Happy Canada Day!!! I swear I'm still American. Anyways, Canada Day was on the 1st of July; then the 4th of July was on well you know. So this year as I am still in Canada I thought I would just stick around here to see the festivities. And to my delight my friend Darlea said she wanted to come up and see me for the Holiday. Awesome!!!
So I wanted to share our adventures with you guys!
She arrived the day before Canada Day and since that day was a Stat holiday I had the day off. Wednesday came and we decided to go to the Salmon festival over in Steveston. This is the town where they supposedly filmed Once upon a Time; cool. There were lots of festivities and a parade:
I think my favorite float was for a window washing company that wore kilts. Their logo was 'no peeking' Hilarious.
If you can see the bush right next to the water that is actually rubarb, gigantic rubarb!
We stopped at the rose gardens part for a nice little rest next to a small wishing well and it was so nice to just relax and people watch!
There also was a japanese gardens and it was fabulous I felt like I was back in Japan again!
Another cool part was the Italian garden; which happened to be the last gardens we visited. I loved that spot mainly because I got to eat Gelato!
We of course went over the suspension bridge and had fun on the cliff walk; but there was also a raptor show where Darlea got to show off her amazing inteligence of these magnificent creatures namely the bard Owl.
My friend is so awesome!
So that was my fun-filled and exhausting week with my friend! I thought we did pretty good at getting around to see the sights; she even did more while I was at work too! There was a ton of walking! But I enjoyed it and I do love when she follows me across the globe (really she followed me to Idaho, Disney World, South Korea and now Canada.)
Adventure is out there!
