Ready for Fun/Rural Thursday

His and her kayaks

How do you like this car's fancy head gear? Here in Ontario, kids are in school until the end of June but already cars are dressed for vacation fun.

Tomorrow is the beginning of a long weekend here in Ontario - Victoria Day Weekend. Informally it is considered by many to mark the beginning of the summer season.

Interesting!
In the U.S., the Memorial Day weekend at the end of May is the "kickoff" to the summer season.

Tanya said...

i was going to say exactly what my pal louis just said!

love the brightness in this! i don't mind canoeing but i've always been afraid to kayak. i have a strange fear that i will tip over and be stuck inside the kayak, upside down...i'll stick to canoes!

Kate said...

Have a lovely long weekend EG! Going walking in the Y R Forest? I'd like to, but I haven't been well just recently and I think I'll be staying close to home for the next little while.

Paul in Powell River said...

I'd like to try it, but I think I'd leave the camera ashore!

Dimple said...

Kayaking seems to be the "in" thing these days, I see many cars dressed as this one. Of course, they aren't all this bright!

Halcyon said...

Our unofficial start to summer will be the long Memorial Day weekend the last weekend of May. We see many cars with headgear like this here in the mountains. Kayaking is popular on the rivers in the Smokies.

Michelle said...

Love that head gear!

Makes me want to get right in the water too - enjoy the long weekend!
