Oh’d to Canada

On July 1st, Canada celebrates its 147th birthday!  Last year, I wrote about our magnificent country in this post, Oh Canada, Glorious & Free.  In honour of 147, I thought I would share a little photographic compilation of just some of the fabulous places I have visited in our beautiful land!


O = Outstanding

H = flagHumble

C = Courteous

A = Amicable

N = Noble

A = Appealing

D = Diverse


There is rarely a day that goes by that I don’t appreciate this beauty country I live in.  If you haven’t had the chance to visit Canada, I strongly encourage you to do so!

Here is just a sample of what you are missing! (click on the photos to enlarge if you like)

So excited to find Beaver Tails on the mountain in Whistler, B.C. YUMMMMMY!!

May we continue to prosper, to be a country known & celebrated for our diversity & richness in character.  There is no place I would rather live!

Happy Birthday Canada!

    Lynn I love the way you have shown the diversity of our beautiful country. That should be a tourism Canada brochure! Well done.

    H is for Humble? Not much to be humble about in these pics, Lynn. I would make it H is for Hopewell Rocks. I love the look of that place.
    Nice to share a little patriotism. Young Raonic did awfully well at Wimbledon today 🙂

    • Lynn says:

      Hopewell Rocks is a pretty amazing place Jo! We walked the ocean floor at low tide & within a very short period of time, we were kayaking in the same area where we were previously walking. The rocks are incredible!

      Humble is more of a reference to Canadian spirit in general. We tend to be very modest about ourselves & our country but you are so right, there is so much to celebrate here!

      I have not been following Wimbledon but Raonic is all over the news this evening!

      Thank you so much for your visit today. I hope your heart is feeling a little lighter. I know it’s been a rough day for you.

  10. Totally agree!!! I really miss Canada 🙂 great blog!
