Although we had an early start to summer because of the great weather this year, I didn’t get a chance to do anything summery until the start of this month. It hit me hard when all the stores started changing to fall inventory. Made me realize that summer isn’t around for too much longer….
We were lucky enough to get invited up to our good friend’s aunties place for a fun day up in Furry Creek. We tried to squeeze as many activities in as possible and had a great time paddle boarding (eeek, my first time!), enjoying the refreshing water and even hitting a few golf balls. We had such a great time! Did I mention the views?
As I am away in Hawaii for a wedding and will be missing my mom’s birthday this year, I decided to take her and my mom-in-law to the Scandinave Spa Whistler for a relaxing getaway. It was such a rejuvenating experience. We followed their suggested routine starting from warming our bodies in one of their pools, steam room or sauna – followed by a cool dip and then relaxing in one of their relaxation areas. My favourite is the hammock haven situated at the top with a serene view of the mountains. It was the first time in a very long that I didn’t care about time and could really focus and clear my thoughts.
