Canada Day Journey

In some parts of the country it is already Canada Day but here on the west coast as I write it is tomorrow. Tomorrow I am going on what I think is the ultimate Canada Day trip. I am leaving  Duncan in the morning, heading to Victoria then leaving Vancouver Island for Vancouver, crossing the pond and stepping onto the mainland for the first time in best guess 10 years. From Vancouver I am taking the train to Jasper so I will be finishing off Canada Day toasting a beer on the train in the Rocky Mountains, travelling roughly 400 km across the country on Canada Day. Kinda cool I think.

Once I get to Jasper which is on July 2nd  I am spending the night there and then the next morning my awesome friend is picking me up and we are driving back to the Island. Again how cool is that? I am so excited. I am going to try my best keep the blog up to date but you might not see anything until I get back :0( all depends on service. I am actually testing my tablet on this trip to see how well it functions.

Any way I will blog when I can. Have a great Canada Day!


It’s such a rainy day today, nothing new here. So I thought I would share the story of my Lily that has managed to bloom through the miserable weather.

In honour of the rain today I bring you moss

I love the rainforest and the moss it creates

Makes the forest creepy to walk around in

I enjoy it very much

The Wall

It’s funny as I go to write this ramble a track from Pink Floyd’s The Wall comes on.

I have had the music on all night on random and The Wall seems to have been prevalent. I have been revisiting some photos. and came across this one.

i specifically took this photo in the hallway of the Empress Hotel where I got to stay at 19 years old for $18 when Pink Floyd’s The Wall was the film of the time. This hallway immediately took me to the hotel scene.
