Canada Day Weekend

Leave a comment

On Saturday July 1, thousands of people came down to the park where the Canada Day festivities took place. My plan was to find a nice spot to sketch but there was no such thing; too much going on. Several government and community volunteer organisations used the occasion to strut their stuff such as musicians, dancers, gymnasts, ethnic groups and many more. There was entertainment for families with small kids and of course the usual array of food vendors.

Anyways, after an hour or so I left the melee to find a cool spot for some sketching.

Saturday’s picture was made on Fitzwilliam Street, which looked abandoned, hardly any pedestrians or cars, which is somewhat unusual for this area. Sunday’s sketch was another picture of the old museum. There are some views in town that I keep coming back to, including these two.
