      Canada Day 🇨🇦

      July 1 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 79 °F

      So I did 600 miles today. I was fueled by Tim Hortons. I am in a small town called Pembroke and all I met was a cardigan (Corgi jokes). So I’ve been passing motorcycles all day for the first time in a long time and then somebody wished me a happy Canada Day. So everyone’s off and nothing’s open. Everybody went riding. Also limits my food options for the night.

      I was driving down and there was this taco truck or better yet a poutine truck. I have never had poutine in Canada so I thought I’d give it a try. I ordered the poutine with barbecued pork on top of it. As you can see by the pics. It was fabulous, I’ve already had heartburn medicine. In about an hour, I’m going to walk down to the riverfront park and I will add pictures of the park and firework display.

      I went to the Canada Day celebration at River front park. Super festive. Exactly what you would expect from a Fourth of July gathering. There were only three kiosks selling stuff. One was mini donuts (Canadians and their donuts, love em) coffee, and Domino’s Pizza by the box. There is a live band playing hey Jude. Grabbed a cup of coffee and some grass (not that kind, although plenty in the air) and waited for the fireworks. The fireworks were launched straight up over the crowd and I have never been closer to them. There was almost no delay between the explosion and the light. And soooo loud. Some were so big you had to turn your head to see them all.

      I did not wear enough deet for this 🦟
