This post is 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 have. I tracked down a bar in Dublin that’s serving Caesars. I’ll use the word eh more than usual. 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 road trip was the first time I’d gone a road trip of this scope by myself. While I’d visited Toronto before, but I hadn’t 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 roadside attraction (“the world’s largest”), then I’m game. Wawa, Ontario claims fame to the world’s largest Canada goose. 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! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦
