Lake Erie, ON - Tessa M
For my whole life, I have been going to my grandparents cottage in Port Stanley. That is probably why I feel so connected to Lake Erie. I go down to the cottage at least two times during the summer, and I always have a great time. I’ve had so many great times there, but one was my favourite by far.
A couple years ago, my sister, and I went to my grandparents cottage for a week. We usually go for two to three days, so we were very excited to go for a week. As soon as we woke up the next day, we got ready to go to the beach. When we got to the beach we decided we would rent out paddle boards for the first time. My sister and I were very excited. We quickly figured out how to balance and paddle on the boards. We had so much fun paddling on the lake. So much fun that we got our own paddle boards after that.
Later that day, we got ice cream and took a walk down the pier. We watched the bright sun go down over the lake. We watched the sunset and got ice cream every night after that. Every time we go down to the cottage I have an amazing time. I've been going to Lake Erie all my life and I always make new memories.
Every time we go to Port Stanley we always see everyone having a great time, whether it's playing in the water or building sandcastles. I always feel so relaxed and excited when we go to the cottage, and I would like to keep it that way. I have many great memories from Lake Erie and I am excited to make many more.
