... Or a giant kite jamboree!
And by "giant kite jamboree," I mean both that the number of people participating in the event was large... and that some of the kites were actually freaking giant.
Recently while out on a stroll, David and I turned a corner and were presented with this scene:
Oh, what's that going on up ahead, you ask? JUST A LITTLE OF THIS:
This is Vanier Park, and it is right inside my Kitsilano neighborhood. The park is also home to a Space Museum, the Museum of Vancouver, and Bard on the Beach - a Shakespearean theater series that performs all summer long. Pretty cool, "eh"? (I promise I didn't pick up a Canadian accent. This was only a test.)
Well for whatever reason, this particular day Vanier Park also happened to be Where the Kite Things Are. I wasn't mad about it.
This was one of the two biiiig kites - My Fair Lady:
Kind of random but definitely brought a smile to my face. Some of the largest kites I've ever seen! And what a beautiful day for it!! I don't currently own any kites, but there are so many open lawns and beaches to fly them that I might end up buying one at some point this summer.
On a random end note, do kites make anyone else think of Mary Poppins?
