CRESCENT BEACH

It’s been almost a month (I think) since I bought my DJI Mavic Pro drone! And even LONGER since my last post. I should really get back into writing some more!

GOODBYE, RATHSKELLER

I’m basically going to copy and paste what I wrote on my Instagram:

Last night my friend told me the Rathskeller Schnitzel House in Victoria was closing and I immediately said “No!”. We walked by it and saw the sign that after over 50 years it was closing its restaurant doors for the last time on January 22, 2017. It was 5 minutes before closing time but we went in to see if we can get a beer. I for sure thought the manager was going to tell us a solid “no” but she agreed to let us have just one beer.

NERF WAR?

It’s Friday night and what was supposed to be a night of music bingo, dinner, and playing pool at the local pool hall — ended up being a night totally different from what we originally planned.

Happy 4th of July, otherwise known as, the day we surprise my friend Sarah by having her stagette, camping at French Beach!

I met up with my friend Amy to pick up a few more things and then headed over to pick up one other person. The plan was that Sarah would be going hiking with her soon-to-be-sister-in-law and she knew she was having her stagette (so that part wasn’t really a surprise) but she didn’t know exactly where it was happening and who was going to be there.

WEEKEND #1 IN VICTORIA

Music:

James William Hindle “Leaving Trains”

Hello!

This weekend I went over to Victoria mainly for my friend’s baby shower on Sunday. The ferry ride over was just amazing! I don’t really like getting out of my car to head upstairs while i’m on the ferry, but I got out of my car and walked towards the open window in the car parkade (not sure what the proper term is for that area) and the view was simply amazing!

DANNY VISITS + PLAYDOME + ST. PATTYS DAY WEEKEND

My friend Danny came and visited me over the weekend! But more importantly, he came over so we could go to PLAYDOME at BC Place on Saturday! (http://www.bcplacestadium.com/playdome)

Much laughing, much much screaming, and much much much crazy hair (on my part).

We then headed down to Granville St. and the sun started peaking out! Which was awesome because I was expecting rain this whole weekend. I bought some canvas shoes from VANS, checked out CelticFest that was happening and other St. Patty’s shenanigans. Walked down to check out the Olympic torch, and then skytrained over to Commercial Drive and had paddle beers on the patio at St. Augustines.

Later that evening, we went to the community centre and used the hot tub, and then grabbed pizza at Me & Ed’s pizza!

Such a fun weekend!

Cheers!

Checked out the Andy Warhol exhibit with my friend, UK Rob! Then headed over to Granville Island Brewery to get some food and drinks. Went on a boat that was half-occupied to what felt like a “pub-crawl boat” (aka someone’s birthday???). And then rounded the evening getting a drink at the Yaletown Brewery.
