intently on not burning them; it’s very serious business) and enjoyed the pink sunset. I was plenty warm in my cozy Ampersand Avenue double hoodie, listening to the crackling fire. We were definitely settling in to the quiet, cabin life on Manitoulin.

 

Before we knew it, our week at the cabin was coming to an end. So long to the Tim Horton’s French press coffee in the mornings, our intermittent reading of “Harry Potter,” our explorations around the island, and curling up with blankets and hot tea in the evenings. This trip not only made me reconnect with an important place from my childhood, but it also made me reset, bringing some fresh energy back home with me. It makes me think of a quote from Tom Stoppard, “If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older.” Sometimes we all need to revisit those places that make you feel like a kid again. What places have that effect on you?

Hello everyone my names are ALEX JACKSON from the UK, I want to use this golden medium to appreciate Doctor Abdul a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when he ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago). He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I received a text from my ex saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such a thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that wants to contact a spell caster should happily contact Doctor Abdul now on this email address.doctorabdulspellcaster@gmail.com or message him through his Whatsapp +2348108728256

BITCOIN LOST OR STOLEN LOST RECOVERY MASTERS TELLS YOU HOW TO GET IT BACK.

I was originally introduced to bitcoin by an Instagram acquaintance of mine. The notion appealed to me, so I decided to invest through the website. I made money from investments in the beginning, and I continued to do so until the website vanished. I couldn’t get any money out before the incident, but luckily my friend suggested Lost Recovery Masters. Right on schedule, they helped me receive my entire money back. It was a pleasure to work with them and they did an excellent job. It may seem unbelievable, yet it is exactly what happened. They put a lot of effort into their work, and we were reimbursed. Consult Lost Recovery Masters.
