A Few of My Favourite (Canada Day) Things

The crowds! This picture was taken last year. I'm in there somewhere, really! Wearing a bright red sarong and white t-shirt for Canada Day. See me?? The Peace Tower on the Centre Block of the Parliament Buildings, complete with flag, but of course, and I think maybe we caught one of the Snow Birds, who perform over Parliament Hill every Canada Day. Check out the video clips on the link. Those guys are amazing. What the clips show you is their astonishing precision. What they don't really show you is the speed, and what they can't convey is the roar of the planes as they pass overhead, a roar that rattles the air around you. I love it! And finally, the fireworks! I didn't take this picture, but I know right where it was taken. I can walk here from my house. Even if I don't go to see the fireworks, I can feel them through the floor, hear them rattling the windows. Such fun!

Happy Canada Day!
