Happy Birthday Canada

It is an extremely wet Canada Day here in most of BC.  We did get out for a walk and of course got rained on but it was great to be out for a bit. Sadly even here at Holiday Park, Covid- 19 has reared its ugly head and management cancelled our annual July 1st parade, luncheon and festivities. Of course celebrations have been cancelled almost everywhere in Canada although there are some virtual events taking place. We moved here in 2003 from Vancouver and this is the first July 1st that has been wet.  We have had a few overcast Canada Days, but not like this.

Some people suggested on our Neighbourhood Chat Facebook page that we decorate our golf carts and drive around today. Much too wet and cold for that.  Instead Colin and I checked out a few sites that were decorated.

A lovely patriotic display from our neighbours up the street.

A hedge on the main road.

Lots of large flags.

We got rained out on our walk yesterday and stood under my friends Cindys gazebo until it cleared.

Again on the main road. As you can see yesterday had some blue sky. From one extreme to the other.

I even did a bit of decorating on our cart. I was going to add more balloons today but didn’t because of the rain.  We never even drove it this Canada Day.

So proud to be a Canadian living in the great country and especially in British Columbia ( BC ) during these troubled times. Stay safe everyone.
