she whispers -

wow. i'm impressed. we made it to st johns -

and then, she smiles.

on day 113 - my bad, day 114 - of our paragliding & supporting bus cross-country partnership, we arrived in st johns, newfoundland from tofino, british columbia - island to island, having stretched the myriad of canadian countryside in-between.

realizing that benjamin and myself have been consistent, direct witnesses to this stunning journey - through intense weather and varying personas - is both settling and empowering.

awash with all the support that has graced us through out the trip, we remain here in our bus home - preparing cheesy pasta with apple juice - low on drinking water, power nearly drained, and eager to rest. another quality day in the lives of the above + beyond canada crew. this day just happening to be the final flight day of an astounding distance-record breaking journey across canada.

now, a moment of thought pause and winding down in the beautiful haven of st johns before our drive back west.

wholeheartedly, thank you everyone for your attention, positive thoughts, and home-cooked meals.
