Hoopin' with ZIRCADIA and a weekend in northern VT

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

The bf and I went to Vermont last weekend and on the way stopped to see ZIRCADIA. We didn't have much time, but there was enough to take a really nice walk along the water and try hooping.



Dana's a very good teacher, and was correct that given the proper equipment and coaching both of us managed to keep one up long enough for a photo.




What fun to finally meet in person - I think we've been corresponding for something like 3 years!

The rest of the weekend was spent in northern Vermont with his friends where we kayaked

found mushrooms

(the bf gathered an large quantity of chanterelles that we ate on Saturday but I don't have photos of them)

saw vultures

(there are three in this picture - can you spot them?)

went to swimming holes


had a lunch in Quebec


and played music and hung out with his friends who live so far off the grid they use a nice outhouse that overlooks their garden (the part featuring an impressive collection of enormous plants), and they use a bicycle attached to a pump to fill a water tank in the attic.

So of course I requested to get to do the pumping, because when else was I going to have the opportunity to do spinning for an actual PURPOSE? It took 175 calories to fill the tank from 1/4 to full, according to my Polar HR monitor. LOL

I also got to help pound an ash log for making basket strips, which was pretty cool.
