I am Canadian


I am a British Columbian


I am an Albertan




I am not Canadian

I am a Newfie


I would like to wish my fellow Canadians a Happy Canada Day

That's some stunning imagery you have there.

So, what happens on Canada Day celebrations-wise?

Have a good one!

Walker said...

Luka: Here in the Capital there are parties being held all through the down town and in people homes as there is across the country.
At 10 pm we make our way to Parliment Hill for the big fire works display that is held there.
Up to 100 thousand people will jam the area for the display.
Similar fire works will be held through out major city across the country aswell.

Have a lovely day. It seems such a shame that we don't celebrate a national day here in the UK.

I might have to move!

Walker said...

Reluctant Blogger: We celebrate for many reasons the main one is Canada's birthday.
We are a young country that has grown from hope by so many people who came here to build a life from somewhere where that wasn't possible for various reasons.
I am proud to be a Canadian as my parents are who are Greek first and formost but I know they love this country as much as ther one they left to make this one their home.

You could always visit next Canada Day ;)

Happy Happy Canada Day! I hope to visit your fair country someday.

Our big day is Independence Day this Friday :)

Someday, I WILL get up to the territories and see the Northern Lights for myself!

Walker said...

Monogram Queen: I hope you do get the chance.
I think we all loose out not exploring our own back yards and take things for granted.
I hope the world can one day appreciate what we have and try to save what little we have left

Walker said...

Blazngfyre: Actually you don;t have to go that far up. You can see the Northern lights a thousand miles from there.
Its something to see. When I first saw them I was ;left speechless watching the colored lights dancing on the roof of the world.

Anonymous Boxer said...

Those Northern Lights are on my list of things to do in my lifetime.

Happy Canada Day to a Fabulous Candadian.

Happy Canada day to you too! Though I'm not Canadian, I have lots of Canadian relatives. Such a vast country with amazing contrasts... Which part do you consider yourself? Ontario?

Peter said...

Hi Walker, there are so many beautiful pictures shown on your post Canada really is a beautiful country, I hope your national day is a great day for you and yours.

Walker said...

Anonymous Boxer: I hae seen them a couople of times from a distance but i woulsnt mind getting up close and seeing them from there.
I am off for the firewrks display now, a different type of northern lights

Walker said...

craziequeen: Thank you, I don't see why they shouldnt let you in. We are always looking for good people :)

Walker said...

nachtwache: Thanks, We have some wonders here that we seldom get to experiece

Walker said...

Blazngfyre: Soon soon I will tell you soon lol

Walker said...

jyankee: Yes it is a vast country with many differences under one flag.
I live in the Capital, not the biggest city but full of culture just the same :)

Walker said...

Peter: Thank you, yes it is a beautiful country as is yours and many other places around the world many of us call home.
I think its time we all began tgo explore our backyards and look at the wonders we don't see but live with.

That would have made a good Mute Monday post. Nice visuals.

Weary Hag said...

Wow. I'm exhausted! Thanks for the nifty tour, Walker.

You see, there's a problem with me coming to Canada. There are bears there. Big bears.

No thank you.

Hugs and hope you had a Happy Canada Day!

Walker said...

The Troll: Thanks
I don't know how they do it. I went nuts looking for pictures and then getting blogger to let me uploading them which on 4 occations it wouldn't uless i rebooted.

Walker said...

Weary Hag: The bears are far from here for now at least but if you had a chocolate bar the chances of your escape will be good.

Walker said...

Michael Manning: Thanks Mike

Gypsy said...

Mr Troll is right. This WOULD have been a great Mute Monday. What a stnning country, and one I would very much love to visit one day.

I know I'm very late but Happy Canada Day Walker. Hope you had a blast!

Selma said...

Canada looks absolutely stunning. I hope I get to visit there one day. It is on my list of 'must-see' places. You have made me determined to get there!
