Fête du Canada

Happy Canada Day!

      Canada Day (Fête du Canada), formerly Dominion Day ( Le Jour de la Confédération), is the national day of Canada, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united three British colonies into a single country, called Canada, within the British Empire. Originally called Dominion Day, the name was changed in 1982, the year that Canada gained full independence from the United Kingdom. Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as internationally. (Wikipedia)

Having lunch with my youngest daughter on the roof patio of the Waterfront bistro.

Same spot with the camera angle moved to face south towards Lake Ontario.

The location of the waterfront bistro is shown on the map above. It has a very nice roof top patio overlooking the marina,good bistro food and easy access to the boats. The weather today was perfect with a moderate breeze. Fine for sailing.

   Meanwhile Prince William and Duchess Kate were in Ottawa to celebrate Canada Day during their nine day royal tour of Canada.

   A  Canadian school teacher in Korea asks his students questions about Canada and they do pretty well.

Same position as the last photo but pointed upwards.

  Hope you had a great day also.
