This is the first video of Signature Series: a cinematic collection of moments captured in time... Link to the full video on YouTube in profile. In August we went on a backcountry portage in Algonquin Park. The warm rays of sunshine shining through gaps in the trees as we travelled from lake to lake. We finally arrived at our campsite as the sun was setting and unpacked our cameras before the golden light disappeared completely... There was a fire ban in effect while we were in the park, which just gave us more reason to appreciate the colours as day turned into night... The kind of sunsets you think; surely this must be the most vibrant pink that an eye has ever seen! Stepping out of the tent on the last morning, everything was covered in a bright warm glow as the sun lit up the fog which hovered above the lake. There is nothing more relaxing than morning in a canoe on a still lake, only the sound of the paddle gently entering the water as birds sing in the distant trees. We were very fortunate to have the lake all to ourselves...except for the ancient snapping turtle who stealthy came on land and tried to bite my ankle while my back was turned...seriously lucky he only scratched the surface. After the near death turtle incident, we enjoyed one last sunset and gazed into the bright night sky littered with stars.
In the last week or so, some people have made comments that have shocked me, made me stop and think, wonder what our role is in everything. The one that made me have a wow moment: “if you find yourself saying ‘because’...stop and BE the CAUSE and stand up for change” You are in charge of your dreams, your goals, your destiny. You are the one that makes yourself happy. Stop making excuses. Start moving. Don’t be afraid to try something new and get out of your comfort zone. Speak up against injustice. Educate yourself first, others second. Remove yourself from toxic people and surround yourself with love. This change starts with you. If I could tell my younger self that life will be easy, I think would be a tad sad. Your challenges and mistakes will define who you are and you will be a better person for it. And what you do with your time is 💯 up to you.

Having an afternoon stroll along the closed road of F570 to see Snaefellsjökull. After 5 km we were forced to turn back because of a heavy snowfall and wind - could not see over two meters. And now...the sun is shining.

Check out this big big girl working @nickoliak99519, she literally jumped into the tree to break him off. When one of your clients, becomes one of your best friends, you leave an open invite for them to escape the frigid Michigan weather and come to SWFL. This week was an absolute blast; inshore, offshore, backcountry, the annual @skinnywaterculture Christmas party, we had a blast. Welcome to the dirty south 🤙.
Imagine that you went to another country, assimilated into the culture, and then came home and tried to explain everything you learned and felt to your family and friends. They nod, they smile, they laugh at the right places. But they don’t really understand. We have had a drastic change in lifestyle over the last year and it has heavily impacted the way we live and behave. To others I’m sure this has seemed even more abrupt because they didn’t see the slow day-to-day changes that eventually accumulated into what we are now. That disconnect is one of the challenges of traveling - We are away from our closest relationships for extended periods of time, and when we come back it can be hard to make up for that lost time. The best way that we’ve found to combat this is to keep in contact. We typically will FaceTime or call at least once a week, and constantly text. We used to text each other all day when we were living near each other so there’s no reason we can’t do it when we’re further away. We talk about real things and share our experiences as they’re happening so that there’s no loss of time to make up for. Family will always be the most important thing, and it doesn’t become any less important when you’re out exploring 💕
