Canada Day @ Granville Isl.

Sunday, July 2nd, 2006 :: 11:55 am

There were so many people out and about on Canada’s 139th birthday yesterday! People were in red and white everywhere, and everywhere you went there were flags, pins, tattoos with the maple leaf!

I headed down to Granville Island for the afternoon with a couple of friends, as the Vancouver International Jazz Fest was also there. Enjoying the music under the shade with the cool breeze was definitely nice. There was even a family performing which had the son on electric bass, daughter on vocal, and father on guitar, they were really good!

Man on stilts handing out lots and lots of Canadian flags!

    N: You don’t need to look like a 色老頭 to ask people to take their photo!! I think most people who wear like this want people to notice them ba!

    CJ: When I saw your first sentence I was like, “Wow, CJ is so brave to go up there dressed like that to accept her graduation certificate!” :-P
