Canada Day


We had a great Canada Day long weekend celebration. 
We started Canada Day with a very hot climb up Mt. Seymour, our new training ground with a consistent climb and good quad training on the way down. 

Later in the afternoon we enjoyed a bike ride on the sea wall to burn up all the lactic acid from the Mt. Seymour climb.  

Dinner and Canada Day fireworks in Burrard Inlet viewed from the roof top of the condo. Great show! 

And a quiet and reflective moment for Neil at sunset on Third Beach on the Seawal! We enjoyed a picnic at sunset on the beach. 

The smoke in the photos is from all the forest fires surrounding Vancouver. It's hot and dry here. Very heavy forest fire smoke and hot temperatures today - 38 degrees at the farm today! 

Another climb up Mt. Seymour with Neil and Dave. It was another hot one! This is an action shot of me trying to swipe that very large black fly - zoom it in and you can see the annoying creature.  Very Dodgy Beasts! That's 3 climbs of Mt Seymour this week, nice! 
And Vancouver had the excitement of hosting the FIFA Women's World Cup Final today between the USA and Japan.  The city was full of American fans this weekend and they were happy as their team won the final 5-2! The competition has been held across Canada with several cities hosting the 52 games played over the last month. It's been a great competition and a huge boost for women's soccer.....and for tourism in Vancouver and across Canada!
