Weekly Photo Challenge: TOGETHER

I remember sitting anxiously watching the school clock count down to the last bell of the last day of a long school year. Ten, nine, eight, seven,…now I’m racing down the hall and my ears are buzzing with the happy chattering of other kids as I burst through the front doors to freedom. I gather up my friends and TOGETHER we gleefully babble about the upcoming break. Summer vacation is finally here. 

This photo was taken during summer vacation in late August in Pukaskwa National Park in northern Ontario. “The Chef” and I had just come back from a hike when we spotted some local kids gathered TOGETHER for an afternoon swim. The air temperature was hovering around 20°C and the water temperature around 15°C but it didn’t matter to these kids. They had the exuberance and invincibility that comes with youth.
