I AM Canadian!

Lots of excitement here on Canada Day in Nelson and Lake Side Park is definitely the place to be. The crowds came out en masse and there was vibrating activity for all...food; face painting; marionettes; clowns; bubbles; bands and music (of all sorts); games; dancing; and good old mulling about. Of course we mustn't forget the fireworks which are on the agenda for this evening. Another classic Nelson celebration. Check out the photos.






Happy Birthday Canada!!!

we had the same flags and face stickers here in London!

I didn't get a flag but I got a pin :)

Couldn't get into the Maple Leaf pub if my life depended on it but went and had a Sleemans Pale at the Porterhouse next door and spent some time in Trafalgar Square being a Canadian Ambassador (fancy word for volunteer)

Missing Canada...

Pinks, I'm sure that Canada is missing you as well. And yep, I bet the Maple Leaf pub was packed yesterday.

A proud moment indeed for Canada and one in which you have captured beautifully with your camera.

A sense of pride in one's country is always important and long may it continue to express through to the younger generation.
