Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Day one in the new apartment…

Day one was busy,

Started by teaching my yoga class, rushing to pick up the moving truck (driving a big truck is fun!) and then the move. Once all was done we went out for a walk on the river and on the way back saw an interesting couple (insert 80’s hair band visual) getting out of a cab and into my building. Turns out they were heading to a WWF themed party upstairs. The elevator opens and there are more of them. So the elevator is full of tall guys in various coloured body spandex and mullets, me, my mom and her dog (holly berry) and my sis. Of course, the elevator gets stuck. Now I’ve been stuck in an elevator before, but it was just two people and we had groceries to snack on so it was kind of fun. As funny as this situation was I felt panic setting in fast. I had about an inch between me and this big guy in full yellow body spandex and I wanted out. Luckily one of the guys managed to pry the doors open. We were between floors so one by one we jumped out. Apparently this is not something you should do – the shift in weight could get the elevator moving again, but no worries there were no limbs lost. So great. We are out of the elevator but now we are stuck in the stairwell. The building has different keys for each level and I didn’t have my key yet. Crazy day, but I did get to meet the hot firemen that live a floor below me (I love my new place), and a few of my neighbours. One of which came to the stairwell to let his wife in only to be surprised by a whole crew of people waiting to be let in (he had run out of the shower in a hand towel).

PS. Thanks to Noel, Shawn and Stace for helping with my easiest move ever (and I hope last for some time).

Our last leg of @route16_ca was gorgeous. Lots of fun corners, surrounded by forest, towering mountains, and ocean. We stopped at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward. Totally worth it, do the tour if you visit. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #travelnorthernbc #motorcycle #roadtrip #historic #britishcolumbia #route16 #suzukitu250x #motoroadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute
Our best riding day was a side trip through the Nass Valley. Rode through a landscape of lava rocks, forests, and mountains, while weaving through some fun corners, stopping at First Nations villages and hot springs. We ended up back on the Pacific Ocean, so close to Alaska. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #roadtrip #roadtrippin #moto #motorcycle #suzukitu250x #nassvalleylavabeds #hotsprings #beatifulbc #travelnorthernbc #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #route16 #nassvalley #nassvalleyhotsprings #watchyourhead
Our cabin in #smithers was one of the many highlights on @route16_ca A view of #hudsonbaymountain and an adorable cabin in the woods... #explorebc #motorcycleroadtrip #motorcycle #roadtrip #route16 #travelnorthernbc #cabininthewoods
A little hazy as we left Prince George and started our journey along #route16 Met a bunch firefighters from around the world that were staying at our hotel in PG. So grateful for everything they are doing to save our forests. #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x #2000km #1200miles #northofthewall #motorcycle #roadtrip #thankyou #grateful #lovetrees
Loved the ride up to @barkervillebc I'm a sucker for historic towns. #goldrushtrail #explorebc so far we've made our way up #seatoskyhighway #duffylakeroad #route97 #cariboohighway next up @route16_ca #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x is rocking it.
Howe Sound view from the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola. Did my first ride of the Sea-to-Sky highway today. So much fun. Lots of corners but also lots of space since the hwy expansion in 2010. I remember driving this back in the 90's when it was single lanes. So much safer now. Did an amazing morning yoga class at the top. Highly recommend trying it! Classes start at 9:45 every weekday morning (taught by @northyoga_ ). Today's class was Yang to Yin... a perfect mix of flow and deep stretches for all levels #yoga #explorebc #seatoskyhighway #seatoskygondola #roadtrip #girlsthatride #moto #view #nature #yogainnature #yogaview #motorcycle
