What did you all do last weekend? My sister was here for a long weekend trip and because we are having phenomenal weather this September, we planned a weekend of water- and beach-based activities. This started with a whale watching boat trip on Saturday. This was SO much fun; it's so amazing to see these creatures up close! We followed a mama Orca and her grown son (who was larger than her and led the pack) and her teenage son, who stuck pretty close by her side. Below are my best few photos but we were so much closer than photos will show. Yeah, I need a better zoom).

So, always up for a good time, my friend Alica and I purchased TeamBuy vouchers for a stand-up paddleboarding lesson and rentals with Windsure Adventure Watersports on Jericho Beach in Vancouver. True to form, we waited until the last weekend before the vouchers expired to use them, but I trust that Fate gave us a helping hand there because the weather was the warmest it has been all summer, and trust me, a warm day helps a lot when you're constantly falling into the Pacific Ocean.
