We were excited to learn we were going to be in Vancouver for one of the nights of Celebration of Light – an international fireworks competition, and something we did not know about when we booked this trip. We were disappointed to learn that more then 300,000 people crowd the waterfront in a mass sea of people, and to gain a decent vantage point, you have to arrive many hours early and stand your ground and wait.
So we decided our time was better served doing other things, so we rented a boat and followed and photographed a couple cruiseships as they left Vancouver. Well as luck would have it, at the end of the night when we were all done, the owner of the boat rental company invited us up to the roof of his high-rise apartment building! This was from the roof top pool area – it was a great show!
