Victoria Day in Bloom

We had been waiting for this moment with the same eagerness as an American teen about to turn 21. Finally, we hit the Canadian jackpot: a long week and hot weather.

It’s Victoria Day in Canada and the weather has been gorgeous for the past three days. Shorts-and-sandals weather, not “hey, let’s grab a hat, gloves and a coat to go for a walk!” weather. Bank holidays don’t mean anything for Feng and I, we usually still have to work, but enjoying some nice weather between assignments made all the difference.

The annual Canadian Tulip Festival had been going on for a couple of weeks already but I refused to go wearing my winter jacket and yes, it was that cold last weekend. Today, it was perfect. We joined the busloads of tourists, mostly Indian and Chinese, and walked around Dow’s Lake, looking for the perfect flower (me) and trying to eat a giant ice cream cone before it melts (the guys).

Happy long weekend, Canadians! Flower and ice cream porn below…
