Chapman Falls

Another view from Chapman Falls! One of my favourite hidden gem waterfalls on the coast so far, I don’t think a lot of people will visit this place.

Mushroomy Friend, Chapman Falls

Chapman Falls is a hike near Sechelt, BC that requires either hiking around or heading though an area with a lot of “Chlorine” warning signs. After working at a sketchy pulp mill for a few years, though, they didn’t dissuade me and the result was amazing after a short walk.

Tofino Waves

Just one picture form the best wave’s I’ve seen so far in my life. They don’t look like much from this shot but they were stunning in real life. Wave after breaking wave, foaming and rolling over each other in an unbroken procession of ocean power till they lapped at your feet or rushed at …

Egg on your face

You had to be there to understand 😛

Homesite Creek Falls

Another fantastic adventure with my favourite adventure buddy ever.

Sunset…. somewhere?

Not sure when I took this photo, but enjoy the spectacular colours.

Skookumchuck Rapids

A view walking back along the trail, returning from the south point at Skookumchuck, Sunshine Coast, BC

Dryden Sunset

Sunset from my friend Alex’s new digs. Red sun at night, sailor’s delight….. but that wasn’t true this night.

Brandywine Falls

Brandywine Falls with my favourite adventure buddy and best friend of all time, Alyssa. <3

Francis Point Peninsula

A view of the waves washing onto Francis Point from the south. There’s a huge stand of large arbutus trees here too, worth checking out for sure.

Sunshine Coast Fisherman

A wooden statue from a short hike just south of the Earl’s Cove ferry on the sunshine coast. There’s some nearby benches made from old snowboards that are quite cool as well!

Domtar Millrise

Yet another sunset from the Dryden Mill, winter 2020

The BEST girl

Marti is just simply the best dog ever and everyone should love her as much as I do. She might bark and annoy the heck out of you, but she’ll join you on your adventures and snuggle you at night. <3

Dryden Airport

Sunset from the Dryden Airport, Winter 2020


Sunset from Wabigoon, ON, and a nicely placed stop sign I saw on the drive home, and stopped to catch,

Terrace Bay Sunset

Another picture from my great geocaching trip in the fall of 2020, this was from the falls in terrace bay.

Geocache Underhang

My first 5/5 difficulty geocache, and what a view after some sketchy scrambling.

The Adventure Begins

Covid seems to be affecting everyone’s life in different ways. For me, lucky enough to have a stable, “essential” job in Dryden, Ontario, nothing really seemed to change for most of 2020 until I applied for the 2021 Race to Alaska. The Race to Alaska, or R2AK, is a 1000+ km race from Port Townsend, …

Cocaine & Waves

Sometime in the summer of 2015  – Tim, the fellow liveaboard sailor who had sold me my little 25’ Coronado sailboat, Seileaster, knocked on my hull one Friday afternoon as I sat napping below: “Ahoy! There’s a bunch of guys heading up to Halkett Bay for a get together, if you want to join.  I’d …

Banff or Bust

Once in a while, you have to just get out there and shake off the dust, see something you haven’t before. With COVID-19 in full swing and fall in full effect, Banff was about the farthest I could get with a single week off. Luckily, my usual trip tactic of “take the cheapest transportation possible …

Memories of the past

Pender Harbour had been welcoming the night before, lit up with the lights of the houses as Seileastar slowly chugged in, her little diesel turning over as smooth as ever. Nobody had turned up to oust me from the mussel-covered buoy that bobbed in the little bay where I ducked in, and so the next …
