Okanagan Trestles Tour 2015

What an incredible day this was. Recent high temperatures in the Okanagan made this event just fabulous and yet it was never too hot. This is the third Okanagan Trestles Tour I have covered and I saw nothing but smiling faces out there. I heard a couple mentioning how well the event was organized. I covered the event in three spots. First at the Myra Canyon Trestles, then at "Little Tunnel" above Naramata and finally around the finish area. I wrapped the day off with nice dip in the lake. What better way to end the day. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Fallon & Jon's Wedding

We spent a fabulous day for Fallon and Jon's Wedding in West Kelowna. The reception was held on a private property right down to the beach in West Kelowna and the reception conveniently held across the street in a cozy backyard setting with the creek running thought. This made for an incredibly intimate setting and it was clear that everyone was having a great time. We had a "best ever" ending to the this day. Fallon and Jon were actually married in Vegas back in the fall of 2014 but had not told anyone. They played a video at the end of the evening where they surprised all the guest. A wonderful contagious laughter spread through the crowd and it was a perfect way to end the day for us. Congrats again from Diana and I. 


Kids of Steel Triathlon

I was back at Kin Beach today for another Kids of Steel Triathlon. It is always great to see the determination in the kids and parents supporting. Great atmosphere. Is was a morning of mixed sun and cloud but the young athletes enjoyed warmer water temperatures this year due to the recent warmer weather.

FIFA 2015 World Cup

The 2015 Women's World Cup soccer is currently in full swing here in Canada. Thursday night we went to the Fan Zone and watch the Canada - New Zealand game on the big screens. Great atmosphere and a ton of fun soccer related things to do there. Completely unexpectedly we ended up winning free tickets for the Friday games at BC Place Stadium. Cool. So Friday we headed out to watch the two games. Switzerland - Ecuador and Japan - Cameroon. Both games were really exciting, the first games won convincingly by a score of 10-1 in Switzerland's favour and Japan-Cameroon ended 2-1 after a very exciting finish where Cameroon almost tied in the last seconds of the game. Great to witness such a big event in Vancouver.
