First time in whistler area, first time fishing

@ Joffre lake. Caught fish(es) :)

It was really a beautiful day / Weekend, I should say. We arrived at the cabin yesterday night, as we passenger-ed with Will and his girlfriend Sally.

We had dinner with them in Coquitlam at Nagano before leaving to Whistler. The restaurant's sushi wasn't bad, but service is difficult when you're in a private room behind a curtain, how do the waitresses know you need anything if they don't come check up on you, and you don't have a buzzer.

We arrived at night at the cabin and it wasn't long till we were off to bed. We drove around half an hour or more to get to the lake for your fishing adventure. Parking was difficult, because it seems as though this is a popular place for hikers and campers. And there was a wedding happening there at the lake. See the mini doc, and the red carpet? Well it's not supposed to be there, it was built for the wedding and taken apart and away by the end of the day.

2014-08-23-24 At first we hiked together for a bit around the lake to see if there was a break off or another opening to the lake we can fish from. However there wasn't. Half the group decided to hike to the top lake as another half of us decided return down to the first lake to stay and fish.

I have to admit I got addicted to fishing once I learned the hang of it. I was asked by the guys if I've fished before. The closes I got was Animal Crossing experience. When you do fish in real life... it feels not that different, except there's more work involved. The vibrations however that Nintendo's game mimics are almost dead on!,letting you know you have to reel and tug and reel in some more to catch your fish! I caught about 6 fish on my first time fishing! half of them released back because they were too small.

The dumb fish: Well, there was this one moment of the fishing trip where I felt so bad, cause I'd lost Will's hook and weight, he didn't have many to spare. I thought I had a biter, and when I pulled it in the line got caught and we had to cut the line. Near the end of our fishing adventure, I caught a fish, where there was another hook and weight attached to it. It was the weight I had lost earlier! I did get a fish earlier, but this time he didn't make the escape, I caught the fish, and got the hook and weight back. The guys said: you let it go once, it came back so we have to keep it. Plus it seemed to have taken a bit of damage having two hooks and all in it.

The image of the fish below is perhaps the 3rd fish I caught of the day, but the first to get photographed. One of them was small and had to be killed because he ate most of the hook and weight, the second fought it's way out of my hands and got away quickly before the photo. This one stayed still for the photo and released soon after because we felt it was too small to eat. I'm super happy here as well, it's my first time fishing and I'm catching fish!


Dinner was delish! Thanks to Lionel, Carolyn and Roger's Cooking! 

The next day we went to Lost Lake ( which isn't so lost cause so many people know where it is ) to fish. Lionel caught a fish, Roger and I just spent the day trying to fish but mostly just ended up practicing our overhead casting. 

Thanks to my friends who taught me how to fish!

Life goals Achieved!

The Sinking Castle

In a foreign mall with mama j. Looking for a certain item. Giant comic books on the shelves. A taxi driver that was too sassy with us.

Then I was a photographer, looking for models in a mansion of friends, and he was there. the one I no longer care for, speak of, or think of. his family was there and there was just news of his aunts passing two to three days earlier. I was looking for models for a shoot of lingerie, models to spin and acrobat themselves on hanging fabric from the ceiling. Very cirque de solie. I ask my friends who would be fit, who would be able, and I look and look.

I somehow end up in a car with him driving, we're in is old 95 honda civic, the purple grey one. Something has happened to the world. And earthquake? Massive destruction? He drives us off a broken bridge into the water, for a few seconds we landed on a small concrete centre, the part the once stood to hold the bridge up in the middle. I tell him to stop, he continues to drive, we fall off and we see an end, a safe place to land, but the car doesn't reach there. We crash into the water I brace myself I held my breath but it's knocked out of me on impact, I take another as the car began to sink, and the water rose into the car, the windows begin to roll down. I swim out, I swim for my life. I pull myself out of the water like getting out of a pool I almost drowned in. I walk up these stone steps of an asian looking castle. I'm all wet, I look around and feel the water rising around me. He's still in the water, on his back, speaking to me. Conversing about the death of his aunt, and then questioning his own biological place, and I said he looked just like his mom, he is their son. I want to get to higher ground, but the castle IS sinking. It didn't make any sense why a concrete castle would sink. I was dreaming. I knew I was dreaming.

I wake up.

To the sound of the fax phone dialling.

So... I we were a little late to arrive at the start of this wedding and when we go to the table to check-in for the dinner... it turns out I'm not even listed. First wedding I'm crashing I guess. :D
The food was great! and it was fun with Clive as well and great table guests! Even pulled off a spider-man kiss with the bf and got the bride and groom and groomsmen to pull off the stunt as well.

Ice Cream and Pizza, Happy 3 Year Anniversary!

On this day boyfriend decided to take the whole day off to spend with me. ( I didn't know ) And wondered in the morning why he didn't wake up for work. We spent the morning Winners hopping- in other words, shopping at various Winners locations. I simply enjoyed spending the day with him :)
