Today felt like a really long day.
Today was not at all how I expected it would go.
Let’s start at the beginning briefly – Adrian and I woke up early and packed the truck and headed to Deadman Valley.
We drove through dirty roads and passed by abandoned houses. Continue reading
My brother-in-law turned a little early, and thought he was going the right way to the beach (he wasn’t). When we got to gravel road and later potholes, he decided to commit and keep going as we can see the ocean ahead and a few cars, so “there must be something there, right?”.
Normally I would be all for it! EXCEPT: 1) We were in a mini-van 2) My parents were not into it 3) My sister was not into it 4) My 4-year old nephew was not enjoying it 5) My 1-year old nephew was not into it, but then promptly fell asleep and 6) I was more worried about the tires.
But we committed.
I’ve been wanting to visit this trestle for a while now. Continue reading
This was maybe one of the more challenging hikes (so far) for me. Lots of incline, not enough breaths taken or exercise done to prepare haha
I think the last time I went to Whytecliff Park was in 2009. I had just gotten out of a relationship and I decided to venture off to Vancouver to explore parks and beaches because it was the only thing that helped keep my mind off of things. I guess every one has that same type of vice.
Now 7 years later and living in Vancouver, I went on a spontaneous adventure to West Vancouver. (I originally wanted to go on Saturday, but an accident happened on the main road and so I was detoured. Therefore deciding to just go the next day). Thankfully, the weather was still gorgeous.
I jettisoned off in the late afternoon hoping to arrive a couple hours before sunset.
When I arrived it was pretty much how I remembered it all those years ago: vibrant and calm.
In the middle of my treck up the side of a cliff, I noticed that on top of the tiny rock island across from me there was a couple. The tiny rock island is accessed via along the rocks and boulders that led out towards the island. The water was already elevated to where most of the rocks and boulders were submerged. I think everyone there was wondering when the couple would decide to wade there way back to the beachside.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and New Year spent with loved ones!
I decided to grab my GoPro and take a time-lapse of the sunset during a misty afternoon near a river bend.
Woke up early in the morning and made my way down to the docks one last time before we all head back into town.
The air was crisp and the sky was still waking up judging from all the colors in the sky with the fog settling in.
I mean is this not a beautiful view or what? Continue reading
It was my friend, Kat’s birthday. And she decided this year to head to my friend Jen’s cabin for the weekend!
Every one was up there by the time my friend and I got there and I immediately wanted to head down towards the docks. I have a thing for docks so I was pretty amped.
It was only a short walk down towards the water.
The view was spectacular to say the least.
It’s the second to last day in Hawaii! 🙁 I’m so sad, but I couldn’t have had a better second-to-last day.
We went to The Four Seasons for lunch at The Beach Tree which was a patio restaurant that overlooks the beach that they had there.
While we were waiting for our table, I wandered over to the beach (because of course I did). Continue reading
