Port hardy launch. 120 Miles via kayak around Nigei, Hope Island to explore.

very cool. It looks like the weather cooperated. I used to fish in that area back in the day and the rain and fog were pretty regular features in the weather forecasts.

Finally weather that feels like Spring.

Seeing my parents for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Took them for coffee and double baked almond croissants at Thomas Haas and a stroll on the new trestle bridge walk at Cypress.

First paddle date of the year in Deep Cove. My partner has been struggling with her health for a while, we weren't sure she was ready. Just 50 minutes on the water but she made it.

Nice, what a day. I can feel the cold and smell that ocean from here. Can't wait to be home next month, Vancouver is the stuff that makes me happy 🌝

@Mic, doing the same this summer with my kids, Austria. Hope all the BMX riding helps them deal with Saalbach.

Beautiful, thanks for sharing, Niels. 

@hepcat: when will you be in Austria, maybe we can meet for a ride and some drinks? 

Current status: shoulder is healing, inflammation is slowly getting better. And range of movement keeps improving.

Goodluck with the shoulder rehab. There's a happy day on the horizon when you wake up and it no longer hurts.

PM sent about Austria. Don't want the masses to know about that secret place Leogang.

My son and I installed a new mailbox for my Dad the other day. He was quite happy with it. It even has a red flag that the postman puts up when there is mail. I think it makes him happy because it reminds him of his days living on the farm back in the day. He now lives in a subdivision.

I saw an old friend this morning dropping his kid off at school and he is leaving town.  It sounds like it wouldn't make me smile but he is cashing out of Squamish to live mortgage free in Kamloops and landed a 100% work from home job with good pay.  :)

This dude dropped his kid off at school, then left town? That's not right. Hopefully his kid can find him in Kamloops.
