Lawn mowing and Snowmobiles


Another great reason to live and work in Victoria.

Two days ago I was mowing my lawn to mark the start of another Spring. Yesterday I took my two oldest children on a one-hour drive up to the snow line at the Juan de Fuca ridge. (It's amazing what a difference 600m of altitude can make.) We met a friend there and spent a few hours messing around with his snowmobile.

We had a great time riding a sled and snowboarding behind the snowmobile. Being pulled uphill on a snowboard is great fun - especially with all the bumps.

Hanging out

We fired up the camp stove, made hot chocolate, went snow-shoeing, and enjoyed the alternations between sun and falling snow.

After a couple hours we piled everyone back onto the snowmobile (or the sled behind it) and my daughter drove us all back down to the cars.

Chillin'


It's days like this when I realize how awesome it is to live in Victoria.
