My Favorite Place to go is on Beach Vacations They are Like Heaven

Updated on June 3, 2014

My favorite place at the end of the dock on my beach vacations

My Favorite Place to go is on Beach Vacations They are Like Heaven. My favorite place is at the end of the dock at our summer camp in Ontario, Canada for my beach vacations. I became my favorite place a long time ago when I discovered I could do anything I wanted without the usual interruptions. Over the years my favorite place has allowed me to complete my Ph. D., read many books, listen to music and just get away from it all. I can sit on a chair or lay on a towel and listen to the waves of the St. Mary's river as they lap against the aging wood while on my trip. The sound of boat and swimmer have fun on the water are part of the ambiance,

Each year I make the 1,500 mile trek from the Gulf Coast of Mississippi to our summer camp in Canada for a vacation. Over the last 20 year or so I have witnessed the level of the water on the river rise to fill the banks and shrink down to a stream. Yet each year it beacons me and I obey it call.

I have a little green tote that I have used for many years to transport my necessities to the end of the 125 foot dock. Each day I make my way to my favorite place and allow the magic time to happen on my vacation. A good book on my reader or an audible book on my I-pod. I lay back in my swimsuit with my sunscreen applied, relax and enjoy my time at the end of my dock.

Can you see my favorite place? - The view from the water to my special dock.

This is the view people see as they ride their boats up to my dock. I could stay there for hours and sometime I do, while on my beach vacation. I can see the fish in the crystal clear water as they swim up to the dock to rest from the sun. I can see crayfish and clams on the sandy water of the river. Sometime I even fish from the end of the dock.

My favorite place on the end of the dock is where I store my floating chair for my beach vacation. After I read or listen to my I-pod I put my floating lounge chair into the water and splash around the dock. I go over to my neighbors who are my cousins and invite them to come with me. Before they come in the bring snacks and refreshments for our paddle around the beach front.

We chatter and plan our supper together, what we are going to do, and catch up on what we did last winter. We meet here every year for 5-6 months of family, friends, and fun. After we make out plans it is time to leave my favorite place and prepare our family supper.

Careful Don't Hit the Dock - Ruthie Learning to Dock a Boat

The evening is coming and it time for everyone to end their favorite activities. Supper is cooking and is served at 6:30 PM each evening. From far and wide everyone will meet to share the days activities over a family meal, shared with our extended family. Everyone knows that supper waits for no one. If your not there on time, you may not get any.

It's like a military operation at supper time, everyone know what chore they are assigned to accomplish. If the meal is at your camp you automatically prepare the main dish and provide the place settings for each member. At supper time side dishes, salads and desserts make their way to the serving table. Twenty or more people have been fed and now it's time for the evening activities to begin.

Traditionally, we have a campfire and share more time with the family. Guitars, harmonicas and singing fill the air Boat pull up to the dock and neighbor know they are welcome to join in. Scary camp stories are told and children are put to bed. It is not unusual for the adult to sit and tend the fire until the wee hours of the night. Then off to bed for us and another day will bring me back to my favorite place on the end of the dock.
