Summer Swim Time

Lately, we have been experiencing a heat wave here in Toronto. We can't complain as we welcome the sun and the heat in this mid-summer season. One perfect way to enjoy the heat is to go swimming at the new swimming pools at the Petticoat Creek Conservation Park in Pickering, east of Toronto. I was most impressed that the park have 3 pools and 1 splash area for kids and adults alike. Then the whole park also have hiking trails all the way to Lake Ontario and there are picnic areas all around. I also found some inspiring photos on Instagram of people and places to enjoy the summer's heat and sun around the pool. So where ever you are, enjoy the summer heat and sun while it last. 
 One of the Instagram I follow is french stylist and author, Caroline De Maigret.
