Living in one of the most beautiful and serene parts of the world gives us unlimited new places to explore when the sun is shining. Vancouver Island holds some of the purest, freshest rivers and lakes that are the ultimate paradise when the weather heats up. We packed a bag filled with sunscreen, sunnies, thread to make bracelets, books and snacks and set out to find a lake we had never been to. After a few GPS confusions and wrong turns, we arrived at Durrance Lake. It was breathtaking. The water was clear enough to see straight to the bottom and the sun shone directly on the secluded beach we discovered. The only thing that could have made this day more relaxing was an air mattress to float around the lake on... and maybe some 'refreshments'.
It was still a little too chilly for us to swim but we had a lovely day tanning and chatting. Hope the sun was shining wherever you were!
