There Were Wings and Crowns and a Flower Strewn Chariot

When we got stuck on one side of the street we wanted to cross a week ago Sunday, at least we had something to watch while we waited, because the reason we were delayed was that a parade was going by.

Reading the banners that preceded each new band I determined that it was being held by the Portuguese community.

On another note, we just felt the earth tremble here in Toronto, as there was an earthquake to the east of the city. Nobody was injured but it was a very strange sensation indeed. It’s a long week-end here in Canada so I guess we can say that things got off to a rocking start.

Here’s hoping you have a great one,
