It's Lantern Festival Time!
There are four different locations for the
lantern festival. We
picked the Strathcona/Chinatown tour which ends at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen
Classical Chinese Garden. We picked up the parade on route but it
wasn't particularly large or well lit. Us with our two $5
lanterns were some of the biggest lanterns there. The parade
ended at the Garden which was completely transformed.
We wandered around the garden for two plus hours and thoroughly enjoyed
Around Christmas, Helen and I usually go up to
Courtenay to visit family and get in some skiing. This year
was no different. I don't usually take many photos, but I did
snap a few.
My mother likes the swans that migrate (and
reside) in this part of the world. There are some fantastic
photos of swans and the Comox Glacier and these aren't them. That
said, they are the best I've done so far.
