Oh hello Mt. Bachelor 🗻 👋

A few weeks ago we took the Wahkiakum ferry to cross from Washington to Oregon. I had no idea that sea lions came this far up river 🌤
I don't have mushroom-i mean any room for negativity in my life.

Definitely wish I was here rather than stuck in bed! Poor Kevin was plagued with the flu this weekend and no matter how many emergen-c packets I took / immunity I thought I had from it since I had it last year, I seem to have caught it! Here’s to hoping it goes away quickly! *chugs more emergen-c*
The other day, playing outside with Jase while the babe napped, making snow angles and looking up at this. Perspective.
We’re pretty darn small in this universe, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a big impact. Impacts can be anything, but I hope to instill in my kids that they should be positive. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Give kindness.
The list goes on and on, but in this tiny world and the short amount of time we have in it, I hope you are off making an impact in one way, shape, or form.
Take me back to the weekend...
I’ve decided to take weekends off from posting on insta. This started as me forgetting to post last weekend and then seeing how I would feel not posting again this weekend. Social media is fantastic as a marketing tool, but there’s a distinct feeling of being chained to it: must post, must produce content, must comment back right away, must beat the algorithm. And keeping up with that 365 days a year is just not something I can do right now. In the constant struggle to gain visibility, there’s little room for boundaries, but you have to set them somewhere. So when you don’t see new posts from me on the weekends, now you’ll know why.
Coming back to our campsite after a successful summit of Ruth mountain earlier last year (May 2018)
Ruth mountain is approached via hannegan pass and over the almost dead Ruth glacier
Easy and gentle approach and great views of Shuksan and the Baker glaciated areas
For those doing the basic alpine course with the mountaineers, this one and Meany crest via Whitman glacier are good easy/backup options
A couple of hours late to the lunar eclipse😂
Today was nuts. I’m so exhausted. Eric and I did over 16 miles and more than half of that in snow shoes.
The clouds over the Skagit River didn’t want to leave but we caught glimpses of the mountains and it made for some interesting light. Time for lots of 🛌 😴
Thanks to our new adventure buddies for sharing in the journey!
, Paul, and Ellie!
Continuing on with our celebration of / shameless bragging about our students in our #movingon #motivationmonday
series... Meet Duncan. After crewing for some boats on the local #vancity
circuit, this intrepid Kiwi decided to get serious about #sailing
as a career! He took our #dayskipper
course in April 2018 on pretty #Paragon
and with that firm foundation under his feet, launched into racking up some serious miles with two open ocean deliveries. He helped bring #turnagainadventures
home to Vancouver from Hawaii, and helped another yacht make the trek from Darwin to Cairns in the land of Oz. Now Duncan is back in Auckland, New Zealand and working in the yachting industry as crew for Explore. This day charter company runs tours around the Hauraki Gulf on retired America’s Cup boats... and sometimes they even get to match race the yachts against each other for some extra fun! We’re so thrilled to see Duncan pursuing his goals and landing such a sweet gig right off the bat! Can’t wait to see where sailing takes him next 😎 Fair winds and following seas in all future adventures!
