Happy 143rd birthday Canada!!!..and thanks for the day off today!!..If only the sun was shining..it was a cloudy day but we still managed to get out and enjoy the Canada celebrations in our neighbourhood.

Our agenda was full today..full of golden fun!!..Doug met Ed, Judy and “Emmie” at Mundy Park..and then we all went out for breakfast to the Dutch Panekoek House. 

In the afternoon we went to Rocky Point Park and the Golden Spike Days celebration.  It was very busy considering the fact that the weather was not co-operating..cloudy and the rain was spitting just a bit..

Our next stop on our Canada Day adventure was Lafarge Lake..right across the street from our condo…all celebrations and there is one right in our neighbourhood..no worries about where to park..just a quick stroll across the street..lots of people and exhibits..there is fireworks later on tonight so we will try and take some photos

We had a lovely afternoon, spent exploring our own neighbourhood..Happy Birthday Canada !!!..there may be more photos later if they are blog worthy???

It is now later..we are home finally after watching a steel drum band and other entertainment …’the light up the night show’ was a short lived white balloon over the lake..some dancers on a stage with dry ice…we left after waiting over an hour for the ‘fireworks’ to start….the fireworks have just gone off..sounded like a whole box exploding all at once!!..we are disappointed we did not stand and wait but happy still to be at home again..It has been a very long Canada Day..but one well spent!!
