Yet another successful solstice paddle this year, we put in at the Coast Guard station by the Burrard street bridge and paddled around Granville Island. We then took to shore and enjoyed a bit of the Solstice festival by taking in the Secret Lantern dance.

Those not from Vancouver may not know that there is a Christmas tradition here where the rich farts who own yachts try to eliminate some of the boredom of yacht ownership at Christmas. They decorate their toys with Christmas lights, get in a big long line, and motor around the Vancouver shoreline for nights on end with people on the boats singing carols. Global warming bedamned.

So it's great to see Monster and his friends gradually providing a counterpoint to the yachties. Maybe some day the yachts will be low-cost housing and thousands will turn out to paddle.

I was interested to see that one of the dancing families are some of the people who usually go on the annual Easter Island canoe trip.
