Rockstar 2016!

We had a great time this weekend volunteering at the Rockstar Adventure Race. Injuries and family commitments prevented us from participating at the race but didn’t stop us from volunteering. We had a great time, volunteering lets us feel involved and connected with the race.

Storm Racing out did themselves this year. There were a few technical difficulties, including a devastating fire at Bark Lake just weeks before the race but I’m sure the racers didn’t notice a thing.

Our job this year was to man the swim area where racers jumped into about 8 feet of murky, fishy water looking for a silver CD. Some racers just loved jumping in the water and others not so much.

This year there was a family category. It was great seeing all the kids out trying an adventure race. This race wasn’t easy and although not everyone walks away with a medal, all the participants are winners.

 

Check out the video below!

We had an amazing day with two of Bark Lakes finest lifeguards, Laura and Elana. There were the best, professional and fun!

Perfect summer weather (for sitting on the dock in the sun) great racers and the sisters together, we couldn’t have asked for a nicer weekend!

Summer Evening Ride

I love riding my bike. We don’t do enough riding. This evening was a perfect summer evening. That sent of summer was in the air, that gentle air that is so light. Perfect for a ride.

The grain harvest is happening, and the soya beans are growing.
