Happy 150th Birthday Canada!

I hope all my Canadian readers are enjoying Canada Day and are sporting their red and white 🙂  This is the first year I can remember where I am not wearing red and white but that is only because both hubby and I are wearing our Camp Hosts shirts and walking around the park chatting with folks. But even though we are not wearing red and white our site is looking patriotic.

 

In fact many sites in the park are decorated for Canada Day and campers are enjoying a sunny, warm day with temperatures around 32C, 90F.  The lake has dropped enough that there is now some beach and it is great to see it full of children swimming and playing in the sand.

This was the most decorated site in the park!

This afternoon our site was full of children decorating their bikes, skateboards, scooters, etc. for the Canada Day Parade around the park.

  

I will leave you with a little bit of history that I found interesting.

Ariana Cuvin, a second year Global Business and Digital Arts student at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, created the Canada 150 logo. Ariana was chosen from a field of over 300 eligible entries submitted by Canadian students in a national design contest held in 2015.

The logo is composed of a series of diamonds arranged in the shape of the maple leaf. The four diamonds at the base represent the four original provinces that formed Confederation in 1867: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The additional diamonds, that extend out from the base to create nine more points, represent the 10 provinces and 3 territories that make up Canada.

HAPPY CANADA DAY EVERYONE!

 Until next time …Until next time …
