First month

I've been in canada for about 3 weeks now. We've done all sorts of things. During the first week I got to see a deer on the conservation park that backs up onto Colin's mums house. It was about 9 am in the morning. A beautiful doe. 
The first weekend I was here (24th/25th july) I got to meet some of Colin's relatives. They are lovely people. Then we went touring and stuff. I've seen pretty much all of kingston. 
On the 30th of july, Colin's mum Anne took Colin, Cameron and I up to her trailer (camper van). Its at this really nice park. There is a large lake there and a forest on the other side. So the first thing you see when you go outside in the morning is the lake covered in a thin layer of mist with the forest lit up in orange from the sun. It was almost magical. Oh and the lake? I've never seen clearer water before. You can see everything until it gets too deep. I got to see my first chipmunks, loons and flying squirrels there. It was fantastic. 
At the moment, we're living with Dad and Cindy. Things have gotten a little quieter. Well...for me at least. Colin is playing taxi for his brothers, mostly driving cammy to work, but he gets petrol money.
On Sunday, Brad took colin and I out to a pool lounge/bar thing. there is at least 15 pool tables at this place. Raxxes or something. we had so much fun :)
I've also met a few of colin's friends during these last 3 weeks. They are nice people :) Lots of fun to be around. Cody especially. He's hilarious. I can see why he's Colin's best friend now.
The one thing I miss tho is the sun lol. Not saying there isn't sun here at all....its just alot less than in australia. It's frequently overcast. Everyday the sun get covered in cloud at some point. I've just started on some vitamin D tablets (see natty, I listened to you!). All I felt like doing today was sleeping. So after explaining to colin that it was my anemia due to lack of iron and vitamin D, he asked what has iron in it and i told him strawberries (high amount of iron in those!). He was just about to go on a run for me when dad sent him back downstairs with the tablets. They are the ones you can get from coles and stuff. I'm going to see how they go and see if i feel any better in the next few days. anyways time for bed. Its now....12:40 in the morning. ugh.....most post later!! Love you and miss you all!
