Happy Canada Day!

We live in an incredibly beautiful country. My parents took us on a five  seven week road trip across Canada when we were kids (my dad corrected me on that one).  Yes, all five kids in a camper AND my oma for a portion of it too!  We went through every province and although I was in the awkward teenage years and felt embrassed by my family at times, I still thought it was gorgeous.

{I don't have great pictures to post because they are all in photo albums in the back of our hiking closet :)}

 Later on in university, I took the train across the entire country as well.  VIA Rail with a student pass was super  affordable.  We look forward to road tripping across Canada with our family as well, maybe in 3 years or so.  

I love where we live.  Some of my favourite places in Canada are; Gros Morne Park in Newfoundland,  Cavendish Beach in PEI, Liard Hotsprings in northern BC, Kananaskis in Alberta,  and Tofino on Vancouver Island, BC.  What about you, any favourites?  Happy birthday, Canada!

Love, Louise
