This past weekend I decided to take my level 3 with ORCKA after seeing that Gayle from Sometimes Eventful posted about the class that she took. I didn’t know that there was a relatively new place teaching ORCKA classes nearby. It all comes naturally. I can’t recommend them enough! I had always wanted to finish… Continue reading ORCKA
A while back I bought a second hand canoe from a friend. I was thinking of getting a nice lightweight one, but the budget just isn’t allowing that right now. So here I am with this new-to-me canoe! A friend had asked me if I had checked yet to see if it floats. Of course… Continue reading Getting ready!
What a fun place to hang out for the day! Recently one of my friends let me know that she’s never hiked in Hamilton. So Hamilton being so well known as the Waterfall Capital of the world, I figured we had to go to one of it’s popular waterfalls. The hike didn’t disappoint! Although we… Continue reading Albion falls

At least the places where I wouldn’t have to drive that far.… Continue reading Long weekends

This is my second time doing this and everyone else enjoyed it so much that we’ve decided to try and turn it into an annual event. It was a scorching hot… Continue reading Tree Top Trekking
I’ve been meaning for days to write a little smidge about my recent ladies trip to Algonquin… while I haven’t had the time, I do want to mention another product that I found very helpful. I’m not one to talk about products like I’m selling them, but if I really like something, then I like… Continue reading Another product I’m glad to have
Anyone who knows me knows I’m a big advocate of pfd’s… heck any safety measures depending on what you’re doing.
