We went down to the beach and watched the fireworks firing from a barge. Earlier, we'd been to a small welcome celebration for five school children from Japan who are here on an exchange organized by a friend of Mari's. The event was held in a dance studio in Etobicoke, as is the traditional form of celebrating Canada Day. And before that, The Boy and I went fishing at Bluffer's Park - a two hour jaunt only in the hours before they charged for parking at that park. The water level is still too high, though - the water's cloudy and there was nothing biting. We got back in time to make the family breakfast.
