Harmony Arts Festival

Harmony Arts Festival is an annual event held usually at the end of July/beginning of August at Ambleside in West Vancouver.  It attracts local artists and vendors, and it boosts the community spirits.  It also brings people together to spend time on a sunny August evening.

This evening, we take a leisure walk along the seawall and enjoy the summer night.

Of course, there has to be food.

One of my favourites @@ but I have little strength to walk towards the booth…

Another great evening, watching Lions Gate Bridge with Stanley Park on the right, sunset on the opposite side.

A Surprising Visitor

The other day after work, we drive to a local beach and greet an unexpected visitor.

She is an elephant seal, and she has been at the beach for the last few days.

Plenty of sunshine for her to warm up.

Thank you for the opportunity meeting you.  Magnificent animal indeed.

Ambleside, West Vancouver

Ambleside, West Vancouver

Using the new handset, I was able to capture this beautiful panoramic shot at Ambleside yesterday.

Cloudy, but just the right temperature in the evening with a bit of the breeze.

We took our daughter in the stroller, and we put her on the swing, for the very first time.  She was very happy about it and was constantly laughing and giggling.  Unbelievable experience as parents.

Sunday Stroll

It is another sunny day, and we decided to go and take a slow stroll along the Spirit Trail in West Vancouver. To properly fuel ourselves, we picked up this treat:

It’s a DQ Midnight Truffle Blizzard, one of my favourites.

We stopped at the Spirit Trail entrance, and there was this post showing what was in each direction:

It was a perfect day out. Sunny, with a bit of breeze, and the temperature was just right. We both feel very fortunate to be able to live in such a nice place in the world.

There was a stretch where we had to pass underneath a railroad track. The bridge was right above us:

After the small tunnel, it was all beautiful view. First, the Lions Gate Bridge:

Here is another spectacular view, Stanley Park on the left, with the UBC area in the middle, and the water is Burrard Inlet.

Another view of the Lions Gate, with a float plane decorating the clear blue sky:
