Hours of fun exploring the beach at low tide. Miss M and N were on a quest to save stranded starfish, and collect 'unique' seashells. #getoutside#familytime#beautifulbc#beachlife#comoxvalley

At the North Island College Campus in Port Alberni today the temperature hit a staggering 35C, and it's only May 10th. With 4 fires currently burning on the Island, one of them being really close to the Village of Sayward, it's looking to be a really hot fire season. Remember, ony YOU can prevent wildfires. #toohot#wildfires

Got myself into a sticky mess this morning...helping Miss M with one of her science experiments, which has a sweet ending - shes just gotta wait about a week to get the reward πŸ˜‰ So, in about a week there should be 4 lemon flavoured rock candy...why go to the store when making it at home is so much better. Now to clean up the sticky mess before the ants get the message. #rockcandy#lemon#homeschool#learningisfun#sciencerocks

It's so easy to get lost in time when you're visiting Long Beach...this 'medicine's is free, you just gotta head outside and get it. There really is such a thing as "Tofino Time" and I love it πŸ˜‰...its time we all unplug from society and plug into nature. #tofinotime#westcoastlife#beautifulbc#getoutside#sunsandandsurf#longbeach#nature#naturalbeauty#driftwood

After a long day of working offshore there's nothing better than enjoying a local brew and outstanding sushi. Thanks again Crazy Ron for the wonderful food and outstanding hospitality, it's always a treat to stop by and take in the sights and sounds....until the next time. #crazyron#sushi#toughcity#toughcitysushi#tofino#beer

Lines in the sand. Take a bunch of seashells, add water and sand then stir with relentless wave action and you too could have your very own 'lines in the sand'. #getoutside#longbeach#westcoastlife#beautifulbc#linesinthesand

This view never gets old. After a rewarding vacation it's now time to enjoy the perks of my job, I can get used to this "office view." Hey Gerry, I'm sure there's something like this in Winnipeg πŸ˜‰. #getoutside#longbeach#westcoastlife#wickannishbeach#pacificocean

Yup....its been too hot, so I had to let the beard go for a bit. It's an odd feeling having the sun on my face, but hopefully I'll have the beard back on before 'winter's sets in πŸ˜πŸ‘ #toohotforacanadianguy

The Island of Tortola was devastated almost 2.5 years ago when a hurricane slammed into the BVI's. There's still a lot of devestation, but there's also a lot of work going on to repair this paradise island. Being able to see this place, interact with the locals and take in some of the island life, was truly rewarding. #britishvirginislands#familytime#getoutside#exploretheworld#wearsunscreen#islandlife
