20 photos that prove Manitoba lake life is the best life

Posted July 19, 2017 | Author Breanne Sewards

I don’t care about how much of a city slicker you are, when summer hits, we all itch to get out to the lake – any lake! Manitoba’s 5 degrees of cabin separation means that most of us get out at least once during the summer, while others move into their cozy summer abodes for the entirety of June, July and August.

Our Provincial and National Parks are cottage and camping country, where docks lead us seamlessly into gorgeous waters and singing birds rouse us from lazy afternoon naps. If you’re thinking this sounds like paradise, you’re right. Here are 20 photos that prove Manitoba lake life is the best life…

A trip to the cabin means getting away from it all

With untold adventures only a paddle away

And new memories are always being made.

There are over 100,000 lakes to explore

And with loved ones always nearby

…it’s the perfect place to float life away.

The views never get old

And the food is always just a tad more delicious.

Even the coffee tastes better on the dock!

By night, the best stories (and songs) come out around the bonfire

Yet even surrounded by family and friends, moments of solace are fully within reach.

The water is spectacular and refreshing

And so are the cold beverages.

Traffic is at a minimum

And you always gather the courage to take a leap of faith.

New friends are always showing up

And there endless opportunities to get closer to nature

You can stay up to see the Northern lights bounce off the water

Or just end the day with a phenomenal sunset.

Yup, time spent at the lake is time well spent. And your best friend(s) will love it, too.
