Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

No more back seat

A lot of firsts for me this past year. The most recent, learning to ride a motorcycle, made dancing on stage in lingerie seem easy. 

I’m a pretty cautious person, so I didn’t take this lightly. I did the ICBC approved motorcycle training first. Loved it. 

Then I researched and found the best bike for me. I fell in love with the Suzuki TU250X, and found a deal on a 2016 one. But the only caveat, I had to ride it back from the ferry on my own for my first ever (non-training) ride. I did it, way out of my comfort  zone but had a blast. I just wish our summers were longer in Vancouver.


Here’s my bike one week in!

Love the bike! And so do others it seems, within the first week security cameras caught someone casing it out at 2am. They came back the next night with a pick-up, but we had boxed it in and put a sign up letting them know we caught them on film. They left.

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
