Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter


Ok, so I love music and love dancing even more. But I’ve never been someone that tries to keep up with what’s out there in music or know what’s the new hip underground sound. If I hear a sound I like, I dance… and then it’s over and I move on. Even back in the day, I had enough friends that were music obsessed that I knew I’d be exposed to great sounds through them… without having to do the heavy lifting. So… to say I don’t follow the DJ craze would be an understatement. Saturday night I stumbled into attending a show by DJ A-Trak and I was very pleasantly surprised. First of all the place was wall to wall with cute (but of course too young)guys – I wanted to go back in time and bring my 25 year-old-self to the show. Before the DJ got there, we thought about bailing a few times and heading to an older yuppy/yaletown type establishment, but we were talked into staying by many as they went on and on about how great the DJ is. I’ mean really, a DJ… how great can it be? I was sceptical, but curious. So he finally arrives and oddly enough so do a bunch of paparazzi type cameras. I’m like “what’s up with the paps… are the Hills girls hiding out in the bathroom or something?”. Nope, they were there to get pics of the DJ at work. Interesting… so he starts, and almost immediately you can tell the difference from the guys that were spinning before him. He’s my favourite kind of DJ – where you can tell his music is dancing with the crowd instead of just playing the music for the crowd to react to. The crowd reacts to the music and the DJ reacts to the dancing slipping beats and sounds underneath and if you catch it he keeps it (and builds it into more) – it was awesome. Anyway… that was my first experience with the new Celebrity DJ’s and I’m no longer sceptical – the fame is well deserved.

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
