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!
