I was delighted to get a Christmas card this week with a stamp featuring a vintage VW camper van w Canada flag and canoe, part of Canada Post’s Canadian Pride series. Other than that it’s a VW, it’s a pretty iconic Canadian image.
Here’s our own iconic image, the lovely Kay (aka Mrs Padre) alongside our ’85 Westy, Appa The Volksbison, and our canoe, Free, at Spruce Coulee Lake, Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, last summer. All that’s missing is a Canadian flag. It’s minus gazillion outside tonight, but as I revisit this picture I’m comfortably warm and summer sun lazy again. And was that a loon I just heard?
