Victoria Daycommemorates Queen Victoria's birthday and is always celebrated the Monday before May 24. Today, here in Canada, we are just beginning a three day weekend. The first long weekend of the season and commonly celebrated as the blast-off weekend to summer.
Early on a Friday, people leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, only to hit the hustle and bustle of the highways. Their destination is Cottage Country, for May 2-4 (as we so affectionately call this landmark weekend) is the date marked on our calendars to "open the cottage".
............or, the trailer
"Opening" these summer residences, requires a lot of cleaning to clearout the cobwebs (and mice visits) of the winter months.
Taking a break from all that rug beating, it is always fun to venture intothe closest little town for a spot of lunch.
...and then maybe stroll down to the beachto check out the action
For the younger people, May 2-4 heralds the beginning of summer parties
All too soon, the weekend comes to an end and we return to our everyday lives, looking forward to the next long weekend that is circled on our calendars.
Wishing everyone a very Happy and Safe Victoria Day Weekend
