Our Canadian Girls take home the GOLD…


So proud of my old Winter Guard the Pacificaires. They’ve been around and competing for over 3 decades. We put in some good showings but were never able to break the top echelon. Just sticking around as a player for over 3 decades is a feat not many independent groups have been able to do, but deep down we were all striving for the allusive Gold medal. Congrats to to everyone involved in bringing the Gold home!

Here’s an excerpt from their review:

1st Place – 95.4 – Pacificaires (Surrey, BC, Canada)Oh, Canada, thank you for sending these earthy women from the north. The spectators in the Arena found themselves “Falling Slowly” in love with them. Poised and confident, controlled and strong, they filled the vast space with strength and loveliness, repeating a movement montage of slowly lowering each other to the earth. Graceful movers, solid spinners, strong moments by soloists, strong moments by the ensemble, and a finale flag feature that moved and reshaped and then dissolved into duets of support and grace…the quiet strength and show design sophistication are what put these young women on top tonight. Congratulations on winning the gold medal!

and here’s a clip of the girls getting their medals!

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
