Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Around the world part 11 – Scotland, St. Andrews

For our last full day we rose early and took the train from Edinburgh to St. Andrews. The plan – Mike golfs while I explore St. Andrews.

Once we got there Mike was like a kid in a candy store. We were not sure if he’d get to play at all with the 50km hour winds we had the day before but the golf gods were on his side. The sky opened up for the four hours that he golfed. Sun was shining and he was able to golf the old course!

The old course is the original over 600 year old course where the Open Championships are held, while the new course is over 100 years old.

Mike and his caddie Nick who has been a caddie on that course for 50 years.

         I dropped off Mike and explored St. Andrews…

Did a little slo mo chariots of fire run on the beach (where the movie was filmed).

Then stopped in for a tea at a little cafe that boasts being the place where William and Kate met (for coffee).

Then I explored the ruins of St. Andrews castle…


    I wandered the cute streets of St. Andrews before I met Mike back at the 18th hole for a pint. 

One last morning view from our place in Edinburgh and we are off for our journey home.

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
