Birthdays & Fireworks

Hello friends,

I trust those of you in Canada and USA had a wonderful July 1st and July 4th respectively. It is wonderful to celebrate birthdays.  Canada is now 148 years old and USA is 239 years old.

Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile know I love fireworks.

On July 1st Canada Day I was able to watch fireworks from my patio. Though I don't have the best view I did manage to see some good bursts of colour and I did not have to deal with trying to make my way along with thousands of other people to get home after the display ended.

A few nights later, I captured a fantastic fireworks display on television. Seattle had a fabulous display of lights and I had a front row seat on my sofa.


This year the Honda Celebration of Light will celebrate 25 years of free fireworks in Vancouver.  Here is a little promo for the event that will be held July 25, 29 and August 1st. This is a fireworks competition and this year's competitors are: China, Brazil and Canada.  I don't watch every year but whenever I have, it has been thoroughly enjoyable.


  1. I love fireworks, too, but didn't get to any this year.

  2. I love fireworks too, used to take my children when they were small to the stadium to watch fireworks during special events. Now they are all grown up and I only watch on TV.

  3. Well done, great photos, fireworks are not always easy to get right. We have our celebrations on 14 July, Bastille Day here in France. Take care Diane

  4. Beautiful pictures, dear friend! We were able to watch the fireworks for the 4th of July from our year and it was a delight :) Have a wonderful week. Hugs!
