WE ARE CANADIAN!


146 years and going strong ~~ 


Jim 


Ron


and Little Ol' Me ~~~
Wish all our followers a Happy Canada Day!


You'll see the flag everywhere in Canada ~~~


Even fluttering in the breezes above the Sailor's Monument at Point Pleasant Park


and at the monument for the Halifax Explosion of 1917


in a parking lot for those taking advantage of the ferry to Halifax.


at the top of the Dingle Tower


which I am planning on going up


the next time someone wants to take me
(see the flag down below ~~~ 2 for 1 special)


Japanese Maples in our garden remind me of our flag


 as does the sunset captured down the road last fall


I am very thankful for the life I have


and I love maple leaves


Can you tell that

WE ARE SO PROUD TO BE CANADIAN!!!

Click and See!!

    1. Thanks so much Craig!

      This sunset was like being in another world. We had driven home from the city and I kept saying to Jim 'look, just look at the colours'.

      I jumped out of the car as soon as we pulled into the driveway and ran to the grassy spot facing this view. I took so many pictures. Heaven!

      All the best to you both and Boris of course!

    1. That's too funny ~~~ he was here in Halifax a few years ago filming The Christmas Shoes. We were sitting on the waterfront and he ran by, stopped, nodded and took a breather. So strange when you see a star, as if you already know them and they haven't a clue who you are!

      Snorts!!
