As today is Canada Day, it seems appropriate to post Canada-Day-themed pictures.  However, as there are no photos that seem to have been taken during this holiday in old-time Westport, the best we can do is show some of our summer-themed photos taken at what is now The Lions Club Beach.  Although these photos are a little more recent than we usually post, it seemed a fitting way to kick off the celebrations that will be held there this afternoon and evening.


A happy and safe Canada Day to all of our readers from Vintage Westport!
