There we got to see the Graham Amazon Gallery where I took
the parrot, toad and butterflies photographs. I am still trying to find out
the name of the Black and Orange butterfly one I posted about
What do you think of my aquarium photographs?
Can you spot the Beluga?
Next stop Granville Island, right across from False Creek.
The fresh produce market and the myriads of artisans and artists
displaying their creations makes it one of my all time
favourite Vancouver destinations.
Strolling around and looking at all the beautiful creations
was really quite interesting. Everyone was enjoying themselves.
After a simple pique-nique freshly bought from the local
merchants, we took the Aquabus and got a small ride
across the water.
The plan was to finish the day with a bang! The Festival of lights
was being held on English Bay and we wanted to
wait on the beach to be there right when it started.
Came night time and we were all ready. Sitting together on a log front and center and enjoying the whole show from a vantage point of view.
I even grabbed Darling Daughter’s
camera to take a few fireworks shots🙂
The night finished quite late as we had to wait a long
while for the crowds to dissipate. Going back home took
us a lot longer than originally anticipated. I know the
children were tired. I can’t help but thinking
they will remember this whole day
for a very long time.
Pleasure is the flower that passes; remembrance, the lasting perfume.
