ABC Wednesday - H

This week at ABC Wednesday, H is our letter of focus.

Well, I have not been too happy today - difficulty with my computer and my new internet provider have hindered my ability to post. But, even if I lack photos, I am posting!

H is for cities and towns  in Ontario that  start with H and that I have visited.

H is for Hamilton - home to the Hamilton Tiger Cats (football team), Dundurn Castle, and the Art Gallery of Hamilton - to name just a few highlights. Hamilton also has the hospital where my husband had his kidney transplant and still attends transplant clinics several times a year. 

H is also for Haliburton - a lovely town that hosts a summer of art courses at the Haliburton School of Fine Arts. For many years I attended a week of classes with my children - a fabulous way to spend a holiday- with art and cottaging.

H is also for Hastings,Havelock, Hearst and Holland's Landing.

H is also for Halifax, Nova Scotia - a city I have not visited but am so eager to too.

ABC Wednesday - E and F

This week at ABC Wednesday, F is front and centre.

F is for FLAG

Every country has a flag that is symbolic of that country.

Until 1965, Canada shared the Union Jack with  Britain. The struggle to get its own flag is quite a fascinating story. But on February 15, 1965, the new flag was inaugurated at Parliament Hill.

The red borders and 11 point stylized red maple leaf is easily one of the most recognizable flags in the world.

And I am so very proud of it.

E and F stand for the two official languages of Canada

English and French.

Canadians study French all through school and I truly believe that learning a second language improves our minds. I just wish that we could all be more bilingual.
