Well then…this is a life moment…isn’t it

When in doubt, skate it out

I knew it would happen! I knew if I came to the Cariboo I better drive around with skates in the car because eventually, I’ll come to a frozen, snow-free lake. And then it happened. Driving past Williams Lake I noticed people walking and…

A September roundup
