Ren and Nick and more fireworks!

Ren worked for Land Design North with Monique, and Nick is our old canoeing buddy Kevin's brother. They've been living in Vancouver while Ren finishes school. We got to catch up last time we were in town, and we're glad they were up to some fun. We spent a very nice day at the kid's museum - being big kids - and the "BC Day" fireworks show on the water that evening.

Yes, more fireworks...

As the sun set, we knew we were in for a treat.
We carved out a nice spot on the beach and settled in.

The fireworks were set to an asian beat, and were the most asymmetric and artistic display we had ever seen. The crowd was subdued by the almost hypnotic trance music and gorgeous arangements. It was truly unique and kudos to Vancouver for doing something way different.

Of course there were a few of the boring old huge explosions that rattle the windows, just for good luck.

After replacing Blain's bike, we got to meet up again for dinner ala Ren. Her Indian twist on Carribean shrimp was amazing. We had a really nice visit getting back in touch with them. Thanks guys!!!

  1. Looks like you're having fun. The new mayor (Sullivan) just cut a large batch of P&R jobs and vetoed Assembly's equal rights amendment, so not missing anything here. Stay dry!
