Zip Line!


So my dear friend Michelle and I got up at the ungodly hour of 5AM to head down to Robson for the Zipline.  I think because it was drizzling this morning a lot of people backed out.  At 6 there was only about 15 people in front of us.  Luckily they let us in at […]

I was out […]



80.  See the new Woodwards development Alright!  I managed to cross something off my list from last weekend.  I went to the home of one of the boy’s lovely coworkers, who just moved in to Woodwards.  My god, the place is spectacular.  Her view stretches from Canada Place and the water, to Victory Square, to […]
