The first Sunday of every month the Danish Community of Puslinch Lake, just south of Guelph, serves up a Smorgasbord. This may seem totally obscure and irrelevant, unless you know my in-laws who immigrated from Sweden and have a weakness for gravlax and meatballs. It was fun to take a walk in the woods, eat smorgasbord, and get to know my danish roots(my mom's dad's side of the family(Mogensen!).
The house that we stayed at on Kiawah Island was my dream home! Not only was the interior a delight for the eyes and my bed a blessing for my back, but the house location was superior. Backed up on a putting/chipping green, I would make my coffee and watch Oskar and my brother in law play a few holes in the morning. While watching their game unfold my eyes would wonder to the river where I would see a gator warming its self. If I looked back at the house my eyes would land on the purple bush that attracted bunches of orange butterflies. After my morning coffee I jumped on to one of the provided bikes with my sister and cycled down to the beach where I encountered 3 dolphins fishing for their lunch while pelicans looked on. Please remind me why I live in Canada again?
I love vacation. Especially when I come back to work feeling totally recovered. That's what Kiawah did for me. I had sun, beach, amazing southern food, family and close encounters with wild animals (there were 2 gators living in the river behind our house!).
