Saturday Part 2
With video camera in hand, and a look of near confidence on his face, our hero sets out across the great rift in the land, spanning 450 feet across. He has all good intentions of taking video footage from high up on this suspension bridge.
Approximately 25 feet into his journey, he decides that cameras belong in camera bags, and hands are much more appropriately used to clench the steel cables from which his life is suspended.
Having survived the treachery he plays it cool in the treetops, with a smug look of victory.
His girlfriend evidently experienced no such fear of the rocking bridge.
She was one of those long-haired tree-hugging hippies.
The two spent a few more hours wandering through the forest paths which wind through the forest floor amongst ancient trees (some that were 400 year old giants), and up onto a series of forts and bridges suspended high up in the trees like some kind of Ewok residential neigbourhood.
I hope you are all well. Please check back soon for the video footage of Capilano, as well as our Sunday trip to Stanley Park, and Vancouver's Aquarium.
