Victoria band The Racoons… moved to Vancouver and changed their name to Jakarta.  But did you know?  There is a place already called Jakarta?  huh.

So change again they did… and got signed to Arts & Crafts… now they are called Gold and Youth.

Gold & Youth – “Time To Kill”

I’d put money on G&Y playing Rifflandia this year.  The boys are currently on tour of the Eastern US showcasing right now.  Lead singer Matt Lyall posted the top picture of their view from the Brooklyn Bridge.  Gorgeous.

From one bridge to another bridge a bit more local.


My little girl Madelyn turned 4 on Friday.  Coral and I took Friday off work for a family day.  It began with breakfast at Spoons with Coral’s family.  Then we bundled up into all our rain coats, gumboots, hats and toques and traveled north to Shawnigan Lake.  Our destination was the Kinsol Trestle.

The Kinsol Trestle is a beautifully restored rail crossing and part of the Trans-Canada trail.  You could ride your bike or hike along this path from Shawnigan Lake to Lake Cowichan if you were into it.

It was an easy and fun hike to take a 4-year-old on and we’ll for sure be heading back in the summer with our bikes and a picnic.

Then back to the city for burgers, hotdogs and ice cream sandwiches from Big Wheel Burger.  The best.

Saturday saw my family taking the ferry to Victoria and a big birthday party at PlayZone in Langford with Mads’ friends from pre-school.  Then dinner at home.

Sunday I hung out with my folks while Coral, Nana and Madelyn left for a holiday to Tofino!  What a busy girl and a busy weekend to turn 4!  I am actually excited to be back at work as this three day holiday was a lot of work!  What a great treat to have so much family in town to celebrate Madelyn being on Planet Earth for four whole years.

Go with yourself.
