Remembrance Day

Today is Remembrance Day here in Canada...And this afternoon Sandy went to visit the local cenotaph. Of course it was raining... it seems like it always rains on Remembrance Day! But the crowds of people still come out.
 There were quite a few wreaths on display. The front of the memorial had the big wreaths from the Government of Canada and BC, and the RCMP and the Canadian Forces.
 


Sandy had his poppy on too...to remember.

  3. Only sometimes?? There are poppy-sellers around every corner here! Must be a Commonwealth thing...
