While in Banff did some hiking and came across this view, what was amazing was now quick it go dark after this pictures was taken.

Warm Run

#beatyesterday #garmin May look cold but what actually a pretty warm run. Nice Starbucks Juniper Latte at the end.

Banff – A Little Break from Everyday Life

Well it’s November, that time between school start up and Christmas. Halloween has gone and of course we have snow on the ground, time to take a break. Often this time of year I try to take a break such as an extra long weeked or even a whole week away from the humdrum of…

Winter Arrived

As well as the clock falling back an hour last night, winter arrived. We had a little snow arrive on Friday, but last night the rain that was falling turned to snow. So likely that’s it, all that will be be here until the spring. Yuck.

Magoo’s Landing

That was a tough. Did some major work in hills last night and almost won a turkey.


Been a while since I posted a blog post, the last one was the start of our trip to Europe this past summer, then suddenly the trip was over and we where home without any other posts being made, sorry to everyone who was expecting a Bowen day by day of the UK and Italy….
