Moving onto a boat!! It’s going to be a new adventure

20181020_155914

Perhaps the only thing harder to find in Vancouver than liveaboard moorage is an affordable detached home. Some of the marinas have years-long lists. If you’re lucky you might find a boat you love (or maybe can live with) that comes with that golden ticket. And sometimes, once in a blue moon, you just get lucky.

Handsome Hubby and I have talked about living on a boat for a few years. Often it was in the abstract – “wouldn’t be great to live on a boat” but we really didn’t do too much about it.

While the weather forecast wasn’t great (we need rain but it could have waited until Monday!) it didn’t look bad when we set out on Thursday. Continue reading “A boat, wind and an extra-long weekend”

Second Spring

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” ~ Albert Camus ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ

Such a pretty walk today in Port Coquitlam with the beautiful leaves everywhere. It actually did look like spring.

Running… Out of excuses

So for the past couple of months I’ve had quite the list of reasons excuses why I wasn’t going out for a run:

  1. too hot…
  2. too smokey…
  3. too tired…
  4. too lazy…
