Heart Creek Trail

To get back into sharing my photos I thought I would start off with some pictures from my most recent hike. I honestly haven’t had as much time for photography as I would like and most of my recent photos have been from going on hikes and it will probably continue to be like that for a while. So, I figured why not share photos from my hikes to also be able to share some of my favourite hikes that I go on this summer. I’ve gone on a couple other hikes before this one, but honestly, I didn’t Read more [...]

Happy New Year

How is it already time for the second half of the season to begin? Half a season gone means playoffs, provincial playdowns, and provincials are even closer.

Coaching and Playing Update

It’s about halfway through the first half of the season and it’s been flying by.

When there’s been a game or two in a week Read more [...]

How August Ringette League 2017 went

Last night the August Ringette League ended. It was a really fun three weeks of games. When I got to the rink last night there was a total of 13 skaters for the two teams out there playing with no goalies, so they had to score on garbage cans - which is harder than you think. We ended up having nine skaters and a goalie for each team during my game, which I honestly can't remember the last time I've played a game with nine skaters. Part way through the second period we started laughing at just about Read more [...]

Photo Challenge 2017 Week 16: Landscape – Nighttime

For this weeks challenge I chose a photo from vacation when I set my camera up to take a 30 second exposure photo. Originally I was out taking photos to capture a star trail, but it didn't end up working because the clouds I couldn't see when I set up my camera. Even though the star trail didn't work out I still got some amazing photos. Read more [...]
