Turning 40

A couple weeks ago I turned 40 years old. It’s kind of a weird feeling turning 40… and only because I vividly remember when my dad turned 40. I remember what we did for that party and who was there and some conversations that were had… and to be honest, it didn’t seem that long…

Cobourg Beach

Last Monday was the Victoria Day holiday and with nothing planned we thought it would be fun to head down to Cobourg and explore the waterfront. The morning started out sunny and warm, but by the time we got down to the lake it was quite cloudy and super windy… which made for some better…
