smile on my face

…tears of a sad clown.

Just like Pagliacci did
I try to keep my surface hid
Smiling in the crowd I try
But in a lonely room I cry

eight twenty seven-january 24

Spending the last few days in Nelson has been so wonderful.

No snow falling but way less falling for me on the hills. I love this sport, this mountain and the lake.

I feel like I’ve gained 10 pounds in the past 3 days. There is definitely a thriving restaurant scene here and some impressive menus.

Here are a few of the pictures I’ve taken in the past few days without my camera which decided to die in Vancouver. Strictly iPhone from here on out, something tells me I will be buying some new apps soon.

four thirty eight-january 19

I am in Nelson now, my canon g7 seems to not want to turn on anymore so I’m forced to get busy with the iPhone. I spent the day snowboarding and made way bigger strides than any time I’ve tried it before. It’s the best feeling in the world. Loving this place and my homies right now. I’m truly blessed to be out here on the cheap, crashing on floors and couches, riding a loaner set-up and hopefully hopping on at a local night this week to play a set.

one fifty seven-january 14th

We had an extremely mellow day yesterday, complete with another burrito at The Shed and a nighttime nerd-out with Ben’s homie Bart.  A few beers, some delicious food and snacks and the end of the first season of Sons Of Anarchy.  This is a mix of some of the pictures I’ve taken with my Canon G7 since arriving on the coast. They appear in no particular order.

nine oh six

So apparently yesterday was a record breaking temperature for British Columbia. It didn’t rain until the mid-afternoon and we got a really nice walk in along the beach with Ben’s parents. I had a chance to try the burritos from a tiny spot down at the docks called The Shed, they were amazing. In fact, I’m hoping to have another one today. I took a ton of pictures with my camera but I don’t have a wireless network here so I’ll have to post those later. For now, here’s all the photos I took on my iPhone yesterday.

Ten fifty one

Spent yesterday getting familiar with the lovely town of gibsons, bc and catching up with ben and his wife dawn. The rain finally relented this morning and I’m looking forward to a boat ride we’ll be taking later on through some of the nearby islands. Finally had a shower which was pretty much the highlight of my life after a full day of travelling and no sleep.

Here’s a bunch of pics I took yesterday, expect more later on.
