The Dream

If there is one thing we can all relate to, it is the notion of a dream. An aspiration that consumes us and leaves us with no choice but to follow through, making that dream a reality. Those of us that share a great love for the outdoors and the wild spaces still left on this planet understand the need to be out there. We understand that sometimes a dream is more than just a desire; sometimes it is a necessity of life.

On a quest to fulfill our need to be out there we have pursued successful careers in the outdoor industry, pouring in the same passion we have for those wild spaces in search of a purpose that will connect us. But we know that lifestyle isn’t enough, something still calls to us and when we can, we answer. This is an answer that has been 15 years in the waiting. This is an expedition that reminds us of how we got here, keeps us going through the dry times and fulfills that empty space within us all labeled ‘purpose’. This is what we live for.

On May 4th 2009 we will depart from Galiano Is (BC, Canada) in two single sea kayaks headed north for Glacier Bay (Alaska, US). We are two able, confident and experienced women, seeking to challenge our experience as guides through our own expedition of the entire coast we love and work on.

We aren’t heroes and we aren’t breaking new ground. We are simply two women following our dreams and in turn hoping to inspire a few other people to do the same.

This is how we live our lives the way we have always dreamed...

It's about more than an expedition, it's about more than a sport, it's even about more than a lifestyle. This is about dreams, this is about passion, this is about listening to that need to be out there. It's about learning how to 'fly'. 

We're calling it 'Crossing Borders'

The longest day... paddled until the sun set.

Dragging our boats over the kelp - BIG tidal changes right now!

They go on forever!

The meat eater redeems herself

That fits in our boats?

Our kingdom


  1. Christine and Angela, You carry my heart with you in your mango and hot pink kayaks! Following your dreams into the mango sunset and the glow of the beach fires. You leave your mark not just in the footprint of your campsite but in the overhanging trees, the wind and the waves, and yes in the pouring down rain. Feeling that magic moment when the grip of land releases you and you're floating once more, each time you leave the shore. Do you hear the ocean at night? Does it roar, is it a lullaby? Does it soothe and sometimes stomp around like a pissed off little kid? Are you sometimes surrounded by only water and you can't see a bit of land and isn't that an amazing place? Like being on another planet? My special comrade, Christine, do you know iff there are secret missions you must attend to? You must be verry careful! I vill keep vigilence for your every safety. Iss hard to speak faux Russian, no? Much love, you goofy girls! ~Louise
