An Octopus and Cadborosaurus Get A Makeover

Posted on by Mel Z

gyro tightropeWe had just the most amazing summer ever, right? Well don’t cry for me Cadborosaurus, because the fall is just as stellar for getting out to play in Victoria.

I once made a promise to myself that I would try to discover ALL the parks in Victoria with my kids. That’s a BIG promise. We have a lot of parks, playgrounds, bogs, hiking trails in Victoria. A lot.

It’s especially awesome when you head to one of your favourite parks and find that it’s been completely renovated with all-new playground equipment.

See the new makeover to Gyro Park

Serena Ryder Under the Stars

Posted on by Mel Z

Serena Ryder took us by surprise a couple of years ago, when she stomped onto the radio and is now firmly planted on the top of our list of Canadian artists. My 9-year old girl (ok, me too) really, really wanted to see Serena Ryder’s show, so when we found ourselves with wristbands for the Rifflandia music festival this weekend — we had to go.

Planted in front of some large stacks of speakers (with earplugs) while her mom snapped away with glee in the photo-pit, my child become a real fan. A fan of live music, a fan of the crowd, a fan of the music festival and all it’s silliness and light-hearted fun. She became a fan of the powerful young woman that sang with soul, heart and energy.
