Winter Adventure!

One of the gifts I got for Brett this year was a mystery ‘Winter Adventure’. Basically, it was an evening on Grouse Mountain, either snowshoeing or skating and then dinner at the fancy restaurant on the mountain, The Observatory. I had to book it ahead of time to make the dinner reservations and so wasn’t sure what the weather would be like on the chosen date. The weather turned out to be: DOOM AND GLOOM. Lame. But still fun!

We went night snowshoeing, which I have never done before. We used our new snowshoes that we got for Christmas (Thanks Mom and Dad!!)

It was raining….a lot…..can you tell??

Still happy! After snowshoeing, we went for possibly the fanciest dinner I have ever had, which I wanted to take photos of but was too chicken to try. I think they frown on that kind of thing in posh restaurants? I had venison and Brett had lamb. Delish!

So, one more thing to tick off the life list: night snowshoeing!


Same season, new year…

I thought I would do a little Christmas Season Retrospective of the the 5 Christmases that Brett and I have spent together…quite a variety, as you will see:

Holidays 2007- Atlantic Trap and Grill Newfie Pub in Vancouver, Canada (No Christmas picture available so we will have to make do with a New Year’s shot instead)

Christmas Day 2008- On the beach in Varkala, India. That’s actually my friend Andrea in the photo….I didn’t have any with me in them, so she’s a good stand in.

Christmas Day, 2009, Swimming in the ocean in Auckland, New Zealand. To be fair, I only put my feet in. I don’t want to mislead anyone here. But I was wearing my bathing suit. So that’s saying something. Not going to be doing that in Canada on Christmas Day anytime soon.

December 23rd, 2010, Glacier Hiking in New Zealand. Awesome! That’s all I have to say.

December 23rd, 2011, Ice Skating with the fam, Richmond, B.C. Back in the Motherland for Christmas!


Happy Holidays to everyone!
