(no subject)

Monday was Heritage Day, and we walked over to Princes Island to check out the craft displays and entertainment. We didn't stay long -- it was too crowded and noisy -- but I snapped this pic of kids demonstrating their martial arts moves.

Last night, I was awakened by a huge thunderstorm. I'm a sound sleeper, and in fact I slept through a fire alarm that went off later in the night, but the lightning flashes were so bright I could see them through my closed eyelids, and so close I could only count to three between the flash and the thunder. With any luck, we'll have another storm tonight.
