We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

 We are enjoying a wonderful summer hot spell here on the west coast and on Friday night we headed into Vancouver...
...where we met up with several coworkers from the office to celebrate the birthday of a dear friend of all of ours.
 There right on the waterfront in Vanier Park we attended Bard on the Beach for the first time, although the brochures told us it was in it's 25th Season.
 I had no idea that it is one of Canada's largest not-for-profit, professional Shakespeare Festivals and we have only talked about getting tickets but never actually made it before!
 We enjoyed an awesome presentation of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'...who knew that Shakespeare was so funny?!
 It us just one of four presentations that they are putting on this summer.
 As we found our seats we all marveled at the amazing view where we watched the boats come into the harbour all evening long while we watched the play.
 Not sure if you will see this post today Marilyn,
but if you do, 
I'm so glad we were able to celebrate your birthday early last Friday!

Have a special day on your actual Birthday!

What a beautiful setting! I'd probably be prone to watch the background more than the actors.. unless Shakespeare has gotten more interesting. =) Looks like you had a good time. Your photos are great!
