Live Your Dream. Sail around the world.

Toba Inlet

Toba Inlet – A long desolate fjord that goes on and on. Filled with turquose water and banked by extremely steep cliffs on either side. There are numerous water falls all of which are dried up at this time of year. We managed to stumble across one which was minor but impressive. It looked deceiving because from a […]


Sheridan Lake Water Skiing

A little video I put together for your viewing pleasure. It includes some of the fun we had water skiing and trick water skiing on Sheridan Lake.


Sheridan Lake 2012

Another successful Sheridan lake trip has come to an end. Its been a whirlwind. Plenty of water sports, socializing and of course, beverages. We try to head up to Ashley’s grandma’s place once a year to hang out with her Grandma and of course the rest of the Stobbart clan. Its always great to see everyone and […]


What a Weekend

Wow. I don’t know how to begin to explain last weekend except to say awesome and crazy. We had taken Monday off to create a 3 day weekend and although we had planned to leave Friday, thunderstorms and unsettled weather caused us to change our mind and we didnt get rolling until Sat Morning. Saturday […]


First Motorbike Trip of the Season

Busy week last week. Heck, it seems like every week is a busy week these days. And we don’t even have kids. To be honest, I’d say a good 80% of our time is taken up by work.  Not a bad thing if you love your job. Both Ashley and I have the attitude of […]


D Arcy Island

  Had a fantastic Canada day last weekend. We took off on the boat for a day trip with our friends Bay & Adam to D’Arcy Island. I had been there many years ago on my family’s sailboat. I was still a child back then and vividly remember the stories we dreamt up. D’arcy island […]


Week Interrupted

Well that was a rather interesting, hard working, week. We arrived Saturday afternoon. Sunday was really our only day where we did something including the pictures in the last post. Keats is really a beutiful place. We love it here. What we did realize is that we really don’t like working 10 to 16 hours […]


Week Escape

We’re back on Keats Island after a slow start leaving Saturday noon. The trip from Victoria was once again flat calm. We’ve lucked out this year and haven’t encountered any nasty weather. We’ll probably have the nastiest of crossings as soon as we’re on a tight schedule and need to get home for an appointment. […]


Back at Work

We’re back at work, slaving away but looking forward to this coming weekend of freedom. We’ll be off to Keats Island on the Sunshine coast again. Likely we’ll stay all week and work from the cabin. We tested our location-independence last year and found tethering via our iPhone works great. I originally tried an external […]


Hornby Island Shenanigans

Hornby always turns out to be a great time. I don’t know if it’s the people, beaches or sulfur water. We have two cabins on our property; One is a very small cabin with a loft and small living space. The other, is a double-wide trailer that has some customization on the inside and a […]
