I know you don’t expect to hear about ‘non-stamping fun’ from me, but it’s true – it does exist! 🙂
Thank you very much for making our Creation Station Blog Tour a success; by the number of viewers, I’d say that you’re all looking forward to getting your own copy of the Holiday catalogue! Aren’t the new products fun?! Don’t worry – I’ll be sharing more soon, but in the meantime, I’m getting ready for an upcoming Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop this Thursday, and I’m heading out of town for the weekend, too. So, I’ve lots to prepare for – not to mention the fun we’ll be having at Colleen’s Stampin’ Up! party this Thursday! 🙂 I’m really looking forward to having fun with the ladies, meeting new ones, and sharing some of our great products.
A week or so ago, I shared with you that my sister and brother-in-law had been in town to visit, and that we went to our beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park for a nice walk, and to go on the zip line! Well, I’ve finally been able to conquer the computer demons, and have some pictures to share with you, as well as the quick (as in 19 seconds!) zip line video!
First, here’s a couple pictures inside the park:
I think the park curators have done a fabulous job maintaining the plantings, considering the drought we’ve had, and that they have to water everything by hand!
Can you see the bird, made from plants? They’re so clever!
This is part of the park that you ‘fly over’ when on the zip line! Great view – unless you’re like me – have long hair that covers your face as you spin around on the zip line!
This is the part where you stand, and get attached to the zip line. These guys know what they’re doing! To date, they’ve strapped in hundreds of brides & grooms (yes, in their wedding finery!) plus local news crews & celebrities, such as Todd & Jillian of Love It or List It Vancouver fame! (I wish I had met them!)
Here’s a view of where you land; it’s about 600 ft or 190 metres long, and the whole trip takes about 30 seconds from launch to landing.
The lovely people in this photo are my sister, Fay, and brother-in-law Glenn. They have to put up with me – we’re related! 😉
And now – here it is – the whole 19 second video of me (in the white jacket – no, not a straight-jacket!) and my brother-in-law Glenn (brave soul – he didn’t tell me that he didn’t care for heights until we were being strapped in!) as we fly above the gardens! My sister, Fay (who decided that just watching was enough for her) did the filming 🙂
Trust me – it was fun, and not at all scary! If you want scary, or a ‘thrill’ zip line, you have to go to the big ones, like up Whistler or Grouse Mountains. Now that I’ve tried this one, I’ll have to take the next step 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my little show – until next time,
