Canada, I Love You!

Canada Day just happened and it reminded me how grateful I am to be Canadian and live in Pemberton. Here are a few shots from my weekend:

Cooling Off

The Summer in Pemberton is hot hot HOT and so the best and laziest way to cool down is with a float on something inflatable.

Here are the spots that I have been to (and want to go to):

One Mile Lake:

Mosquito Lake:

I have also found a few other ways to cool down:

  • Run through the sprinkler
  • Drink cold beer
  • Sit in the air-conditioned living room
  • Drink cold caesars
  • Sit on the patio of Big Sky (near the misters)
  • Get naked
  • Have a cold shower
  • Have a margarita
  • Stand infront of the open freezer

So, I hope you are having a great summer. Mine is awesome. How do you like to cool down?

Summer is here and I’m learning to bike (better), fish and other Pemberton activities. Follow me on my journey. Check back every Wednesday (ish) to see what I have been up to.

Gone Fishin’

Well, I’m at a point in year where I can choose to participate in summer activities or winter activities. This weekends dilemma was “Do I ski?” or “Do I go fishing?”

You see, I like skiing, I do. To me, it is a winter activity and should be done in the winter. Fishing is a summer activity and I am a sun goddess who soaks in every drop of D she can.

With that being said, Sunday was not sunny but we went fishing anyways! Shayne and I packed up the truck, loaded the canoe and away we went.

We arrive at Echo Lake after a bumpy dirt road adventure. Echo Lake is at higher elevation so there was still snow on the road.

Shayne and I loaded up with our gear and trekked down to the lake. Shayne carried the canoe and I carried everything else! We spent a few hours on the lake….paddling in the wind. It was fun but it was cold.

Nothing was caught but a lot of beef jerky was eaten.  Soon I shall try out my new rod. I’m going to try and ski a few more times this season (even though I’d rather be sunbathing).

I’d show you where Echo Lake is, but I can’t find it on the map. Maybe it is a secret lake?
