Our New Place

As mentioned, Peter and I have moved! We are now living in a converted boathouse, about 20 minutes outside of Sechelt (maybe closer, maybe further, depending on who you're driving behind on the highway!) For the past seven months most of our stuff has been in storage so it's been a fun couple of weeks… Continue reading Our New Place

Blue Monday Happiness

Today is unofficially marked as "Blue Monday" - the so-called "most depressing day of the year". There's some pseudo-science calculation behind it that has to do with the weather/length between holidays/bills arriving after Christmas. If you're in Australia right now, you're probably fine. We had a not very relaxing weekend, I've worked 11 of the… Continue reading Blue Monday Happiness

Dakota Ridge Exploration

A year and a half ago, Peter and I bought our first car. This was right before we moved to Chilliwack and we had never owned a car. We needed one in a hurry and so we bought the first car that was within our price range and seemed reasonable. Although the car did pretty… Continue reading Dakota Ridge Exploration

A Skookum Hike

Peter and I and our friend, Kyle. This is one of the few hikes around here that I've actually… Continue reading A Skookum Hike

Scenes From a Sunday

After a few days of rain and a tsunami warning* last night, a day of sun came as a surprise. This morning before church. Afternoon on the beach. I've heard people from eastern Canada (Please note: I consider anything east of the Rockies to be eastern Canada but usually when I say "eastern Canada" I… Continue reading Scenes From a Sunday

Chapman Creek Hike

Yesterday was the double whammy of Thanksgiving Day and Peter's birthday. Lucky guy got a holiday to celebrate his day. In the afternoon we hiked along Chapman Creek. I'd done this hike with Peter once before, years ago on one of my first visits. It was a beautiful day and a really great little hike.… Continue reading Chapman Creek Hike

Summer Holds On

Lately... Jellyfish are throwing themselves to a certain death on the rocks. I'd feel bad about it but jellyfish are jerks. The weather continues to be amazing. The beach gets quieter and quieter though now that the weekend folks/holidayers aren't around. That heron didn't stick around to hang out with us but did leave behind… Continue reading Summer Holds On

Thrifting on the Sunshine Coast

This is a bit of an overdue post but I guess now I can say I was waiting for summer to end in order to give you a more complete overview (or something like that!). I've done some good thrifting since moving to the Sunshine Coast in July and I'd like to share some of… Continue reading Thrifting on the Sunshine Coast
