Canada Day was Sunday...and Monday (the Federal holiday). I love this week in Canada! First, I get to witness and participate in Canada Day festivities and then a couple of days later I get to celebrate the 4th of July. The week is full of fireworks, patriotism, parades, pot luck suppers and flag flying. It would be hard not to get caught up in the celebrations!
On Canada Day I went to Pugwash for the parade and the Gathering of the Clans. This was my first year to attend but it won't be my last. The parade was a delight. There were five, count them...5, Pipe Bands! There were antique cars, floats, fire trucks, tractors and silly cars and horse drawn carriages. I am sure the population of Pugwash doubled that day. You really must see, so here is a little photo journey for you!
|Happy Canada Day!|

|It was a beautiful day for a sail, if you aren't into piping, highland games and dancing.|

|The view a lone would be something to toot about!|
There was also a highland games competition or in other words, large-men-in-kilts-throwing-heavy-things competition. Yes, there was a lot of tartan and wool in Pugwash for Canada Day. The games defy gravity and logic if you ask me!
|Glad he remembered to wear those shorts!|
