It’s December right before the big holidays, and the weather is getting rainy and cold out here in the Pacific Northwest. Time again to look over what I’ve done over the past season, which was autumn. Thanks to the never-ending pandemic, I don’t think I did very much. Just some end of season hiking and crabbing, and visiting some local places and back to Vancouver. Here’s what I’ve been up to for the last three months.
Autumn brings an end to the good weather hiking season around here. I didn’t get to any of the good fall foliage hikes, but still went on some good ones.
After hiking season ended, the winter crabbing season started in the Puget Sound. I went a few times, including to one new location where I caught my first Dungeness crab in the Puget Sound. I didn’t go as often as the prior winter though. The reason is that the cafeteria at my company offices opened up again, so I am less inclined to cook 😂.
In addition, I visited some local museums and sites in the area.
My only overnight trip is heading back to Vancouver during US Thanksgiving. I didn’t do much other than hang out with family and friends, partly because the bad flooding that cut off all major roadways connecting Greater Vancouver to the rest of the province. I did go downtown and took the Seabus to North Vancouver for the first time.
Overall, it was just an a-ok season for me. It doesn’t look like the pandemic is going away any time soon, so just have to take the precautions and live with it. For this winter, I’m looking forward to getting some skiing in. Got my season pass already, and hopefully I’ll get to my Colorado trip and get some days in at Whistler as well. Happy holidays to those who celebrate. See you next year.
