Sharing Canadian Beauty

Dallas Rd. Victoria BeachfrontSharing Canadian Beauty

This Years Canada Day Celebration (July 01, for our American readers) is very special to me, and the reason why we are Sharing Canadian Beauty with you.

As I arrived in Canada in 1986, it  will be my 25 th. anniversary of Canada Day Celebrations, wow.

When you reflect on one memories,  it makes you wonder what made me move to Canada in the first place.

At the time we determined that (and you may laugh at this) I moved because of the high level of taxes in the Netherlands, but in reality and now on reflection , I did not move away from something, I moved towards the amazing beauty, spirit, grace and opportunity called Canada.

For many people that have never actually chosen to move from one country to another,  it is not something one thinks of one day and moves the next, and for me the entire process took about 18 months from initial research to locking the doors of the container with all our stuff to be shipped to Canada.

We will use this years Canada Day Celebration week as a  journey through our memories, experiences and reflections on the beauty of Canada, and we encourage every other Active Rain Member to share one or more of their Canadian moments or memories in our new Canadian Beauty Group.

Living in Victoria, BC, is easy to become somewhat blind to the natural beauty that surrounds us all the time, between the ocean, the beaches, the parks, history and the climate, we tend to take our surroundings for granted most of the time.....

So this week, we ask you to slow down and  allow the images and impressions we all take in at a million miles a minute, enough time to leave lasting impressions, that we can register and appreciate all those things that make us fall in love with our communities all over again....
Walking around with a camera (photo or video) almost immediately changes everything, and one starts looking at everything as a photo opportunity.

Regardless if you are Canadian or not, we would love for you to share your Canadian memories, your stories, pictures, video, and hear about all the place you know, cherrish and have fond memories about and create a post about them and share them with us in the newly created Canadian Beauty Group.

Here are a few more of our recent reasons why we are Sharing Canadian Beauty, and the reasons we love living in our Amazing Country.

Peter and Linda, I love Canada... from the the coast of Newfoundland to Vancouver Island, and though I have yet to visit, all the way to the far north.  I just posted my first blog to this group and to Canadian Communities.  I will be posting many more in the future.
