Yesterday was Canada Day. Much like Independence Day in the US, it’s our day to celebrate our country and OUR confederation, where we became the federal Dominion of Canada on July 1st, 1867. There is usually day long celebrations including concerts, events and fireworks. Every town and city celebrates.
I worked from 9-5 (which I get double-time for, yay!) and then we went to Cory’s sisters place for a barbecue. We planned on going to the fireworks in the evening but didn’t end up going, we did watch some from our balcony though.
I am not too bummed about the fireworks, Sunday is my birthday, I will be 34 (I am getting old) and we are going to Digby, to the beach camping for the weekend with my family. We are supposed to be setting off fireworks sometime over the weekend.
That was until we got word that tropical storm Arthur is headed our way and expected to make landfall (potentially as a hurricane) on Saturday. We are still going to the beach camping. Yes I know, my family is got to be the only family I know that is planning to not only go camping during a tropical storm possibly turned hurricane, but also to be camping on a beach at the ocean. Should be interesting.
I am taking my camera and will try and get some pictures, if we do not float away…
