Watching some of the prospects play in the Young Stars tournament in Kelowna. The Time Without Hockey is pretty short but it feels SO LONG.

12x12: August

I failed and did not make the full twelve shots in August because I thought my roll I started in July was 36 exposures but it was only 24. But here are the six I did get.

lunch at Skihist Thompson Canyon
Jeff and I drive up to Quesnel every year for his dad's birthday, and this year I even drove some! Nearly two hours, from Williams Lake all the way to Quesnel. These photos are from Skihist, a provincial park we usually stop at for a picnic lunch because the view is incredible and also because good restaurants are few and far between.

Vancouver through the mist
Jason, an internet friend/pen pal from Chicago came for a visit. I showed him a couple of good beer and food places and we also drove up to the lookout at Cypress to get a view of the city. Unfortunately the weather wasn't ideal, but the rain & fog created a pretty cool landscape nonetheless.
go north. resting, waiting


good eyebrow day
I took this because my eyebrows looked good, but I always forget that the front camera on my phone is incredibly low resolution.

lunch at Skihist
Jeff & I took our annual drive to Quesnel to visit his dad. This is in Skihist, which we usually stop at for a picnic because a) there's approximately 0 good places to eat along the way, and b) the natural beauty is unreal. A big difference this year was me having my licence, so I drove all the way from Williams Lake to Quesnel on the highway!


[wo]man up
Spent Pride weekend with Liang, of course. We went to Man Up on Friday night; the show was great but we are both old ladies so we left at 1, as soon as it was over, instead of staying to drink & dance. The next morning we woke early, had brunch at Craft, and then spent some time reading in her building's rooftop garden before heading back to the Cobalt for the parking lot pool party. Bo & Su were going to join us, but Bo forgot her ID and they wouldn't let her in! So afterwards we all went for a drink and some food at the Union before heading home.
