I remember distinctly my friend’s laugh. She’d asked what I was doing for the weekend and I had responded with a “not much”. You see, she didn’t believe me… I was always doing something. Turns out she was right… when the rain stopped Saturday just after noon and the forecast was for 24 hours of clear weather before the next storm, my husband and I packed up the truck, headed north, camped out by the lake and went for a 50 kilometre bike ride on Sunday morning – arriving back at the truck just in time to feel the first rain drops of the next storm.

Though we’ve moved across the country, first to Calgary and then to Victoria, and are now happy parents of a very active seven year old boy, not much has changed. My mom still never calls on the weekend, knowing full well that we’re probably off on some adventure (often without cell service). Life is what you make of it and for us it’s an outdoor adventure! Whether it’s skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer, weekends will find us out of town enjoying whatever nature has to offer. And wherever we go, you’ll be sure to know that my camera’s not far away.
