To celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, my sister, daughter and niece (not filmed) spent a few of our afternoons in Okanagan Lake.

The thing I love about Canadians is that we are tough mothers. Cold water never frightens a Canadian.
Last year, when I was in Cuba, snorkelling in a freshwater, underground river, our driver told me I’d find the water too cold to bother going in. Of course, as a Canadian, I highly doubted it. Indeed, the water was refreshing, similar in temperature to a fresh water Canadian lake in July.

Thus, on this Thanksgiving, on top of being thankful for family and health, I am very thankful for beautiful Okanagan Lake; which, is a huge part of my life all year long. I’m either in the lake or running on trails above it.

I thank Ogopogo, the spirit of Okanagan Lake.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to my fellow tough Canucks!

    It was actually not too bad. Thankfully the air temperature is still mild! We are debating whether or not to try and dunk once a week until the New Year for a sort of early New Year’s Resolution challenge to raise awareness of our vulnerable Canadian waters.
