Here are the best photos from the road trip that Christie and I took in early July. Our route took us to Seattle, to the Oregon Coast, down to the Bay Area, and finally to LA for two days of fun in SoCal. It was a lot of fun and I think I got some really great and unique photos.

Summer in the West End means two exciting events come to my doorstep: the four nights of the”Celebration of Light” fireworks shows, and topping the month off, the Pride Parade. This year was a special one for me, as for the first time since I moved up here, my Mom was in town during both these events and able to see in person what I had been raving about. This year’s parade was particularly special – not only was there a record crowd, but the overall vibe just seemed to be set to extra-joyous.

Last Sunday night was the always-delightful Ovation Awards, where the best in local musical theatre talent is honoured by their peers. It’s a ton of fun and a chance to see virtually everyone I was in a show with in the past year!
Adding to the fun this time, I participated in not one but two group numbers during the show – “There You Are” from “The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and “Anything Can Happen” from “Anne Murray of Green Gables” (the latter a fine excuse to wear my glittery “cheesy TV Host” jacket again!)
Here’s some pics I took at the reception, intermission, and even one from the show itself. Enjoy!This entry was posted in Main Blog, Photo-rama, Show Time on .
