Just because I love living in Brussels, doesn’t mean I don’t miss Canada. In fact, I think living outside your home country makes you even more patriotic, as Marilla touched on in her interview.
I’m sending out a huge thanks to fellow Canadian abroad, Tammy, who posted this video which I absolutely love. I may have even gotten a little choked up…. just a little. *sniff*
You see, it was filmed in Halifax, my home for ten years. There are scenes shot at the Peggy’s Cove lighthouse. Andrew grew up just down the road from those rocks and we spent a lot of time there. I recognise every building in the background and just about every tree and rock in that video.
I love all of the references in the song to things I miss and most of all I love the self-depricating humour so common to my fellow Canuks. We love to laugh at ourselves.
So wherever you are and wherever you’re from, I hope you have a fantastic Canada day! I can’t wait to walk those streets and stand on those rocks in August!
