In June the hubs and I were invited to experience @adventuraplay, an aerial adventure park in the small town of Woodinville. While we were both nervous, as the obstacles are all 50 feet off the ground, we had a blast. I totally recommend!

This amazing Chef's Taster dessert is the way to end a meal at The Lobby Restaurant & Lounge in the Pinnacle Hotel in North Vancouver. Other items I recommend are their signature crab cakes and if they have a locally raised pork chop special you won't regret it. *

This summer, on the @salishseatourco we toured the foodie spots on #orcasisland. One of those places was @girlmeetsdirt to taste their preserves and shrubs made with the island's heritage fruit orchards. Everything was so tasty I couldn't help but take a bag of goodies home with me for me and my mom. *****************

Friday I took the ferry to Friday Harbor for the Island Lights Festival. Guess who meet me at the ferry landing-Santa!. The lighting ceremony is super chill, in Island style fashion- and afterward you can have your photo taken with Santa (the real one 😉) at The Brickworks. You can also buy soup and hang outside with your pals around the fire pit. *
