Prague 2015

For a number of years Rob and I had wanted to go to Prague.  It’s a city steeped in history, art and culture.  Occupied during the second World War and again in the 60’s it’s not surprising that it now has such a sense of openness and friendliness:  everyone we met were lovely, helpful and […]

Barking mad – a day out with Drummer

Barking mad – a day out with Drummer

The weather this winter in Whistler has been way too warm and generally pouring with rain when it should have been snowing.  I decided to have a day out and headed over to D’arcy, 80kms or so North.  It’s a great drive and a fun way to test my new car.  Once there, we pottered […]

After a week of rain, the sun came out for Terry & Ray’s wedding at Nita Lake Lodge.  I did a quick walk around beforehand to check out the light and advised them that although it was sunny the wind had dropped the temperature to around -15˚C so they chose to have their ceremony indoors.  […]

Heli-wedding at beautiful Beverly Lake

This lovely and easy going couple wanted to do something special to celebrate their wedding which was to be an elopement.  They researched and booked a heli-wedding months in advance and on the day there were some nerves as there were low clouds and wind which threatened to cancel or postpone the flight.  Thankfully the […]

The Great Cheakamus River Extreme Kayak Race

Today I went to take a look at The Great Cheakamus River Extreme Kayak Race.  I’ve never watched a kayak race before and it was certainly very fun.  At this time of year the river is running quite high after some warm weather and snow melt but it didn’t seem to phase the men and […]
