Aisha’s family moved to Canada from the UK 3 three years ago and “ever since we’ve been enjoying the outdoors like so many other Canadians. There are walking trails, splash-pads and parks EVERYWHERE so it’s easy for families to spend time outdoors. Summer means fireworks and face-paints on Canada Day, watching the rib-eating competition at the local Ribfest, maybe a trip to Niagara Falls or Canada’s Wonderland. But our favourite by far is packing a picnic, grabbing the fishing nets, buckets & spades, frisbee and swimming gear, and heading to the lake. We live just a few minutes walk from a quiet sandy beach on Lake Ontario (one of the Great Lakes that together account for over a fifth of the world’s fresh water) and it’s easy to while away a whole day down there. There’s nowhere we’d rather be on a hot, humid summer day.”
