Swell weekend up to Vancouver, B.C., for our band's final parade of the season; it was a humdinger, with hundreds of thousands of spectators lining the streets and cheering as we passed by, once we got going after waiting for two hours to join the procession. The night before, we watched amazing fireworks over a nearby bay; unfortunately they are sponsored by Big Nicotine, have been for years.
After the parade, we took a long walk around Stanley Park, along the seawall; along the eastern side, it was quieter, less crowded, and we were lucky to see several river otters swimming along or hunting for delectables below the tideline along the wall.
Vancouver's a very dense and expensive place, and the crowds got old for me, but we had a swell mini-vacation.
