This is my favourite place to be in the summer. Think warm. Hot sun. Cool clean lake water. A perfect summer day.
I love driving the boat for water skiers and wake boarders. Love creating an experience that they'll enjoy, whether they are a beginner at it or an expert. Finding that perfect part of the lake for them. And I LOVE water skiing and wake boarding too.
The anticipation as I hang in the water waiting to say "hit it". The boat takes off pulling me up. Kicking it back old school on a slalom ski going back and forth across the wake. Pulling so hard on the tow rope that I am almost parallel to the boat. Stopping in at the marina for a popsicle.
And when the boating is done, parking the boat at the dock, hopping into a Muskoka chair and picking up a book to read while I dry off.
You know that I love to read, right? I always have a book on the go. And I have been doing my crazy video book reviews too. Well, here's a list of them all in one place for your summer reading pleasure.
The Rules of Civility by Amor Towles - Think Mad Men meets Breakfast at Tiffany's meets the Great Gatsby
The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson - The Royal Tenenbaums with performance artists at parents
Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes - Suspense plus a little OCD
The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt - A quirky western with unforgettable characters
Before I Go to Sleep by SJ Watson - If you had amnesia, who could you trust?
Do you want more? I'll be doing some more book reviews soon. What are you reading this summer? If you have a summer reading post, share it in the comments so we can pool our "reading" resources, okay?
(BTW, the sunglasses are Paul Smith from three years ago - you can't seem them TOO clearly in the photo but they are fab).
