For those of you who like outdoor activities without actually being out in the wilderness, Creekside Kayak is an awesome choice for kayak rentals. Twice in the past month, I’ve gone kayaking in False Creek. It’s no-pressure kayaking! The waters is fairly flat, and if you get tired you can just float for a while, enjoy the downtown skyline and wave at the driver and passengers of the Aqua Bus.
On Sunday August 21, 2011, come to David Lam Park in Yaletown for a picnic from 4pm onwards. Then stick around until dusk for a free, surprise film from the 80’s that’ll be playing in the park. Bring your own blanket and/or folding chair. See poster for more details.
This year, rain or shine, I will be volunteering at Theatre Under the Stars. This annual summer live theatre event will be featuring two alternating musicals at Malkin Bowl at Stanley Park. Bye Bye Birdie is set in the 1960’s as all teenages across North America are going crazy for “Elvis Presley-style” rock star Conrad Birdie. Meanwhile, “Anything Goes” takes place on the S.S. American, which is sailing from New York to England. A cast of wacky passengers include a ganger, a wealthy debutante and her mother, a nightclub singer and a wealthy New York businessman.
