We Canadians know how to make the most of our summers. We only get 2, maybe 3, months of ideal weather and we cram as much living as we can into that time. To make sure you don’t miss anything, here are our top 5 summer activities.
Whether it’s tossing water balloons or filling up the water pistols and having a little battle, nothing seems quite as refreshing as a good water fight. The surprise when a water balloon bursts right on you or when that cold stream of water from that water pistol hits is so invigorating.
4. Drop a line at the Fishing Hole
Fishing has a little something for everyone. You don’t even need to catch anything to enjoy it. You can do it as a way to simply relax. Just sit back, drop a line and enjoy a cold drink. If you’re looking for some excitement, not much beats a good fight with big ‘ole fish tugging at the line. The careful balance of reeling in and keeping that monster on the line gives quite the rush. Out on a boat or fishing from shore, everything is always good when you’re fishing.
3. BBQ/Pool Party!
Everyone loves a pool party. Get the family and friends together in someone’s backyard. Fire up the grill, fill a cooler with drinks and get the party started. Relax and get a tan on the pool side or dive right in and cool off. Pool parties are great for all ages and are always fun.
2. A Day at the Beach
Get out the beach umbrellas and pack up the towels. Slather on that sunscreen and get ready! We are going to the beach. It is always a good time spending a day at the beach. Digging your toes in the sand or going out for a swim, there is so much to do. Tanning, beach volleyball, Frisbee, touch football, sand castles, jogging and more! You can spend an entire day at the beach and still want to come back for more.
1. Camping in the Great Outdoors
Almost everyone I ask lists camping as the #1 thing they look forward to in the summer. In a trailer or a tent, you can’t go wrong. It’s a timeless activity for friends or family, young and old. Cooking over the open fire, hiking along the trails or singing songs, it’s hard not to enjoy yourself.
With so many fun things to do you are bound to make some great memories every time summer comes around. Make sure you bring your camera everywhere and get lots of pictures. At the end of the season, make yourself an awesome Photobook to look back on and remember what a great summer it was.
