In Manitoba we usually hear this phrase once we hit the long weekend in May. Like socials in Manitoba, it is not familiar in many other provinces. We are indeed a special province to have such an abundance of lakes. According to a quick question to Google “We are home to over 100,000 lakes including Lake Winnipeg, Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipegosis and surface water covers approximately 16 percent of the province.” That’s a lot of swimming holes!
We didn’t have a particular lake to go to when I was little, but I was fortunate to grow up going somewhere for a drive most Sundays and my family visited many places, towns, and lakes throughout Manitoba. One of my fondest, earliest memories is a summer day going to the beach.
