Canadian Thanksgiving

We’re thankful to be living in Canada. As a nation, it’s far from perfect, but in this most troubling of years, we’re delighted to be here.

Delighted to be here

Looking ahead, I really, really hope I’ll be writing a thanksgiving post next year that includes giving thanks for a calmer, kinder and gentler post-COVID world, where a vaccine has proved successful, and we’ll be laughing at how ridiculous it was that “alternate facts” was ever a thing. You have to hope…


We’re always thankful for our family and friends; near or far, wherever you are, we know we’re lucky to have you.


If you’re celebrating (a safe, socially distant and bittersweet) Thanksgiving, I hope it’s a good one! If you’re not celebrating, I hope you’re safe and well, and you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. I enjoyed your Thanksgiving post, pc, with the moody mountain seaside photos, curious Scout and a delicious-looking ale. I appreciate your thoughts on thankfulness, and wish you a relaxing and serene holiday. And I, too, hope that by this time next year things will be on a more happy and safe keel. Cheers, my friend, I’m thankful to have you and Mrs. PC for friends.


    1. Thanks, Jet! We hope all is well with you. We’ve had all the autumnal weather over the long weekend, from big wind and rain to warm(ish) beach sunshine, and all of it a much needed break. We so very much hope November brings you a better political outlook…
      Take care!

  2. Love the calm harbor scenes and hopes for a kinder and gentler year. After all the adventures that you have shared, I enjoyed learning and seeing more about your beautiful country in Charley Boorman’s coast-to-coast journey across Canada. I was surprised at how much I did not know about our neighbors and what a perfect country for endless adventures. Thank you for sharing your humor, thoughts and adventures each week and Harper sends hugs to you, Mrs. PC and Scout this Thanksgiving.


    1. Thank you! I’m going to track down Charley Boorman’s Canadian adventure – he looks ready to try just about anything, even if he shouldn’t…
      Yes, here’s really really hoping November brings a much needed change in political fortunes to our southern neighbour. We haven’t crossed the border since the last election, and miss our travels there.
      Have a great week ahead!

  3. A little late here, but I hope you & yours enjoyed a most happy holiday, and that next year we’ll be able to celebrate a brighter picture for ourselves & all the planet. To paraphrase Emily, Hope is like a thing with feathers we can fly on, rather than lie roasted like a holiday turkey– though that, too, is a tasty thought at times like this….
