New Zealand or Bust

Wide eyed and bushy tailed three eager Canadians  booked a motorhome for a month to travel the land of the kiwis and good coffee... In the pursuit of family togetherness and adventure we  set out on the road.  

We arrived in Aukland just in time to have our socks blown off by the decision to make Donald Chump the leader of the free world... Holy shit, for real.  Big Mistake.  The impact of that decision is going to change the world... For the worse or better i'm not sure.  The only good thing I see coming from it is if it brings change and uprising from the people.  But it will be a long road I fear.  Even as a Canadian it leaves me frustrated and upset so I can't imagine how any intelligent American is feeling right about now.  These were the headlines from the New Zealand Herald...


Politics aside....  we had the most incredible time.  No plans, no schedules, just good old fashion family fun.

Surfs Up

Well my life glass has run over and has now filled ten more cups this week.  Cholo and I had quite the mind blowing west coast experience last weekend....  Boat surfing with our friend Blair, who owns Swelltime fishing charters, and new friend pat off the coast of Vancouver Island.   it  was totally bananas.    It's sometimes easy to take our stunning landscapes for granted but impossible this day.  As we headed out whales were breaching, eagles were flying, and the water was pure glass.  As we jumped in too hit the waves we were greeted by curious sea lions.  They circled us, swimming under our feet, nudging our boards and giving us many playful barks.  Honestly, a bit unnerving at first but thanks to the encouragement of our captain I soon began to realize they were like playful pups.  It was incredible. One of those days you just pinch yourself and wonder why your life is so blessed, and how you could ever top this day.
