Above is a link to Sheila Webster’s photograph of the classic water skiing pyramid at a 1967 competition held in Riverside Park, Kamloops. It is contained within her and partner Keith’s We-Love-Kamloops blog, and is one of many photographs of various locales in and around this beauteous City.
On the subject of aquatic acrobatics, a pyramid formation is also featured in this undated Youtube clip uploaded by CreakyRowBoat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DwmOLcEgL0&feature=related
These colourful pastries immediately caught my hungry eye at the Can-Ital Ladies food pavilion in Riverside Park during Kamloops’ Canada Day festivities. It is a cake with a custard filling formed and tinted to look like a sugared peach. Delectable and quite reasonably priced at $2 each.
