Tessa's Travels - Summer 2013 Edition

Well, the summer of 2013 has come and gone. This is going to be my last summer-related post for the year, so I thought it would be fitting to let Tessa take over the blog today. She's been begging me to let her show everyone the places she went and the things she saw during her first ever summer, so here goes....
In July, I saw the mountains for the first time. I went and spent a day at Waterton. 
Here's me at Cameron Falls...

Then, I went to Cypress Hills. My mom says this is one of her favorite places. It's alright.
I checked out the lake and spent a week at camp and met lots of new people.


 In August, I took my first plane ride to Victoria, BC.

 I kept pretty busy in Victoria...

I went on a boat for the first time and saw some whales in the ocean...

 I checked out Butchart Gardens (got photobombed too!) and played with flamingos and butterflies at the Butterfly Gardens.

 I saw a bunch of old buildings...

    And hung out for a bit at the BC Parliament Building.
Yay government!

I went for a hike and enjoyed some nature...

...stopped for a while at this waterfall and thought about my life.

I relaxed in the hotel pool

And got to drive a pretty nice car!

I think it's been a pretty great summer! Already working on some big plans for next year.

What did you do this summer??
