Lake Simcoe, ON - Ariel Archibald
My Watermark is Lake Simcoe, Ontario.
This waterbody is important to me because I walked along it on a trail everyday on my way to and from work, and it was always the best part of my day. I'd walk along the beautiful trail for 45 minutes, soaking in the breeze off the lake.
It became a special time for me to unwind and appreciate nature before working at a busy restaurant. I always found myself feeling so much better within minutes of walking along the lake trail, even in the winter it was a beautiful walk. This daily journey changed my outlook, and created a strong bond within me for the area.
