VAV

Well, I made it to the end of the summer.  I finished work at Green Gables yesterday and head to Sweden two weeks from tomorrow by way of Iceland.  Each day for the next two weeks will have it's own "to do" list as I work out all the logistics and finish booking my accommodations and train pass.  I am so excited and the whole adventure is starting to feel real.  And having two weeks for final prep is perfect - and what a luxury not have to do it all around my work schedule.

In the meantime, I thought I would post some photos of Charlottetown's second annual Art in the Open festival which happened this pas Saturday.  A magical day and night of outdoor art all over the downtown parks.  This event makes me love my city and the whole experience is inspiring, thought-provoking and kinda euphoric....I was much too busy to have a project in the festival this year, but I helped Damien with a series of signal flags installed in Victoria Park.

 Sarah Saunders' Cryosphere.

 Kelly Casely and Matt Bowness' balloon people.

 And two of Damien's 18 signal flags.

These photos only demonstrate a fraction of Art in the Open's awesomeness this year....there was so much more!!  Giant spiderweb!  Real sheep with LED lights!  A bed in the woods!  And so much more......
