day 969 – western brunch

image

sleeping in and enjoying a western brunch sounds like a good way to spend my easter saturday. homecooking is harder than it looks, as seen with the failed sunny side ups. it’s not my typical morning food for it’s oilyness, but there’s always some exceptions and portion control is the key. i can’t recall when i last had a day to relax and be outside filling myself with some fresh air. this is just the way i envision spending my rare saturday off, and definitely something i look forward to getting more of

day 740 – wakeboarding

image

continuing my stint of water activities with my first try at wakeboarding today. i didn’t have the greatest success getting up and staying on my board at the beginning, fallen numerous times, but i did manage to get it down somewhat near the end. i also drank a lot of salt water while i was submerged into the open water – i am sure i hit my daily water intake for the day. at the end of the day my forearms are beyond exhausted. but above all i had an awesome time out there and would definitely do it again

hiking adventure – quarry rock

image

wouldn’t have been a fulfilling long weekend if i didn’t get to go out and enjoy the sunshine we’ve been blessed with. got the first hike of this summer out of the way. it’s a fairly short hike and rated one of the easier trails of vancouver so it’s definitely a good place to start. the roundtrip there and back was completed in under one and a half hour, in addition to the time spent taking photos and enjoying the scenery. the view at the peak is beautiful overlooking north vancouver. kayaked at this location a number of times but never have i gotten the view of deep cove from up top. hoping i would be able to go on a longer one with even greater rewards. good thing its just the beginning of august and there’s a whole month left before summer season starts to wrap up

day 312 – new shades

image

a rare sunday afternoon off so i had a chance to squeeze in some shopping. feeling really excited because i finally found a pair of shades i have been wanting for a while. also bought a few more items and spent more than i really should. my wallet probably doesn’t appreciate that burden and would much rather i be at work. just be happy that i don’t get to go all out shopping everyday

day 65 – and the good weather continues

image

consecutive days of blue skies and relatively warm temperatures in october, loving every minute of the sun and hope it’s here to stay for a bit longer. you would think everyone living in vancouver is used to the amount of rain we get, but that’s a total misconception because i will never get used to it
