Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

It’s that time again…

Every damn year. I thought by moving to the city I could somehow be forgotten. I’m still on the crows most wanted list. Yesterday I was trying to walk through the parking lot by GM Place and was attacked. Crow flew right by my head so close he brushed my hair. I took cover against a skytrain pillar but the crow just perched above squawking waiting for me to move. Thought maybe I’m paranoid and he isn’t really after me. Just seems that way. So I inch around to the other side of the pillar out of his sight. He takes flight and lands on the other side so he can see me and keeps squawking. Calling in for reinforcements I guess because a second one joins in. So I’m actually a little scared here now. the only way out of this situation is to make a run across the big open parking lot and I know from previous attacks that the first fly by is just a warning. They will beak you in the head. But I had no choice… couldn’t stay on the pillar all night. So I go for it. Arms trying to protect my head… trying to be aware of the bird without looking directly at it (to avoid beak in face/eye). He stayed right on me and got three more dive bombs in before I made it. Luckily no contact. So today. I’m over it right. They are not… waiting outside my office window giving me a ‘we know where you live/work’ look. photo

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
