Happy Canada Day
Until 2007, my most memorable Canada Days were in Ottawa, where the city really comes alive. However, that year, Sally and I spent Canada Day trying to get out of Albania and into Montenegro. While there was no one there to celebrate with us, once we managed to get across the border...a most adventuresome episode during our around the world trip....we were happy to reflect on less trying days, lying in the grass on Parliament Hill.
This year, Sally is spending Canada Day with Georgia on the California coast. I am watching the Ottawa celebrations on TV, but will head downtown later today to watch the parade and the fireworks. But here are a few Canada images I found on-line, to recognize a special day in the year. It is a good day to be a Canadian.
