Labour Day has come and gone, and I've put my white pants away until spring. Every year summer seems to go by faster and faster and this year was no exception. Here's a brief synopsis of what happened this summer:
Dayna and I spent an amazing week with her whole family in Vernon, where her parents completely spoiled us. We stayed in a house on the lake, and did nothing but relax the whole time. I went wakeboarding every day, played tennis, golf, went on a wine tour by limo, and tonnes more. It was a great laid back week.
Labour Day my parents lent me their boat and the keys to their cabin, and Dayna, Speedo, Gayle, and I spent the weekend on Ruxton. We played a lot of cards, visited with neighbors, went fishing, ate fresh crab, and visited nearby islands.
Last Saturday was Man Day (you may have seen the banner on the Burrard Street bridge) as well as Radfest. I can't really put these two events into words, but am trying to obtain pictures. Stay posted.
My volleyball league is officially over and so it was time to take on a new sport. Dodgeball!. A buddy of mine started a team, and the first games are this week. I can't wait to get out there and get out some agression. I'll try to post pics after tuesday. Our team name is "The Boston Teabaggers". We're going to be bouncing balls off our opponent's heads, so I think it's pretty appropriate.
I spent this past weekend on Quadra for speedo's 28th birthday. The weather was surprisingly good on Saturday and I even managed to get a sunburn. In typical Quadra fashion I managed to: play horseshoes, lose a disc playing frolf, get really drunk, pass out by the fire, and almost finish a book. A group of us avoided the ferry mess by flying to Nanaimo and renting a car, it worked out amazingly well. Budget even picked us up from the seaplane terminal, and dropped us off at the ferry afterwards.
I hate summary posts, and I'm sure I missed some important details but now that the leaves are changing colours and Null Season is upon us I'll be sure to post more.
