Our neighbourhood becomes parking chaos at this time of year; we live two blocks away from the Capilano Suspension Bridge and they put on one heck of an amazing light display in the forest and on the bridge across the river. People come from all across the Lower Mainland to see it. And even though [...]
October 1, 2017 - October? Already? How’d that happen so fast! The rain over the past two days disappeared and the sun made a brilliant appearance, and that made it a perfect day to wander Lower Lonsdale, or “LoLo” as it’s been dubbed relatively recently.

July 1, 2017 - Happy 150th Birthday Canada, I am so grateful to call you home. Today, for Canada Day, for Canada's 150th birthday, we decided to celebrate by trying something new. Paddleboarding….because it is hot and I'd rather fall into the cold ocean on a hot day than a cold one. And I was [...]

December 16, 2015 - Kirk sent me a text from his work out in Richmond part way through the day. He said "...if you can you should try to get outside and take a picture of the North Shore Mountains they look fantastic..." Today was a particularly spectacular day, and so, on his urging, I [...]
