A Wanderer’s Noticing — Canal Flats, BC on Canada Day Weekend

Canal Flats is a sleepy town, known for being on the north end of BC’s Columbia Lake. It is headwaters for the mighty Columbia River that eventually drains to the Pacific Ocean in the USA Pacific Northwest. The photo above is a band playing at the beach to commemorate and early Canada Day. It was all a surprise for us — my family and I were just in for a day at the beach, not knowing that this party would be going on.

Big old cake with pieces for all to enjoy.

It’s family. My parents. Cousins. Nieces and nephews with there partners. My kids, my son in-law. That’s Columbia Lake in the background. This is the place where I most often get to remember family and the extended layer and a belonging that comes with that.
