Happy Canada Day!

Workout:  4 miles (6.something km)

Did I mention I’m on holidays for 2 weeks?  🙂

It’s a gorgeous morning in Ottawa for Canada Day.  Apparently, there are already 100,000 people on Parliament Hill to celebrate the day and see Will and Kate.   I wonder if they are sitting on the patio at Rideau Hall drinking coffee the way I am on the back deck.

They attended a casual BBQ last night for exceptional youth last night.

I threw on some sunscreen, my sunglasses and grabbed my iPod for an early morning power walk.  It’s glorious out.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing, it’s quiet because it’s a statutory holiday — no stores or businesses open.  Quiet everywhere but Parliament Hill.

This is the Hill on a regular Canada Day.  Can you imagine what it will be like today?  Too crowded for this girl, and the best coverage will be on our local TV station.  Crowds are expected to top 500,000.

Plan for the rest of the day:  some reading on the deck, and a drop-in to a friends pool party.

Happy RELAX day!
