North America Celebrates

Thought about posting more, but decided instead to do a bit of Americana as all of North America is in the midst of a long weekend celebration honoring Canada Day and the 4th of July.

It can take some doing to find the Maple Leaf flying around these parts, but here it is flying in New Hampshire at the Eagle Mountain House.

Hope that all Canadians are still celebrating a wonderful holiday weekend! I never think of Canada without my heart growing just a bit larger.

And to my countrymen, I wish a delightful holiday weekend filled with memories, happy times, good food, the joy of companionship and family, and the love of country, which knits us all together no matter what our political leanings may be. God bless us all.

Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are!


  1. Delightful post, all!!!

    Did you stay at the beautiful old inn hotel? Oh joy! I haven't even seen such a place in a long time. :-) Wrap-around-porch... Inviting sitting room inside, I bet... Rooms and rooms and rooms and rooms and rooms. Etc. Etc. Etc. :-)))))

    Oh the houses on your trip, decorated for the holiday. And your house, the same. :-)

    And it's perfectly purrrrrrrfect weather today (Sat.). Lets hope it continues.

    And that all will have a safe and lovely 4th of July Holiday Weekend.

    (You still have it framed? Amazing!) :-))))

    Gentle hugs,


  2. Simply gorgeous photos.

    My Grandpa was raised in Canada. Our kids just found out about this heritage this year and are thrilled. Mikey wore a Canada shirt to work yesterday.

    I love North America. Beauty Abounds. Happy Independence Day to you.

  3. What a lovely share, Vee. I love old homes & front porches.

    May her flag fly high & proud forever over this great land ... may God see the changes we need & grant us that blessing.

    Happy 4th, sweetie.

    TTFN ~

  5. Vee,
    I haven't been to the Eagle Mountain House in years. A grand old hotel. We used to spend a lot of time in the "valley". We are hunkered down in the cabin. Kids come tomorrow.

    Have a great 4th.

    My Mother in Law is from Canada and we love to visit family there!

    Happy Independence Day!
