What’s Good This Week – Canada Day Edition

Let’s Get Ready to Celebrate Canada in Vancouver – 150 PLUS YEARS

I’m tagging this Canada Day #Canada150plus because Canada has been here a lot longer that 150 years! Nevertheless, we’ve got a country to celebrate and more and more reasons to celebrate as we find new ways to unite, merge and define our own versions of this great country. We’re over on Vancouver Island, exploring our province once again, and Michael’s Dad has just returned with fresh crabs from the ocean in Qualicum which we will boil up tonight. Our country is tasty and full of so many offerings up right from our own backyards. Make sure you eat and drink Canadian this weekend! Here’s some suggestions of how to do so.
