Life is too short to worry about it
Summer in Victoria is short but Amazing a city surrounded by a temperate rain forest. In no more than 15 minutes you can go from city life to lake living. Sadly, summer is over. I spent most of my free time on a paddle board at Thetis Lake. A great spot to enjoy the long hot days of summer.
Paddle boarding is great exercise and for some reason helped alleviate my lower back pain. It must be all that core muscle building that stand up paddling helps create. My favorite part is the peacefulness as I leave the crowded beach. I am not sure what I will do this winter maybe a wet-suit is in order to keep me paddling.
