The Sea to Sky Marine Trail Sunday, September 5, 12021 HE To see the details for day one and the preamble to this trip see this post. Otherwise, continue on into the vicarious adventure. I woke to the pitter-patter of rain after a broken night of sleep. That’s my typical sleep pattern when camping, interrupted. ThereContinue reading “SUP’in the Sound: Day 2”
The Sea to Sky Marine Trail Saturday, September 4, 12021 HE This trip was the culmination of many separate but intertwined threads. Here are some of those distinct but related experiences. A childhood growing up in Squamish. My parents’ passion for nature and taking us on summer hiking and camping trips. A canoe trip around Bowron LakesContinue reading “SUP’in the Sound”
Sunday, August 22, 12021 HE It seems I capitalised on the change in weather from our last heatwave to the mini-fall window and then back to summer. Looking ahead at the forecast earlier in the week, I could see that Windy.com predicted favourable winds for a Span-Kit downwinder. A front was bringing a westerly wind, and with itContinue reading “Span-Kit Downwinder – Short”
Tuesday, August 10, 12021 HE We are away on Vancouver Island for a family vacation. We did the same trip last summer after the pandemic lockdown eased. We had booked for the spring of 2020 but, with the British Columbia Provincial Health Officer issuing a travel advisory recommending against non-essential travel, we decided to cancel our trip. Fortunately, theContinue reading “Saysutshun Circumnavigation”

We had booked for a spring trip in 2020 but, with the British Columbia Provincial Health Officer issuing a travel advisory at the time, recommending against non-essential travel, we decided to cancelContinue reading “Wildlife Explorers”
Tuesday, August 3, 12021 HE The video below is an informative TED-Ed short film on the history of surfing. It serves as an excellent preamble to this post. We are away on Vancouver Island for a family vacation. We did a similar trip last year, where I got a lot of paddling in as we were staying right onContinue reading “SUP ‘Surfs’ Up”
Sunday, July 25, 12021 HE For day one of my trip and the backstory, see here. Below is a virtual recreation of the route I paddled on day two to give you an overview of the blog post. I used Google Maps, Google Earth Studio, and OpenShot Video Editor to create the virtual tour. You canContinue reading “Shh…Hutt Island: Bowen Island Circumnavigation, Day 2”
Saturday, July 24, 12021 HE Shhh….hush, this one is an insider secret. A lot of thought and preparation went into this trip. A bit ironic because it was only one night, but it is something that I have wanted to do for a while, with a long-term goal of doing a multi-day trip (e.g. the SeaContinue reading “Shh…Hutt Island: Bowen Island Circumnavigation”
Sunday, July 18, 12021 HE Last year before the pandemic was declared we went to the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre. At one of the presentations, the presenter mentioned that you can see the International Space Station (ISS) with the naked eye. And the sighting times can be found on the Spot the Station website. Shortly after that visit, I wasContinue reading “International Twilight Space Paddle”
Wednesday, July 14, 12021 HE We were camping at the Gold Creek Campground at Alouette Lake in Golden Ears Provincial Park. In the morning I had explored the western shoreline from Gold Creek south towards Alouette Lake South Beach. For the afternoon we made a family trip down to North Beach. We drove over from our campground and parked at the Gold Creek Parking. We then tookContinue reading “Afternoon Paddle Troubles: Alouette Lake”
