Canada Day was a scorcher this year! I thank the non-denominational non gender-specific supreme entity of your choice that my wife insisted I wear a hat and lots of sunscreen! Otherwise I would have come home redder than a Mountie in his serge! I spent a few very enjoyable hours wandering around Swyalana Lagoon and photographing all the different events. There was a wonderful peaceful happy and oh so Canadian vibe in the air. There were so many cultures represented at the celebrations and it made me SO happy to be a Canadian.
