Week Twenty-Five

I was without internet for most of last week, which is why I skipped posting last Sunday. There has been quite a bit going on, though not much in the job line.

There was Greek Day, in my Kitsilano neighbourhood – a celebration of all things Greek with delicious food on offer, musical performances, craft stalls and people in costume, like those below:

There was also of course, Canada Day, a huge celebration of the date Canada became a country. I went down to Canada Place to the festivities. There were musical performances, the Canadian navy demonstrating how boarding vessels at sea works, acrobatic demonstrations and plenty of other activities, plus the Olympic Cauldron was re-lit for the day.

And later that evening there was a parade and fireworks.

Yesterday I visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge. It’s somewhere I’ve been meaning to visit for a while, but never got around to it. However this weekend the Suspension Bridge was host to some performers as part of the International Jazz Festival currently being hosted by the city, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to visit.

I’m not generally afraid of heights, but if anything was going to make me so it would be the way the suspension bridge rocks with so many people walking on it. Believe me, I made sure to be holding onto the railing all the way across! It was a lot of fun though, with gorgeous views and I explored every bit of the area that I could before sitting down to listen to the music.
