Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

I’m begining to think the MOV is pretty cool.

My museum musings are usually reserved for my away from home travels, but working in the tourism industry and participating in the Tourism Challenge I’ve had the opportunity to explore some of our local attractions and have been pleasantly surprised. So one of two things may be happening here. The Museum of Vancouver really has some cool exhibits that delve into vancouver’s quirky historical style influences… or I’ve now entered into that age where museum exhibits are cool. You tell me. Last year they had the FLuevog exhibit. I love my Vog boots and I remember back in the 80’s when Fluevogs were used to describe a Vancouver Goth/punk/nonconforming person. I remember explaining a guy I dated to my friends as ‘he wears Vogs’ and they knew exactly what it meant. So the exhibit last year was a fun walk through time. His shoes are art. This year there were a couple of fun exhibits as well. The first one consists of a bunch of the salvaged neon signs that used to be in Vancouver along with the cities Neon history. It was a quiet time when I went so was able to stand in the middle of the room full of signs listening to the electric hum. Pretty cool.

and then there was the fashions through the ages exhibit. Beautiful gowns that I’d totally wear now if I had the occasion. Funny, I seemed to always gravitate to the 30’s ‘tea dresses’. What kind of tea’s did these ladies do in the 30’s? Here’s a sample of one. I was going to Photoshop a Starbucks Venti Tea Misto into her hand, but then I remembered I have no Photoshop skillz.

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
