Muskoka Birthday Style!

February 1, 2011

In this picture: Kate and Aidan
Where: My friend Jamie’s cottage on lake Muskoka
When: Summer of 2009 for Jamie’s birthday party, shortly after Josh and Janita (not pictured, but on the dock) were married. It was the summer of love II.
Why I love dock jumping: There’s nothing that feels more like comfort and like a shock at the same time than jumping into water. It is the certainty of my youth and the unknown of my adulthood all in one moment.

Me: I am Peter Braul, a journalist living in Montreal.

It’s early to be thinking about winter vacations in Florida, but Andrew in Toronto reminds us of what some of the fuss is all about:

“We don’t have access to a lake – but we like jumping in water…
This is Sammy and Ryan making the most of spring break in Florida – February ’07.
By the look on the their faces, it was the first day of vacation.”

Muskoka Chaser!

September 4, 2009

This photo and note from Dave Munro, who’s adventures with his dog take him to a dock in the Muskokas, north of Toronto, Canada.

He writes:

“Who: Me (David) and my dog (Henley)

What: We wanted a good action shot of our Golden Retriever Henley, so I ran one way then quickly changed direction, Henley then chased after me and leaped into the lake.

Where: Our cottage, 2.5 hours north of Toronto, Canada on Tobin’s Island, on Lake Rosseau in Muskoka.

When: Summer 2009

Good luck with the blog!”

Perspective is everything. Catching sight of the dock, upside down from just above the water sure changes how you see the world.

Water and air

August 23, 2009

It’s one thing to be alive, another to FEEL alive. Dockside, it’s impossible not to FEEL alive when you seek out where water and air meet…like Stylerider does here.
