Happy Canada Day!

Too bad it's been raining all morning, but it seems to have stopped now.

Yesterday I walked home, and found a little neighbourhood called the Republic of Rathnelly which humorously declared independence from Canada on July 1st, 1967 (the centennial) in recognition of their own efforts in stopping the Spadina Expressway being built through their area.

So I'm thinking I'm going to jump on my bike and ride through there and see what silly festivities they're having.

Then I'll come back and totally drink some beer, eh!

Happy Belated Canada Day! I used to have fun while I was living in Canada. I went to the Ball Park on First Nation Reserve to Canada Day celebration. I think we had fireworks in the evening.

I am glad that you had a good time riding your bike and see what is going on with the festivals. Too bad it was over in the blink of the eye. :(
