Happy Canada Day

Begin with A Nutritious Lunch:

(sangria and wings)

Beware the warning signs:

Hide from downpour (those dudes are totally random):

Oogle some soldiers:

Survey the crowds from lofty safety:

Remember (some of) what it means to be Canadian:

Mary Macgregor's (my grandfather's mother) ship's passage card from Scotland to Canada.

Julia Melhado (my grandmother's mother) with my great-aunt Julia (I was very close to my great-aunt; in fact, she was a great influence on my status as a reader...). Julia Melhado traveled to Canada in her late teens from London, England as part of the British Women's Emigration Association.
