Guest inspiration: Muskoka – Lazy Days of Summer

Hi! I am Pamela, the Publisher of the blog, The Style and Travel Journals. I am grateful to Maria for this collaboration of Guest Posting in her Inspirational blog.

Summer is almost ending.  I was in the Muskoka Lake District the past weekend to have  a vacation, to go swimming and just relaxing. The Muskoka Lake District is north of Toronto, Canada. The Muskokas is composed of the Lake Muskoka, Lake Rousseau and Lake Joseph. There are numerous smaller lakes surrounding this area.

In these Lakes are traditional Canadian cottages and there are multi-million dollar cottages with their large boathouses. The picture above with the dock and traditional Muskoka chairs is a perfect place to relax, to daydream and just enjoy the view.

When I was in Muskoka, I just felt to slow down, to relax, enjoy the water and most of the time just fell asleep.  I love going here in Muskoka during summer.  It is a perfect place to hangout for a lazy day in summer. Where do you go and what do you do to enjoy a lazy day in summer?

Pablo Picasso’s painting “The Bathers” painted in 1918 is a perfect picture to describe a lazy day of summer.

    I love this! Summer always has me really lethargic, but lakes and beach houses and things are so refreshing. All those blues and greens. :)

    Such a lovely place for the summer vacation! I think most of all I like one-day trips in summertime. Just take a day off, get in the car and drive to a wonderful place, like a lake, a secluded little town, to the seaside or in the mountains and simply change the pace and enjoy the day.
