It was the end of one of the most frenetic weeks I’ve ever experienced. A situation that happened to a loved one put me in the position to take full control and fix it as quickly as possible.
This challenge left me feeling purely exhausted. I didn’t feel like doing much, but I decided to meet up with a friend for something low key and relaxing. We ended up at the lake. We reflected on the chaos that just happened whilst sitting in the rain.
Then came the sun…
I guess it’s important to remember that there’s always sunshine after the rain. Life will always have storms, but we push through, and the sun will reappear.
I came here just before the park opened for the season. If you’re coming during the off season, you have to park your car in the front parking lot, or if during high season you can bring your car in to one of the spots with a picnic table for day use.
There are a variety of spots, my personal favorite are the ones by the lake. There are some that have picnic tables almost in the water!
There’s also a variety of paths you can walk. It’s good for moderate walkers as there’s some hills.
As mentioned, I came during off season so there weren’t a lot of people. It was quite peaceful.
Laurie Provincial Park is great for bird watchers, which I’ve recently become more interested in during my hikes.
As I was walking towards the lake there were several chirping birds along the way, that made this a memorable day!
