The ultimate sign that I’m having one of the busiest Summer’s I’ve had in recent memory is the fact that tonight’s “Celebration of Light” spectacle down on English Bay here in Vancouver is the only show, of the four scheduled nights, that I’ll actually get to see this year.
I have to say though, being my only chance to catch the fireworks tonight, I’m glad that it was Team UK who were on show – a team that hasn’t performed at the Celebration of Light festival since the late 90’s. I’m so used to seeing teams from Canada or China letting off their rockets, that a performance dominated by recognisable British tunes was a welcome change for me.
Setting up camp right in front of the English Bay bath houses with Carmen, TJ and Danica, we enjoyed a beautiful sunset as legendary local rockers 54.40 performed a free concert (put on by the good folk at Shore 104.1), behind us.
As always, I snapped away and came up with the following shots I can now share with you all.
And lastly, a couple of quick shout-outs. Firstly to Mum – Happy Birthday, I love you very much! And also to Carms for taking one for the team and spending the day on the beach reserving our piece of sand for tonight – love you too! x
