Hung out at the beach last night trying to catch some meteor sightings from the Camelopardalid meteor shower. Alas! The heavens didn’t procure any glorious, streaking lights for us last night. Clouds also rolled in halfway through our gazing session…mother nature just wasn’t feeling cooperative. But, still had a chance to try my hand […]Read more "Shy Meteors…"
As I sit here writing this, my legs (and back, and neck, and…) are still burning from the bike adventuring that myself and friend Stephanie embarked on this past weekend. Vancouver to Nanaimo, Nanaimo up to Powell River, and then down the Sunshine Coast back home to the city. Beautiful. Early Spring touring means campgrounds that […]Read more "Sunshine Coasting"
I had the opportunity last month to exhibit my photography work in a local gallery, The Beaumont Studios. The exhibit, titled “Journey” was a joint show with another very talented Vancouver-based photographer, Adam Stenhouse. We had the support of curator Rita Minichiello of Vernissage Photography and Exhibitions, who was a great source of positive energy […]Read more "“Journey” (some thoughts on an exhibition)"

Vancouver’s Annual Hot Chocolate Festival is currently in town, and needless to say I’m a huge fan. The premise of the festival is the creation of delicious, one-of-a-kind hot chocolates in cafés throughout the city. Small business owners and chefs […]Read more "Tour de Chocolat"
Kits Beach is just down the hill from where I live, 15 minutes on foot. In the summer, it’s a muscle-head, tiny bikini, sweaty skin-filled kind of place. Kits Pool, for those who don’t like dipping in the ocean, is 137m long and is the perfect place for relaxing, tanning, and working on your Speedo […]Read more "Kits Beach"
It’s 5:45 am, and my alarm is insistently telling me that it’s time to lift my tired muscles out of bed and get moving. There have been earlier starts than this one, but any wake-up that takes place in the dark is a tough one for me. We hurriedly shower, grab a bite to eat, […]Read more "Elfin Lakes"
