August 24, 1996...I was doing this:
My Aunt Kim and Uncle Brian took me on a vacation with them to Nanaimo, BC for a Whale Watching Excursion. I was big into Whales at the time. Like, I woulda given my life to save one. Especially Keiko. Anyways, we were beach combing, and I went to walk across what seemed like a solid flat pile of dried seaweed. WRONG!! It was a waistdeep valley of rotten seaweed, and I FELL IN! I felt snakes swimming past my legs, almost got sick from the smell, and worst of all, lost my one of my only sandles. The above picture is of me and Uncle Brian trying to quickly find my sandle. I was nearly in tears over the grossness of the situation. I have a pretty weak stomach. Aunty Kim redirected her photoshooting of the lighthouse to lovingly capturing my embarrasment with pointing&laughing and photos(which she chose to share out our wedding! LOL). Hehe. I now find the following photos a bit more funny&embarrassing than the above noted. Lol, this is on our trip. It was 1996, I was 15 years old. I had a perm and weird bangs. And I was in that "awkward" development stage...if you know what i mean, lol. And yes, I was totally wearing a whale t-shirt, fake men's workboots (ankle cut!) and homemade plaid boxershort shorts. Remember those? lol.
