beach fun, Canada Day, and a visit to the USS Arizona Memorial
for more information go to
Marg and her girls joined us that day! It was a hot one! Steve and Kyle stayed on and toured the aviation museum while all of us girls came home early, had lunch out then came back to the yacht club for a swim!!! We love that pool - it gets used a lot by us, everyday morning to night -
Here is part of the USS Arizona - its hard to believe that is was over 60 years ago that happened!
Watch out the kids have the big guns! Lots of cool stuff to see here!
I had a good look around, its really neat to look through a parascope!
These guys are in side a sub! cool,eh ?!
We had a great Canada Day celebration on board the Orca III - had the crew from Malachi, Heather and Rachel, and even some americans - new friends Ray and Ramona and kids, and the crew from Galatia. A good time was had by all. We ran all of our signal flags up both forestay and backstay and even put the giant Canada flag at the top of the mast - We were noticed!!
The kids had fun sitting up there singing the anthem!!
Ramona, Jocelyn, Rachel, Dionne and Marg all saying hi to our friend " Elizabeth from Shambala" - turns out Ramona and Ray know Shambala - what a small word!
"Dionne and friends" - me and my good buddies - loving Canada Day together! and yes we sang the national anthem!
