I told them that saying "watermelon" would help them relax and look more natural. If your life goal isn't to find someone who looks at you like THAT while you're saying "watermelon watermelon watermelon..." I think you need to reassess your priorities.
The adventure life was calling so we planned a weekend adventure. In honour of adventure plans, here is a picture of my Yukon Hat mid adventure somewhere along the Dempster Highway. I am so stoked for the weekend that I actually thought (hoped) it was Friday when I woke up. ➰
I was disappointed when I did realize it was only Tuesday but it’s Sip n Stitch night so that’s a bonus. I’m finally back to working on my Flax Light for our #kal
. It was briefly in the time out corner because I made a silly error that caused me to take it back to the neck ribbing #knitterproblems
. But adventure time also means relaxing time in the hammock knitting so I am confident I can get back to where I was in no time.

[3/3] Sandy finds me curled up inside the tent hiding from the bugs and grieving over the loss of my lens. He coaxes me out with s'mores. It's my third weekend in the backcountry and my body isn't immune to it. But I believe that a certain humbling from time to time can be a good thing. With some food and water in me, my heavy heart begins to lift. By some miracle, at the end of the night, I am back to feeling grateful for everything in the universe.
[2/3] Within 20 minutes into the trip, part of my camera lens falls into Rain Lake. We search, the bugs feast, and then the torrential downpour comes. We can't find it and at this point, I am crying and ready to go home.
From Rain Lake we portage into Sawyer Lake and then into Jubilee Lake where our campsite is. We paddle into an opening and stumble into a special moment - a moose in the water munching on some lily pads. We eat our clif bars from a short distance away, and watch. Meanwhile it pays us no attention.

Algonquin has over 2,400 lakes. I can't believe I'm in one of them!
We arrived in Montreal today! We checked in to our Airbnb in the Mont-Royal neighborhood and met the lovely owners. Guys, this is our first Airbnb! It seemed like everyone was doing it and it felt right to make Montreal our maiden stay. We researched the best places to stay and we found a gem with this two level home on a quiet street. We are just a street away from a strip of shops and restaurants and just a few blocks from the metro. Has anyone been to Montreal? Would love to hear your thoughts on this city! A few observations on our half day here today. 1-Everyone speaks French 🇫🇷 but is very quick to switch to English when they realize you know zero French. 2- Biking 🚴♀️ very popular here. 3- lots of smokers. 4- lots of day drinking at restaurants 🍷 🍺! 5 - Lots of pretty parks! We explored one today and have a few more on our list. I believe Old Montreal is the plan tomorrow. .

On the last leg of the Garibaldi Lake trail you get glimpses of the aquamarine water glittering like a jewel through the trees. Gets me every time. #glacierlake
Magic waits beyond every unexplored corner 🔮
Coconut curry on the @trangia_sweden
stove. Super quick and easy to make and this stove packs up so small/is super light. Camp meals for days as we make our way from Halifax to Vancouver. Time to test it out in Jasper ⛺️🌲☀️
We’re open daily 10am to 5pm. Come by and check out the perfect travelling companion, the Pedego Latch folding bike. Ideal for boats and RVs. #hellofun
Did someone say....HIKING SEASON?? ⛰🌲☀️🏕
& then I realized that during the storm there was sunshine in my soul🖤 Jasper, it’s been a slice! Thank you for the endless adventures, the fresh mountain air, all the memories, and the daily life lessons. I will see you again soon✌️
Fall in love with your life, fill your lungs with mountain air, and fill your heart with happiness🖤 PSA: never leave me in charge of navigating with a map 😂 #peytolake #columbiaicefields
Sometimes a wrong turn can have a beautiful result🌲
Refresh in nature - let the spring heal your illness and ailments, relax your mind, and let your soul be free🌲 (The source of the Miette Hotsprings, perfect on a rainy day).
Wedgemount Lake was one of the most spectacular hikes I have ever done! I’ve written some words about it because I was that impressed... the link is in my bio ✨
