Celebrating Canada Day
Okay, I apologize. We got rain. A nice downpour yesterday during the day but by evening it had cleared out very nicely to give us a most glorious evening for watching the spectacular fireworks.
At 10:30 in the evening, we joined the throngs of people who lined up along the Promenade overlooking the serene and verdant River valley to watch the fireworks over the distant High Level Bridge. It turned out to be a beautiful evening, balmy with just a whisper of a breeze. A magnificent moon, like a sovereign in the heavens, watched over his dominion of twinkling city lights below. Even the cacophony of cheering voices failed to quell the tranquility of this nature's oasis of the peaceful river valley in the middle of the bustling city rush surrounding it. I wish I had a camera that could capture the atmosphere. Still pictures just don't do the trick at all.
As we walked home after the display, a hint of delicate perfumes of various blossoms permeated the air to enhance the ambiance of a perfect summer evening. What a beautiful country we live in!
