Happy Canada Day

I enjoyed the weather in the GTA and had fun watching a duck race (rubber duckies) and some spectacular fireworks. Happy Birthday Canada. The fireworks, above, are a composite shot and took place in Acton.

The rubber ducks start in a bucket of a front end loader and are dropped off the side of a bridge. People buy tickets and if their duck (numbered on the bottom) crosses the line first, they win the top prize. They are a big group when first dropped but after a couple hundred metres they start to open up. The duck race was in Glen Williams.
