After 16 years of living on Mayne, I finally made it over to Saturna yesterday!
I got a little braver with the drone today and flew it out of my direct line of sight (flying based on my screen alone). That let me get a little more range and fly out to the point.
I picked up a little mini drone a few months back, and the weather was clear enough today for a quick flight. My skills are terrible (I was mostly focussed on not crashing) and the cinematography is bad as a result. But here’s where I live!
That train ride was something else. But I made it!
Finally some warm weather. Had to do a ferry drop off on Galiano of the little one for a sleep over. It just feels like a midday boat ride.
My favourite part of summer is that it stays light out at night. This walk would be pretty perilous in the dark, but it’s so nice when the sun is just starting to set.
Apparently, I have a high school grad now! Reilly finished out strong, making honour roll and winning the Golden Hammer award for the TASK program. He’s already landed a job working on a build on Mayne and is really enjoying himself.
Baxter turns 4 today.
Came out even better than I expected! I’ve played around with multiple colour/fabrics with Timbuk2 before, but I opted to go clean and simple with this one… and I love it.
It seemed like a perfect night for some pizza, Baxter cuddles and movies.
It’s been a weird day! There was a 3.9 magnitude earthquake in the middle of the night. Didn’t cause any damage, but I didn’t sleep through it either. Then it was snowing earlier as well. Not enough to stay on the ground, but weird times.
I’m always amazed at how he still believes he’s a lap dog.
It feels a bit like Mayne Island is surrounded by a ring of debris. There’s so many trees/bits of trees in the water all over the place.
