Fireworks tonight in the northern sky

I really need to paddle the Straits again soon. PA Point to Race Rocks is a little over 10 miles, a sporty crossing, filled with navigational considerations and dancing the shipping lane two-step. It’s a little like playing a big, wet interactive game of Frogger.

My schedule opens up a bit in August. I’ll have to put that one on the calendar.

I got thinking about that crossing this morning because today is Canada Day, the day that our brothers and sisters north of the border celebrate their independence from the European Union. Or commemorate those who fought in the great war of liberation against the French, or the Moors, I can’t remember. But it’s a big day, anyway.

I don’t think Americans appreciate how lucky we are to have Canada as a neighbor. The Great White North puts up with a lot from us, and asks for very little in return. It’s not like we live next door to Lebanon, or Bosnia; it could be a lot worse.

So, Happy Canada Day to all, and God bless us everyone.
