I think it’s high time for me to share a lighter post!
On July 1st, Canada celebrated its 146th Birthday. In comparison to many countries, Canada is still quite young and she is a beauty! I feel grateful and blessed to be a Canadian.
This year’s celebrations started out in Millennium Park instead of the usual Princess Island Park which hasn’t totally recovered from the recent floods.
Canada Day activities continued on Stephen Avenue Mall and Olympic Plaza with a grand finale of fireworks on the Centre Street Bridge.
I truly meant to check out the fireworks this year but I was just too tired to head back down there. An afternoon in the hot sun, no doubt, played a role in knocking me off my kilter.
I hope you enjoy the photos below. Happy belated Canada Day to all my Canadian readers and a very Happy 4th of July to my American friends tomorrow.
