I found this fish on top of a cupboard in my hotel room. She will now be my mascot for the rest of my trip 🐟👣 . . . . . #travelmascot #travel #explorecanada #explore #explorebc #victoriabc #victoria #goldfish #2018 #vancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #westcoast

I’ve found that happiness here can be directly correlated to the volume of sand shaken off at the end of the day.

I couldn’t decide between the blueberry walnut baguette or the fig and cheddar baguette, so of course I bought both @justbreadbaby 🥖🥖

Take a look at the cards you were dealt... Is it a winning hand? ° If not, maybe you're just playing the wrong game. ° Life looks a lot different for me than I ever imagined... ° When I leave the house I need to pack a little kit to try to keep up with my pain. ° Lately I've had a few too many days where I dont have the energy to cook, and if I force myself, I'm too nauseous to eat anyway... ° But being in nature helps me recharge. ° Looking out over water soothes me. ° Sitting and just being makes me calm. ° So I'm learning a new game, a new way of life, so that I can play the cards I was dealt and still have the things that recharge, soothe, and calm me 🌻 ° *thing that made this possible today* chauffer (aka the bf), car made for comfort, padded camp chairs, and backroads ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° #explorevancouverisland #exploremore #explorebc #campingchair #vanisle #wanderlust #getoutside #adventureswithdaisy #adventureday #saturdayvibes #teawithaview #backroads #freshair #fallday #sunnyfallday #lakelife #lakegirl #lakedays #weekendvibes #migrainewarrior #chronicpain #spoonie #spoonielife #chronicmigraines #bestlife #selflove #selfloveadvocate #selfloveactivist #selfcare #nourishyoursoul

Not the day we planned but beautiful none the less 😍🍃🍂🌲🌞 If you haven't been, make sure you soak up every ounce of sunshine. Soon the days will be short and the skies will be gray 🌫
The day started with me driving away from a beautiful sunrise. Then I hiked up a mountain with my friend, Lisa. Now..I lay in bed because my old lady knees are not happy! . . . #sunrise #mthorne #mounthorne #vancouverisland #beautifulbc #nature #explorevancouverisland #vi #takeahike #dadshirt #oldladyknees #rememberwhyyoustarted #abovetheclouds #october #needsunscreen
On second thought, teaching Pippin to “go get” kelp might not be the best idea I’ve ever had.

We just wrapped up our staff trip in the Broughton Archipelago and it was an incredible 4 days. We had an encounter with Biggs killer whales that I have never seen before, lots of lunge feeding humpback whales and an amazing group of Pacific White Sided Dolphins. I snapped so many photos this week so here are just a few of the dolphin shots. More to come from the killer whales and humpbacks. #whale #whalewatching #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nikon #nikontop #nofishnoblackfish #noplacefortankers #nomorefishfarms #explorebc #explorevancouverisland #dolphins #beautifulbritishcolumbia

"What I love about exploring Strathcona Park, is the grandeur of the scenery and connection to nature. Going into the backcountry requires enough effort that you feel such a reward when you come upon a scene like this one, shot at dawn on Kwai Lake. The backcountry takes you away from the crowds and connects you to like minded adventures. I have always felt, that the landscapes of Strathcona rival anything you see in the Rocky Mountains, only without the crowds. Endless opportunities for adventure and rejuvenation await!" @heather.k.jones & 📷 #DiscoverCampbellRiver #bcparks #explorevancouverisland #exploreBC #strathconapark #mystrathcona #hikebc #neverstopexploring #lovetheoutdoors #tripplan #bcadventuresmart #ExploreCanada #pnwwonderland #wethriveoutdoors #sharvi
. The trees are in fact not the same. They range from green, red to orange. She said the waterfalls don’t look the same either. They flow differently, they sound differently . Being outside isn’t just about wether or not it looks the same. It feels different. If you listen closely, you feel closer to life. We spend so much time scrolling, liking and etc. But what about connecting, feeling and listening. . Close your eyes and breathe. Hear the sounds of life, the birds, the squirrels, the wind. This is better therapy than anything. Feeling alive, finding the beauty in the small things. Not focusing on what we don’t have or what we should be doing in life. . Find the good in everyday. Take the day and know your doing the best that you can. By being present. Tune into your thoughts, feel your emotions. Because that is rare, that is real and we don’t do it enough. I want you to feel, feel it all don’t be afraid. ✨

"Had a quick trip to Campbell River, we took a walk around the marina, got ice-cream from the Discovery Fishing Pier Ice Cream Shop (most insane portions it’s incredible!), and while the sun set we watched everyone fishing off of the pier (the most social fishing I have ever seen)... it was beautiful." - @hollylouwerse Share your stories with us #DiscoverCampbellRiver & #ExploreVancouverIsland . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @hollylouwerse 🌎@discovercampbellriver . #MeetTheNeighbours #Zeballos #VancouverIsland #tourcanada #explorebc #hellobc #vanislelife #pnw #keepitwild #simplyadventure #wildernessculture #roamtheplanet #storiesofthecoast #explorecanada #westmakesyouwilder #mycanada
Day 4 of having a flat: still have not figured out how to make it do the thing where it gets warm. Could really do with a dose of that Canadian sunshine.
