July 1st is when we don our red and white - even if it is only of the temporary tattoo variety -- and get our National Party on!

Celebrating the glorious Maple Leaf!

 Our plans are to attend the festivities at our local park.   
There will be music, games, bouncy castles, a splash pad and a beach area...... and all kinds of good eats I am sure.

And of course ending with some fireworks at dusk.  

What there hopefully will NOT be is the thunderstorms that have been forecast.
 Otherwise, Plan B.

Um, there is no Plan B.
It's a holiday - everything is closed. 

Unless me sitting on my deck, staring at the flag and watching the rain fall on my garden decorations; is considered A Plan.

 The sky colours tonight seemed to be on our side:  red and white ....and Glorious.

 Red sky at night......

.... Holiday delight!
