Happy Canada Day everyone! It’s a beautiful day here! We’re planning on taking it easy today and beating the heat the best we can. It’s been crazy hot here the last little while with 30’C temperatures. Thankfully today is supposed to be a bit cooler at 28’C. We’re thinking about riding over to Newcastle Island to lounge in the shade, beachcomb and swim and then over to Protection Island in low tide, ending our trip at the Dinghy Dock Pub for a famously appetising meal.
Before 1982 Canada Day was actually called Dominion Day. I have fond memories of celebrating Dominion Day at Fort Steele, an old heritage ghost town highlighting it’s booming years of 1890. With picnics, games, actors, ice cream making…. Oh the merriment!
Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend!
