To my neighboring Canadian acquaintance, Murray- A very happy Canada Day to you and your beautiful family!

Do you have an acquaintance desiring a boat model such as yours?

Hope future ferry schedule into Prince Rupert will allow us to make another gathering. Enjoy the day my friend.

Nice video, thanks! Reminds me that this time last year I was in Canada. Unfortunately, I was in Quebec, so Canada Day wasn't a big deal.

After watching that video I can't wait to go back!


PS, that's not me, just some random guy on the docks who was showing off his catch last 1 July.

Hi Al,

Thanks!

We went on an overnight hike celebrating the Nature around us instead of joining in the parade and town celebrations this year.

Hope you guys have a great July 4th

Looking forward to see you again!

A little late to the party, but yes a great video. Chris Hadfield is a Canadian hero. Fighter pilot, astronaut, first man to sing Major Tom from space, and pretty well too!

Hi Murray and all Canadians- As Murray says, "Nature around us" comes home quickly as one reads of the tragic forest fires that are devastating many locations in Canada as well as America. My prayers for those segments of B.C. that I often drive through, Cashe Creek, 100 mile house, Ashcroft.

(Rather than a new thread).FYI,a contingent of 50 Aussie firefighters is travelling to BC to help fight the forest fires. They get plenty of practice here in summer, but in winter it`s quiet. Hope they can help, and give your guys who must be exhausted, some relief.
