Canada Day Evening Celebrations

Just got back from our last look out in Calgary. We went to the celebrations held in Olympic Plaza to mark Canada day.
It felt like a good Hogmanay or New Years Eve celebrations but in the warm. For us the highlight was the lighting of what was the Olympic flame on the top of the Calgary Tower. When the Olympics were here in 1988 this was (and still is) the highest Olympic flame. It is now only lit on special occasions like Canada day or important visitors like us!!.

Barbara can now say she has had her photo taken with 3 Mounties even though these were bicycles not horses.

Time to go to bed now so we can get up for the plane home in the morning.
