“Dances with Waves”, is the name of the sailboat that is going to take myself and my love around the world! I ask myself “what kind of story is this going to be”? It could be about the many struggles in life that we have been conditioned by society to think is the only way we are meant to live our lives. But instead, it’s a story of a Canadian couple that chose to leave the traditional way of living, drop everything and work as well and explore their way around the world by sailboat learning, teaching and seeing beauty and creating art along the way. What makes a couple all of sudden want to check out of a life style that was pretty comfortable and stable, to go off into the uncertainty of and excitement of not knowing what was off in the horizon?

Three years I was first diagnosed with cancer. It was like a scary dream you couldn’t wake up from.
The  strange thing about having cancer as it how changes you. You never go back to who you were. For me it took hearing you‘re possibly going to die to start really living. It’s so true, after the first initial shock and once the numbness wears off you really start looking around you. Food has more flavour, colours are brighter, you love stronger, you are more grateful and appreciate everything! I want more experiences and I want to see more beauty and capture doing what has purpose. I want to capture all of the beauty of mother earth. I want to do that with someone that loves and sees the world like I do. These videos will be about our sailing travels and all the excitement that comes with it. There will be challenges and scary moments but we will be living life to the fullest. And yes it is a love story, the love of life. 

In the hospital while I was trying to recover from an emergency surgery that almost ended things for me, and was very difficult to recover from, my husband went and bought a boat and posted a large picture of the boat in my hospital room. He said lets do this now, why wait? Very soon I started dreaming of sailing seeing the world and I began to heal.  Early on in our relationship he promised me he would take me around the world. Well I think he’s kept his promise. Ok so the decision has been made, we know what we want, now how are we going to do it? Well, you just do it, and don’t come up with a hundred reasons why you shouldn’t.
So we did it and its been full of it’s challenges like parts breaking while under sail and in infestation of mosquitos and leaks everywhere, but so incredibly worth it. Life is good! We are filming as we go, because I’ll have you know with an older boat and a limited budget it isn’t always just sunsets and margaritas. We want to inspire you through our sailing video adventures so you can see the world through our eyes! With your support we can make this dream come true and bring you along for the ride.
