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

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
