We crossed back into Canada yesterday. Coincidentally, it was Canada Day, a holiday with lots of the same festivities as our Fourth of July, and marked by a long weekend locally. Add to this the spectacular weather - this is the eleventh straight day of brilliant sunshine and warm temperatures - and you have conditions that have drawn every boat from every harbor from Seattle to Vancouver Island. It's downright festive, and totally unlike what we are accustomed to in the Pacific Northwest. Lots of Canadian mapleleaf flags flying from halyards.
