When visiting Canada, most people are likely to tell you that it has extreme wnters and extreme summers, which you might not believe until you get to experience both of those seasons in the span of 6 months. Canada is a beautiful country, if you follow me on social media, I am sure you have explored with me and got to see different parts of Ontario. If not, feel free to do so on my Instagram (click here) and Facebook (click here). Back to my summer day at Wasaga Beach. Everyone has been forward to the summer especially because this year the winter was prolonged, so when summer was around the corner a couple of friends of mine from church decided that we would go for the annual youth camp. This was dubbed plan A however I am not about the camping life or anything outdoorsy so I was not for it. Plan B came up and this was kept a secret until the Friday of Canada Day, which was a long weekend.
First things first we organized food and transport so everyone had to chip in because Wasaga Beach is an experience and you have to be prepared for it with the right food. So we all slept in and planned to head out at 7am (joke on us, we left the house at 9am). The drive to Wasaga Beach was nice and full of aircon, since we left really early and could not have breakfast we opted for a Tim Hortons fix, which took us a couple of kilometres to find. I would advice head out when you have eaten. Fast forward an hour and half later we got ourselves a table and set up.
The amount of people at Wasaga Beach can be intimidating, but just as I mentioned a couple of times on my social media, is that Canadians are super friendly and mind their own business, so do not expect any body shaming or dirty looks.
4 THINGS TO CARRY TO WASAGA BEACH
- Towel for drying off yourself when you come out of the water
- Sunscreen because it tends to get to get really hot and if you want to share a sunburn story well you can get forget your sunscreen.
- Sandals or slippers, the whole “feeling the sand” in my feet is an amazing feeling especially walking on the shore, however the sand does tend to get super hot in the afternoon.
- Fabric for spreading on the tables for your food.
