Saturday Snippets: 16.December.2017

The days are counting down until the end of the year! Are you ready for the holiday season yet? We had our annual Christmas Date Day on Thursday (lunch out downtown, walking around seawall, taking in the Christmas lights, stumbling upon a Gingerbread House contest…), so we’re firmly planted in the festive season!

Here’s what caught our eye online in the world of climbing, eating, cycling and repeating. Saturday Snippets for 16.December.2017.

This week has been Shower Week, and we’re making good progress!

The shower box is basically done. The sides have been stained and sealed, and it’s just ready for the shower pan to be siliconed into place. Jonty has cut aluminum trim for the edging, and I will have to Osmo the bottom.

Jonty has finished the plumbing for the shower head, and mounted the shower controls onto the wall, as well! The shower head is specifically for RVs, so the pressure is low-flow, and there is an on-off toggle on the side, to stop the stream of water without having to turn off the water at the source. Super handy. Here’s a little video of him testing it out 🙂

Next on our list is finishing the mounts to keep the shower in place, when it’s folded away. Spoiler alert – it will involve inset magnets! Hopefully we’ll have finished pictures for your next week.

For the time being, here’s a few shots of what the shower will look like when it’s down and ready for use, and when it’s folded away. The shower faucets will be hidden away when the shower box is folded up. Hopefully we’ll be able to store the shower curtain etc in the box when it’s folded up, too.

We finally got down to the Canada 150 sign at Canada Place! We had to wait until the “tourists” left, then we had the sign to ourselves for a few brief moments 🙂
