I’m not getting out near what I want to these days and it looks like it’s going to be a few more weeks before I really get a regular opportunity to do so. New house = Reno’s and time sucks. The purpose of moving was ultimately to be able to create more time for the family and more hiking. Short term pain for long term gain. . . This paddle was from a couple weeks ago while we sat I between homes and had a little bit of down time. . . . #paddle #kayak #oceanlife #lagoon #gtfo #getoutside #explorenanaimo #islandvibes #vancouverisland #maketime #mentalhealth #wellness #westcoastlife #lostinthebush

Yesterday I had a chance to watch the A23s and A25s foraging for salmon. They were spread out in the calm waters of Blackfish Sound with only a few kayakers watching them. This particular image is of A60 (Fife ), the younger brother of a whale named Corky that has spent the last 50 years of her life in captivity (currently down at SeaWorld San Diego ). I often wonder about her capture that fateful December day back in 1969 - how different would this matriline be from the A23s we’ve come to know and love today if Corky was still roaming these waters with her younger brother and family. On a different note, what a perfect pair of matrilines to introduce @wildforwhales to the northern resident community! . . . . #killerwhale #killerwhales #whale #whales #dolphins #cetacean #photooftheday #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #wildlifephotography #blackfish #blackandwhite #explore #adventure #getoutside #resident #sea #ocean #vitaminsea #naturephotography #wildlife #instagood #instadaily #beautiful #naturephotography #marinemammal #vancouverisland #britishcolumbia #sharecangeo #EarthCapture @bbcearth

Yoga always teaches us that as much as we exist in this world, the world exists within us too. Take a deep breath and become present in your mind and body, to see all that you’ve ever wanted in life, already exists within you.

Our 4th stop on Vancouver Island took us to this incredible location! We had so much fun playing with chickens and creating this fantastic set. I have to say this is one of the most beautiful log homes I have ever seen, and the family who lives here are just as wonderful! This stop was quite an adventure as we were supposed to spend the night here before the session and just prior to our arrival, a tree fell over the road just before the house cutting power to the whole neighborhood. We ended up spending the night in a vacant lot nearby, (in our truck and camper ), while hydro fixed the problem. On the day of the session we were dodging raindrops, but that is life on Vancouver Island, and we still managed to create magic. Thank you so much for having us out. We loved meeting you all. #bcfarmandfamilyphotography #farmily #petphotographer #petphotography #loghomes #VancouverIsland #lab #horses #eventing #jumpers #farm #farmphotographer

Desk complete. Client was struggling with choosing a wood tone stain for the desk that wouldn’t get lost in the colours of the floor in the room it will be in. So they decided to go bold and different, choosing this worn denim look (stain colour is “Worn Navy” ). Definitely different but it turned out great and complements the metallic blue epoxy inlay they asked for in the top of each piece. What do you think? Yay or nay? #customerisalwaysright . . . #islandwoodwork #woodworking #woodworker #custommade #custom #desk #deskbuild #handmade #epoxyresin #epoxy #vancouverisland

Who else loves fall🍂? I am so ready to welcome in a new month, new season and new goals! I love living in the #PNWBC where we get to experience all of the seasons. I feel like it’s the perfect time for me to embrace my new running 🏃‍♀️ routine. Mornings are crisp, fresh & cool while evenings are warm, soft and relaxing. The sneak peek for my new R&R (running & resistance ) group is officially open for you to check out (link in my Bio ). This program is open to runners (beginner 🙋🏻‍♀️to advanced ) and includes 60% resistance training and 40% running training . In addition to the incredible results we will get from precision resistance training, we’ll also be learning the proper technique for running (guided by our professional running trainer ) which makes running more effective, produce better results and therefore making running more enjoyable. 🤨 YES more enjoyable! This is one of our funnest programs of the year and at the end of our training for 30 days, we’ll be ready to run a 5K race (and we’ll be having a virtual race that we get to do together )! DM me (or check the link in my bio ) to jump in the sneak peek group so you can try the sample workout & see what all the hype is about 👟⚡️.

💥SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT💥 The past few weeks I have been working extremely hard to bring you guys something I know you’ll all love. My current clients especially will love this. This journey has brought a lot of highs and lows into my life but each day I’m trying to progress and move forward with everything I do. To each one of my clients I say this👇🏼👇🏼 “I want to deliver as much value, knowledge and excitement to training as humanly possible.” This is an absolute fact. 💯 I could be happy with what I have I could be happy with the systems I have in place to help the clients I have and just relax here. But my promise to every single one of you is that I OVER deliver. This is not another free challenge. This is not me opening up a couple more coaching spots. Stay tuned. - teamPA 📷: @m .mason.carter

New scuba video up on YouTube 🤿! This weeks video showcases my first experience cold water diving in the ocean 🌊 While visiting Vancouver Island for a wedding in 2018, my friends and I booked a charter with Rockfish Divers in Victoria, and had a super rad time exploring some dive sites around Sooke, British Columbia! It was challenging as I get cold VERY fast (ughhhhh🥶 ), but it was on my bucket list to dive a real kelp forest… so that’s what we did! No good quality photos of the dive, so here’s one of me exploring the shores of Tofino in my natural habitat for attention💛.

Time can feel as if it’s passing so quickly, like a rushing river, but maybe it’s because in our minds we often live so many years ahead or behind of where we actually are… #explorebc #explorecanada . . . Photo by findingepic

Gotta Fuel Yourself Pre-hike 😋⁣ ⁣ You have to stop here in Sooke, on the west coast of Vancouver Island if you’re exploring other parts of the Island. ⁣ ⁣ The food was so so so good and the spectacular views speak for themselves! ⁣ ⁣ Whoops I ate too much good food before our hike of Mystic Beach 😋 so lucky I didn’t get any cramps 🤪 How do you treat yourself when you go hiking? 📍West Coast Grill at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort

Dreaming of light-filled evenings on the West Coast... ✨🍂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s safe to say that I fell in love with Vancouver Island’s rugged coastline and diverse landscapes — a place I could see myself coming back to again and again.
