My friend Nick Lum took some great pictures of the Gung Haggis Fat Choy
dragon boat float in the 3rd Annual Vancouver St. Patrick's Day
Parade.  In this series of photographs, we are crossing Davie St.,
as we “paddle” North along Granville St.

Aefa smiles during her very first paddling lesson in a dragon
boat.  This was the first time the Glasgow native set foot in a
dragon boat team.  We think she is perfect! – photo Nick Lum.
