Happy Canada Day! I hope you had a great day and did something fun and interesting. I personally went to the harbourfront area and took a cruise on the Harbour Queen while watching the fireworks taking place at Bayfront Park. This was a great way to avoid the crowds and have a prime viewing spot for photos or just enjoyment of the occasion. It was an unusually chilly night but we braved the cold winds for a fun and different way to cruise.
I've done the daytime cruises on the Harbour Queen before. Stunning views and fresh lake breezes are so relaxing, but the evening cruise was lots of fun too and you could not have chosen a better view for the fireworks displays. I loved how the fireworks reflected on the water and that's just not something you can see from land. It's a completely different perspective.
