After a long cool spring, finally it's a beautiful day on Canada's West Coast - so appropriate for Canada Day.

I've enclosed some recent pics that I took in our Nation's Capital, Ottawa & our Provincial Capital, Victoria.

Similarly, Happy Birthday to all of our American friends on the upcoming 4th of July.

BTW, the famous 'BeaverTailS' pastries are the best thing about Ottawa, ha!!

Nope. The Canadian calendar goes from the third right to the fifth!

Happy Birthday, Canada! Nice photos Lab!

Shouldn't this be in the birthday thread?

I wonder, with Canada's and Americas birthday being so close together, if the U.N. combines them into one party and each get gyped out of presents?

145 years is the official number, but that only included Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Other provinces joined over the next 85-odd years.

The announcement was immediately published on the internet :

Had an awesome long weekend here. The weather stayed perfect despite the forecasts.

Friday night we went to a friends house who planked a salmon. Soooo Goood. Saturday, we sailed over to the beach on the island just off our bay. Spent the day in the sun and the on water.

Sunday, we went to the nearby community of North Rustico where Canada Day is bigger than Christmas. Starts with a parade at 10:30 in the am then bands and other entertainment all day down by the waterfront. Then we hopped on a lobster boat to take a part in the Parade of Boats. The prize for most decorated boat went to a boat that seemed to have more young bikinis on it than flags but it was definitely the most observed, so I guess that gave it extra points. Then a barbecue at our friends house and more music.

Monday was more relaxing. We enjoyed the sun on our deck and I got out again for a great afternoon on the item I'm not allowed to mention any more.

Cheers to everyone down South for your celebration tomorrow. I hope you all have as great a holiday as ours was. July 4th also my Mom's birthday so we will be celebrating again.

The west coast weather finally turned to summer thanks to the High Pressure System sliding up from the US Desert SW - the one that produced 54C in Death Valley yesterday. It hit 33C on my deck last evening - very warm for here.

This is what I'm doing this Canada Day Weekend while my wife is toiling away in our ER at our local hospital:

Actually, it was so Linnie could remember our anniversary, lol!

The fireworks will be a bonus for us every year.

Congrats Adrian!

Tam. I went through the Air & Space museum a couple of days ago. Among other things they had a nice display of older plane engines. The engines in those fighters were HUGE!

I spent Canada day hanging out in Ottawa with the kids. We watched the fireworks from the Museum of Civilization (across the Ottawa river from the parliament buildings).

Our Air and Space museum (unsurprisingly) also has a nice display of old plane engines. This one is my favorite: http://airandspace.si.edu/collections/artifact.cfm?object=nasm_A19781379000

Yup, they were huge, heavy & complicated & they ran them to their limits when required - amazing engineering actually.

The big radial engines in fighters like the Thunderbolt & Sea Fury resulted in a fat front end, whereas the V12 types in the Spitfires & Mustang type fighters made for a much more slender profile.

The beauty of today's turbines is there is really just one big smoothly moving part instead of pistons, cams, valves, crankshafts, superchargers, etc, etc all trying to vibrate the whole mess apart. The trouble is, jets like to be at very high altitudes in thin air to make them efficient fuel consumption wise. That's probably why we don't have them in our normal land bound vehicles yet...
