Long Lake, NS - Mariah Pelley-Smith

Long lake is a beautiful sacred space that my partner and I explore when we need to connect to the water and land.

We live close to this body and notice its importance to the people in the community. I am not a great swimmer, but I enjoy the cold fresh water on my skin and the life force of its movement.

I find that the tree life around it and the animals who live in the Long Lake Park, all have beautiful ways of interacting and giving each other what they need. It is a special thing to have a real piece of nature and an echo of a true ecosystem right in the middle of the Suburbs.

Water and air connect every living thing on this planet and it's so important that we have places to go to remember.
