In the city, Canada Day weekend is when one typically spends more time in traffic than usual. Everybody is out, trying to maximize the time off, and take in the festivities.
I was in cottage country in Ontario for the first time, taking in lake life with camera in hand, watching how the other species celebrates Canada Day.
