This post is being published on Friday June 30, 2017. The next day (July 1st) is Canada Day and this year Canada is 150 years old. Of course I’m living in Ireland right now, so I’ll be celebrating Canada Day abroad. Don’t worry I’ve made Nanaimo bars to enjoy. I tracked down a bar in Dublin that’s serving Caesars. I plan to liberally use the word eh more than normal. Maybe I’ll call someone a hoser. Who knows, eh?
To celebrate Canada Day I wanted to share this photo of a Canada goose statue I took in Wawa, Ontario. Yes that’s the name of the town. A few years I was on a road trip from Calgary, Alberta to Richmond Hill, Ontario. This was the first time I’d done a road trip of this scope by myself. While I’d visited Toronto before I’d never driven in Ontario. One thing I didn’t realize until that particular trip was how big Ontario is (and how beautiful it is as well). I’d spent a night in Thunder Bay and thought I’d be able to drive right onto to Sault Ste. Marie or Sudbury, but it was too much driving in one day (for me). So I stopped in Wawa for a night.
Road trips are something I love and if there’s some cheesy road side attraction (“the world’s largest”) then I’m game. Wawa, Ontario claims fame to the world’s largest Canada goose. Actually the town recently unveiled another Canadian goose statue in honour of the Canada 150 celebration. Both statues are 8.5 metres high.
I hope all Canadians have a wonderful Canada Day no matter where in the world you are. If you are looking for more Canadian content why not read my post from Canada Day last year Top Travel Bloggers Pick The Best Places in Canada. You can also see some more of My Favourite Places in Canada.
Happy Birthday Canada! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦
