The Canadian Swim by David Macfarlane

Rating ***

This article is about a man who drives 7 hours every year for his family trip and once he arrives has to carry all the luggage to the cabin, exhausted after the work he noticed a small dock on the back of the private island. Seeing the opportunity for a refreshing dip and rather than ask the family he simply goes in for a bit. This has become a tradition for him because every year when they go to the cottage he slips away for some beautiful and refreshing couple of minutes of a swim. I think this is really amazing of him to create a tradition out of something so little as a peaceful couple minutes in the water alone, during this he reflects on how lucky we are as Canadians to have so much water and secluded places for these kind of traditions.
