The great debate

For a girl raised in the Interior, there is just nothing better than swimming in a lake. The water’s cool and clean. There’s no kelp to brush your legs with its slimy sea-monster tentacles. There are no barnacles to slice your feet. Just clear, cold, fresh-smelling summer joy.

I realize that Vancouver-raised folks will argue with this. They’ll talk about the smell of the ocean, the buoyancy of salt water, and the sound of the waves.

But they’ll be wrong.

  1. I agree. But then I would, having grown up in the BC interior, wouldn’t I?

  2. Lakes: 2; Ocean: 0. That settles it.

    Thanks for stopping by, Kevin! Hope life is treating you well.
