Cheers and support at Victoria Ironman

Great job running this race yesterday @sophiachadwick! There is always so much more going on for athletes in their lives and it fills us with joy to know we can cheer and yell and train with and support the athletes in Victoria and on the @humanpoweredracing team and in our lives. Great race everyone!

Dragon boats on the Gorge

What a beautiful morning of dragon boat racing (super sprints) on the Gorge. Still going too. Great to hear the drumming and cheering and splashing and see the teams paddling so intensely. Very cool community sport.

Our hearts are full seeing all the young athletes race

Our hearts are full seeing all the young athletes race this morning at the Human Powered Racing West Shore Youth Triathlon. Congratulations athletes! And great work supporters. Also very cool to see Karsten Madsen out supporting young athletes and handing out medals and sharing some words of inspiration with us at the end.

Taking a break at Clover Point

Everyone needs a break. What a great time to be on the water. River otters out and about too. Love that we share these spaces. So grateful to be here on the Salish sea. Happy Friday everyone.

Celebrating a Decade of Adventures

So thankful that 10 years ago today you decided to hop on a plane and make the huge journey here to Canada! I am the luckiest guy in the world to have met you and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us❤️

Dallas Road with Charlie the Dog

Time spent on Dallas Road is always good, and even better with good friends. Charlie and @Michbokor are out soaking up some mild weather this Friday. Great day for a walk. Wonderful to meet you both.

Do we love our Oak Bay neighbours or what?

Yes, we do enjoy drinking coffee at Discovery Coffee (our neighbour) and yes, we do enjoy Yonni’s Doughnuts, and yes, we do think the paintings at Discovery are always very cool. Cozy evenings like these help us forget how much we love summer in Oak Bay.

These early evenings feel like winter, but roses blooming do not! Happy sunset friends. #explorevancouverisland #sundown #vancouverislandsunset #westcoastbestcoast #westcoastsunset
