Anyone that knows me, knows of my huge passion and love for boats, ships and tugs.
The Ku'ulakai is by far my most favorite tug.

Happy Canada Day!
"This special holiday celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. The origin of the name "Canada" comes from the expedition of explorer Jacques Cartier up the St. Lawrence River in 1535. The Iroquois pointing out the route to the village of Stadacona, the future site of Quebec City, used the word "kanata," the Huron-Iroquois word for village."
A different perspective of iconic Peyto Lake (more views below). The beauty of Canada is world famous and awe inspiring.
Wishing all my Canadian friends and all the fans of Canada a Happy Canada Day!
Happy Canada Day to all Canadians around the world!
Happy Birthday Canada ! / Bonne Fête du Canada !
Canada Day celebrates the birthday of Canada. On July 1, 1867 Canada became a new federation with its own constitution by signing the Constitution Act - formerly known as the British North America Act. Canada Day is a national statutory holiday celebrated in all provinces and territories.

Canada has a birthday on July 1st. Canada Day is a national holiday in Canada that is celebrated with family picnics, barbeques, and fireworks.
Canada Day is always observed on July 1st unless that date falls on a Sunday, in which case it is observed the following day. (Though many people still celebrate on the Sunday).
A long time ago, Canada belonged to Great Britain. Over time, parts of the country joined together and wanted to form their own government.
On July 1, 1867, the British government (under Queen Victoria) approved a plan which allowed Canada to become an independent country with its own government. This new nation, which remained loyal to Britain, was called the Dominion of Canada. At that time, the new Dominion of Canada had only four provinces (Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick). These days, there are 10 provinces and 3 territories.
Just want to wish all my Canadian friends a Happy Canada Day!
You have one of the most beautiful countries in the World!
I LOVE CANADA WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!!!!!!!!

So interestingly enough I believe this is the first actual photo of the Canada pavilion that I've ever posted. That's kind of funny because it is also home to my favorite restaurant on the Disney property Le Cellier. Le Cellier is also home to my favorite food possibly in the universe, poutine. If you've never had poutine before I suggest you remedy that as soon as possible. It is a divine food of fries, cheese and wine reduction sauce that transcends food itself to become an experience if you will. In fact I for one would prefer that henceforth instead of serving salad as a starter with every meal, salads world wide be replaced with poutine. I'll gladly eat my fair share.
The Canada geese practically take over of certain corners, ponds and lakes here in PA. They are so used to the sound of cars, heavy machinery etc. Traffic stop to let them cross the street no matter what hour of the day.
They are very aware of their surroundings, and even as they are close to humans, they are alert and ready to move away if we get to close to them, except if you have food to share with them. I personally enjoy seeing them gathering in bunches, swimming, walking or landing somewhere. I remember an occasion when a couple was crossing the street with their young ones, and one of them obviously concerned opened its wings to cover the little one until it was safe on the other side of the street. As much as we love seeing and observing them, we should never forget that they are wild animals...
If your want to know more about this "big" bird, here is a place that has awesome facts:
Have a great day!
Photography is my passion, and nature photography is my favorite.
I have been in Explore for more that a hundred times, and it is an awesome experience to have your photos showcased in such a special way.
I'm in many groups, and I only add my photos to them if they are not private.
I thank your for coming today, for leaving a comment, and make a favorite of yours this photo, (if that is the case) thanks again!
The best part of this forum is the contacts and friends that I have made over the years, that have the same passion for this art that is called photography!
