Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day! Today, July 1st 2011, is Canada's 144th birthday. I am so proud to be a Canadian. The more I travel and see of the world, the more grateful I am to live where I do. We are so very fortunate. Our flag is recognized as a symbol of a peace-loving country, and our troops are known as peace-keepers. I am presently in Manhattan, and tonight I'll be looking up at the Empire State Building which will be bathed in red and white lights.
Since the maple leaf is a symbol of Canada, I thought I'd share a few of my favourite maple leaf photos with you today... (Much as I love the red maples in the fall, I hope we're not seeing red leaves anytime soon!!!)









Peace and Love
Linda, a proud Canadian

O Canada! Our home and native land...

Happy Canada Day.
I have only been to Canada once on my Honeymoon. Bet you can guess where we went. I thought your country was beautiful too. And I met some very gracious and helpful people. I left with a wonderful impression of Canada.
