Canada 150 is all the talk in Canada this year, and the big day, July 1st, is fast approaching. Welcome to week 333 (6/15/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. This week have fun listening to the Canada 150 song, a 2-minute video of Canadian moments (not my video), and photos that I’ve taken when I’ve been traveling around and spending time in my country over the past few years. I won’t be in Canada on July 1st to celebrate Canada 150, but I will be arriving in Vancouver on August 8th, and then onto Nova Scotia on August 22nd. Indy and I will be taking up residence in beautiful Annapolis Royal at least for a little while 🙂 Enjoy the song, the moments, and the photos.

A stunning Vancouver Island sunset taken way back in August 2006.
We’re still in B.C., but now on the outskirts of Vancouver in the bedroom community of Maple Ridge and speed ahead to 2016. I love how both photos have that same golden sky.
Now let’s whiz across the country to Nova Scotia and my home. Although, I have been to nine of our ten provinces, since moving to Asia my visits home have only taken me to British Columbia and Nova Scotia. There’s nothing I like better than taking photos in my home province. Here are a few of my favourites.
Staying with sunsets, I took this shot in 2012 at the Halifax Dingle a 10 or 15-minute drive from where I grew up.
You haven’t been to Halifax unless you’ve walked on the harbourfront boardwalk (one of the longest in the world and gawked at “The Wave.” There are “Do Not Climb” signs everywhere, but as you can see 🙂
What’s not to love about our stunning harbour? There will be tall ships visiting this year in honour of Canada 150.
Halifax is older than Canada 150, and the old Burial Ground whisks visitors back to 1749.
Thirty minutes from downtown you’ll find the tiny fishing village of Peggy’s Cove and one of the most visited lighthouses in Canada (and maybe North America)
The couple in this shot put the size of the Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse into perfect perspective. I’m sure she’ll be welcoming visitors throughout Canada 150.
Beaches like Rushton Beach on Nova Scotia’s Northumberland Shore boast warm water due to their close proximity to the jet stream. It’s not only Prince Edward Island that is home to red sand beaches!
Our final dollop of sunset gold is courtesy of the LaHave River.
Here is the song that inspired today’s Travel Photo Thursday, Canada 150 song by Bryan Anderson.
Canadians were asked to share their favourite Canadian moments in celebration of Canada 150.
