Roadside: Canada Day

The irony of spending Canada Day in Charlottetown is not lost on us, but even more poignant is the opportunity to reflect on our trip across the nation.

At Victoria Park in Charlottetown.
First, the obvious: we are finally getting around to see our own country. Cities and regions that we haven't experienced before, including this city for Tyler and I, and Newfoundland and the Prairies for all of us. It's big, but it's fantastic.

But also, like David Johnston said today, we are seeing the Canada that is the envy of the world. Everywhere we go, in everything we do, we see nothing but unequivocal support, both in principle and in local advice. (Maybe not that guy in Peterborough!)

And especially, to everyone back home. For every tweet, every email, every message, text, like, bbm, phone call, every blog read, every photo looked at, and to anyone who has hosted and met us along the way. We can't say it enough, thanks so much.

Happy Canada Day!

Also, Happy Birthday to Kyle. Tyler and I are trying to plan something exciting. Maybe Charlottetown fireworks?
