Happy Canada Day!

               On Canada Day!

I think
I will
take a plunge
into the fresh
salt water
Point Pleasant

With the assistance of my Dads, a strong arm and a couple cameras, I can get a good workout and show you how much I love going here.
I know you already are aware of this, but it doesn't hurt to emphasize the joy that I feel .
How's that for a splash!?
Many of these splashes attract others as you'll see below...
~~~Sailboats slipping through the fog~~~
~~~Jenny, a Malamute, joined me with a cooling off dip~~~
AND~~~a cormorant trying to figure out what I was doing.
I hope that everyone whether Canadian or t'other
enjoys their peace and freedom.

    Wow, great post! I love those pix of your swimmie time. You make amazing splashies and wavies. I wish I could join you too. Have a wonderful holiday weekend! If you're looking for something to do, you could join a bunch of us at the Luau being hosted by Fiesty Three! I'd like to see you there.

    Andy you're right, peace and freedom is something many don't have while the rest of us take it for granted.

  24. Its nice to see you, Sophie.. enjoying the freedom to chasing Mr Orange, thanks be to the peacemakers. Happy Canada Day to U, Jim and Ron.
    I was born in a little town names Point Pleasant.. I was pleasantly surprised by the coincidence.

    Happy is as happy does :D
    Pam i am and Crissy-doodle too

  25. Gorgeous photos! We should have headed to Point Pleasant yesterday as opposed to checking out the new Chain Lake Trail. We would have had a much better time.

    Happy Canada Day!
