Mosquito Creek Muni

This Saturday, I went for a little ride down the trails along Mosquito Creek, 5 minutes away from where we live. I took along my camera, and here is the result (click on the image for the video), filmed and edited in just a couple of hours:

Honeymoon in Maui

We just got back from a week on Maui, one of the Hawaiian islands. It was a wonderful trip, full of activities, such as:
- Boogieboarding in the ocean waves
- Watching the sunrise from the top of Haleakala crater (elevation: 10 000 feet, 3000 meters)
- Descending Haleakala crater by bike (starting at an elevation of 6500 feet), including enjoying the aroma of the lavender fields
- Touring Moloka'i Island and West Maui via helictopter
- Driving around West Maui, on the narrow Kahekili Highway
- Driving around Haleakala, on the famous "Road to Hana," a winding, narrow road (unpaved in sections after Hana)
- Sea kayaking and snorkeling on a fairly stormy and cold day - we saw a variety of tropical fish and a sea turtle swam under Yves!

Unicycling videos

As I progress through my unicycling skills, here are my 2 most recent videos. The first one is my ride through Stanley Park with 2 unicycling friends. I don't really appear on the video (you can see my shadow!) as I am doing the filming while riding.

In this second one, I practice my off-roading abilities through Moodyville Park, in North Vancouver.

Vancouver Christmas Parade

This December, Yves had the chance to ride his unicycle with the Vancouver Circus School for the pre-parade entertainment. They got to ride down the blocked streets of downtown Vancouver, with a group of acrobats, dancers, jugglers, unicyclists and an amazing 4-year old stunt bicyclist.

Weekend on Pender Island

Ron, Monica, Caspar, Heidi and Yves spent a weekend on Pender Island. It was cloudy and raining for most of the weekend, however this gave us a good reason to gather around the fireplace.

Tahira's Wedding

Tahira, the sister of one of my best friends from high school (Sumia), had her wedding ceremony this summer. This was a traditional Muslim event, and I had the opportunity to wear a Lehanga.
