Baniener Days: More Sushi and Whistler.

Thursday morning, Carrie and Annina went to Bikram yoga. (Carrie was able to secure Annina a free week pass!! So, they may go back again on Tuesday.) Carrie and Annina came back here after yoga and they were still sweating. Good work ladies! We went for sushi and then walked down to English Bay where we were going to try paddle boarding. Unfortunately, the wind was blowing towards the shore. This would have made it difficult to move anywhere paddling. The guy suggested going to Granville island where it is more protected but we had the vision of paddling to third beach and back... I mean I had the goal of paddling to third beach and back in my head. So, we decided to lounge on the beach and see if the wind died down. After sunning for just over an hour the wind hadn't died down so we came up with another plan. Next Tuesday, while they are at Bikram, I will run down to English Bay and check the wind. If it is too windy we will go to Granville island and rent the boards when they get back from Bikram. Ok- new plan made... we could relax in the sun a bit longer!

Friday we got up and drove to Whistler. We went for a run on the trail near Rainbow park and Alta Lake. I didn't have such a great run but Carrie and Annina breezed through it. We swam in the lake and rested in the sun (we are very good at this). We also ate fruit and drank water! Good for us!

We went into the village and had a late lunch, a tour of the village and some ice cream. Carrie also got the running skirt her and Amy wanted at the LuLu store. (She is so cute!) There were a lot of people doing the downhill mountain biking. It looked pretty crazy. I think Annina will be back to try it one day.

On our way out of town we stopped at Annina's friend's place. There were eight Swiss German's who rented a really nice place with a hot tub in the back yard for two weeks. They all brought their bikes from Switzerland and were doing lots of riding. It is too bad Annina didn't get a chance to ride with them - maybe Tuesday? I can't believe our time is almost up.

On to the next adventure: The Island.

JAX Beach Summer School 2018

Our summer adventure began by leaving Frank Hurt a week early, the same time as the students. We drove to Bellingham and stayed at the hotel by the Slo Pitch. We had snacks and went swimming. Step one: Get through the border was done. The next mission was to make it through the Seattle traffic. We also stopped off at Bellis Fair and got a new hat for Big Boy as he left his in grandma's basement before we left. 

 In Seattle we stayed by the airport and found Angle Lake. It has a beach, BBQ spots, a play park, and a water park... and washrooms. I didn't have my suit on this time, because we thought it was just a water park, but next time, I am jumping in. Big Boy didn't want to go in without me.

We watched the weather forecast closely to make sure we would have some nice days in Seaside. We had until Friday to cancel. The weather looked good until the day we left so we went for it. The morning we woke up to leave (Tuesday), the weather app changed and gave us two bad days. Too late now! Off we went to Seaside. Carrie was already on her way but we did get an earlier start that I thought we would. We left at 7am. Here is the boy before we left - sad faced and with Bear. 
The City Center Motel. We were in unit 1 beside the pool. This was a great unit for us. Number 6 on the other side of the pool looks nice too. I thought we were going to miss having the little cottage one - but this was much nicer because the boy could have his bath.
Tuesday, we arrived and headed straight to the beach to play. We did wave jumping, beach bowling, and we made some roads and tunnels. Christian found a buddy his age and they had a great time chasing each other and playing.

Carrie found us! She …

End of Summer Adventures aka: Running Away from Project "FIX THE PATIO"

Bellingham  Well, this sucks... they are jack hammering outside our patio door. We better run away. Where can we go? Let's go to Bellingham and then back to Seattle and go swim in that lake again. 

Seattle  It was super hot the day we got to Seattle... we decided to wait to go to the lake until the next day... and it started raining?! One day we will spend the day at the lake and make a bbq. We did the second best thing and took the train to the city. Christian loves the train. 

Whistler  We came home and got a nice bamboo fence to block out the views, bring us some shade, and give us some security.

But.. the drilling continued on Monday... and got closer! Off to Whistler.
