Last weekend my boyfriend and I decided to go and check out the Capilano Suspension Bridge’s light-show “Canyon Lights”. Ryan has never been before, and it’s probably been over ten years since I’ve been there… and what a perfect time of year to go! It was so beautiful, and the lights were pretty spectacular. So many great spots to take photos, although so many traffic jams in the middle of the bridge, because literally EVERYONE was trying to take selfies. These two girls where holding up the entire bridge, because they were trying to get that casual candid “I’m the only one on the bridge” shot. Pretty much impossible to do, if you are there at night/on the weekend. I would suggest going early if you are wanting those types of shots, or being SUPER quick with the camera when you get that few second window, which is what we did. My boyfriend has a great eye for photos, and he managed to block most of the people out of the background with just different angles. I also forgot how much the actual Suspension Bridge SWAYS, it was slightly terrifying trying to take photos, while trying not to fall over the edge/smash into anyone else. We managed somehow, although I really shouldn’t have looked down while walking across the Cliff-walk. Turns out I’m A LOT more afraid of heights than I remembered being, haha. I would really recommend checking it out, if you live in the Vancouver area and are looking for a fun Christmas activity. It’s fun being a “tourist” in your own city.. and they also have a Free shuttle that leaves from all over Downtown Vancouver, and takes you right to the doors & back. Totally worth it. What’s NOT worth it though.. is paying $10 for their “Beaver Balls”, which are literally ten little chunks of a flat, tasteless pancake. Skip that one for sure. However they DO have an incredible selection of homemade fudge, maple syrup’s & other tasty treats.
xoxo, Happy Holidays!
