Some Random Thoughts From #rcmpmusicalride in #yqr

A group of eight of us were very excited to take in the “Canada 150” Edition of the RCMP Musical Ride last night, not least of which because Shea’s cousin’s husband is an RCMP member who has been training for the last couple years so that he could be riding in the Tattoo for this […]

10 Advantages of a Seasonal Camping Site

I didn’t post over the weekend as we were camping at our seasonal site at Echo Valley Provincial Park. We’ve had our camper for three years (two full summers since we bought it in August of our first year) but so far, we’ve only done quick hit trips – a week here, a weekend there. Shea’s folks […]

Okay, maybe not… 😉 (Oh, and if you find […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Our Mexican Wedding (March 2003)

We leave for Playa Del Carmen in three weeks. Over the past few years, we’ve had a handful of tropical trips, we’ve been back to Mexico once but haven’t been back to near where we were married in fourteen years (this time, we’re at a resort just north of Playa Del Carmen, last time we were […]

Saturday Snap – The Doctor Will See You Now
