I have to say, my birthday (weekend) was pretty much perfect. A few of the pals and I drove out to the small town of Elora – which by the way is such a sweet little town – to swim and spend the day at the their tremendous quarry. Elora Gorge kind of took my breath away, in ways I did not expect it to. There were so many people there, and while that could have felt incredibly overwhelming, the quarry was so vast you felt like you were on your own. One of the highlights for me was swimming out to the far cliffs and standing on the rocky ledges of the walls, having water trickle down from above.
I must admit, I am a little terrified of open waters. Not knowing what is beneath my feet gives me incredible anxiety. But I could have spent the entire day in there (if only treading water didn’t make me feel like I would eventually sink to the bottom like a human anchor).
All of Saturday made me really excited for the camping trip Matt and I have planned next week. I’ve been so busy for I don’t know how long, my mind is screaming for days away from computer screens, phones, schedules, rehearsals and just plain ol’ city life. The silence and stars will be a welcome change. Being able to see the stars, who would of thought that would become such a rare occurrence in my life.
