visit the gorge || my life

Look at my hair! It's got that ombre effect to it... and I didn't do it on purpose.

Yesterday was such a lovely day. My friend Bethany has been in town visiting from Edmonton so we spent the day yesterday catching up and playing at Elora Gorge Conservation Park. It was so refreshing to sit outside and play in caves and water without any care in the world. I felt really young again running through the ice cold water and climbing up into muddy caves. 
Through my friendships with these girls, Amanda and Bethany, I've discovered that time and distance really doesn't matter. Even though I hadn't been with them for more than a year and a half we were able to pick up where we had left off. Days like yesterday remind me of how the simple, small things in life are the most beautiful things. 

If you live in Southern Ontario you have to visit Elora. It's such a cute small town and is right by the gorge. I remember swimming here as a kid and tubing down the WILD waters with my best friends. While we were in the gorge we wondered how high the waters were thousands and thousands of years ago. Every person that visits, whether it be once or many times, creates a personal memory and attachment to it. That's how it is for any place you go to. There's something special about revisiting places of the past.

*Yay for my 100th post*
