Whoa Nellie! I've been too long absent from the blog saddle. Guess some of you thought I'd been put out to pasture. But I'm feeling my blog oats (that would be "bloats") tonight so I thought I'd mosey on in here and horse around a bit.
Let's dog this woman's footsteps back to a lovely day last spring in Vancouver...
where things were starting to get a little bit in tents!
No photos were allowed to be taken inside the showplace so I contented myself with catching shots of the large canvas posters that decorated the fences.
(As there is a lot of information online about this troupe, I am not going to go into details. Click on the links above or take a shortcut to the Wiki version here. )
Polka dot horses are my all-time favourites!
But really, it was a welcome relief to be able to just sit back in awe and delight, watching the show and not being distracted by fiddling with a camera.
When we exited the tent after the amazing spectacle, I noticed this strange, seemingly abandoned old warehouse situated just outside the grounds where the tents were set up.
The posters in front of it gave it the appearance of a fantasy barn made for phantom horses.
It seemed slightly surreal, rather like a movie set.
But then, the whole spectacle/experience was slightly surreal, in the most positive sense of the word.
This night out with my mother and my sister is one we'll each cherish for the rest of our lives--especially as we so rarely have the opportunity to trot out together and kick up our heels.
If Cavalia comes galloping into your town, don't miss the chance to see it.
It will truly whinny you over!
