Canada Day............

In Canada July 1st is Canada day 
Formerly known as "Dominion Day," Canada Day marks the anniversary of the Constitution Act of 1867, joining Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Canada province (now Ontario and Quebec) into a single country.

Julie and I took a 2 hour drive to Niagara on the lake for the day the weather was sunny and 28C. It was a non ham day even though the ham community celebrates Canada day with the Canada day Contest. I had to forgo it this year as a speciel day with Julie was calling my name more. During the 2 hour drive we past through lots of  beautiful farm lands then to orchards and it ends with the vineyards of Niagara on the Lake.
