It's been a blast, but as they say...it sure will be nice to be home again!
The last day here is rather quiet. The crowds have all gone home or slowly made there way down to Vancouver. Slept in until 9 am, went to Wal mart and bought a bag to put in all of the souvenirs...ho,ho,ho. Had an oriental salad at Wendy's for lunch and went back at 4 pm for a chicken sandwich.
It has been a great experience. The biggest thing that I will remember will be the colours from all of the different countries, the languages and accents, the faces, the sounds of cheers, bells and whistles. But most importantly will be the pride I sensed in being Canadian. The sea of red and white flags, Canadian hats and painted faces made me feel happy and secure. We truly do live in the greatest country in the world and have the greatest neighbor in the U.S.A.
Thank you Bev for holding up the fort while I was gone and for supporting me with this opportunity to be gone for over 3 weeks.
Thanks for all of your e-mails and support.
