I decided to do something different this year for Canada Day. I rode my bike along Chesterman’s beach towing my kite behind me. I attached a Canadian flag below the kite! Not only does it look great but also acts like a rudder. It keeps the kite from diving. (which Bat kites are famous for) I also attached a colourful fish windsock!
Now this is where I need to explain something about beaches……they are always windy! Unfortunately for me, the usually breezy beach was very calm. However the speed of my bike was just enough to counter the lack of wind and keep the everything aloft!

Hi Wayne, it’s great to see this picture of you and what a fun idea. I hope you had a wonderful Canada Day. It was on Friday, wasn’t it?
Yes,It was Friday Robbie. I recorded this Friday with no intention of posting it on my blog but realized I could the next day.
Normally I’m behind the lens, so a bit camera shy I guess.
Happy Canada Day, indeed! What a terrific tribute, Wayne. AND it was great for the chance to match a voice and face to the name! Carry on.
A few people have mentioned that Annette. I usually stay behind the scenes (curtain) and let my pictures speak for me. I think this is the first time I went public?
Happy Canada Day, stranger!
Nice to see you, Wayne! Hope you had a great Canada Day! I just heard some thunder to the NE. Maybe we’ll get some fireworks from Momma Nature.
Thanks Audrey, I sometimes crawl out from under my rock to make an appearance!
I am smiling, Wayne, at this great adventure of yours. Windy balancing act and so festive. Nice to see what you look like, too. Looks like you had a fun Canada Day.
A few people have mentioned that as well Jet. I guess nobody knew what I looked like? I’ve never been one to glam for the camera.
Happy Canada Day Wayne! Love the kites.
Thanks Cindy! You should fly a kite with a camera attached?
Good to see and hear you Wayne! Love the arial display!
Thank you! Once in 10 years I come out front.
Happy Canada Day, Wayne–you are so creative, glad you could share! Have a fun but safe weekend!
thanks Terri but tomorrow is your BIG celebration!! People set fireworks off making all sorts of troubles. So you be careful as well please.
Yep, but all weekend long here, apparently! I already hear illegal fireworks which scares my dogs :( We will be careful for sure!
Happy Canada Day! :-) Nice to see you in person!
Thank you Marha,I’m generally a shy person.
I’d say that your Canada Day celebration was a success! The kite stayed aloft, you filmed it, and you didn’t go crashing to the ground. I’m sure your Oscar awaits . . .
I think my technical skills may be better than my acting. So I’ll leave the Oscar for someone else Liz!
Happy Canada Day, Wayne! Good to see you!
Thank you Lavinia! I come out once every ten years. Next time you see me It’ll be in the funnies!
Happy Canada Day!
Made me smile, Wayne! Definitely deserves an award – complicated manoeuvres there!
Thanks Adam! I can see Scout chasing me all the way and literally running circles around me!
Hope you had a great Canada Day – of course you did! Biking with flags!! So cool!
This is so fun Wayne, nice to see you and pretty good riding on a beach with all of that. Love the cover shot at the top as well. Happy Canada Day to you :)
I keep subscribing to your channel but never get ant notifications?
Thank you Wayne, did you click the bell icon? That is what puts the new videos in your feed section and sometimes you tube doesn’t always put them there if more popular videos are ahead of them. I save my favorite you tube channels in a folder so they are easier to find for me. 😊
I didn’t see a “Bell” icon but I did see a button (Subscribe) below where you put in your email address.
Yes, usually there is a box under the description that has the channel name and to the right is a subscribe button and a bell icon. I am looking at your channel now and see it there. I just watched your hummingbird video. We were in Washington and saw my first Rufus hummer. That is what it looks like on your video.
Happy Canada Day Wayne! Had my kids and their cousins been on your beach they definitely would have been cheering you on.
Thank you Beth and I imagine your dogs would be running beside me as well!
Yes they would be
How clever you are Wayne – bravo for the performance and yes, next year an Oscar will be waiting for you in the wings!
thank you Linda!
Sounds like a good way to celebrate! Good problem-solving skills.
It was fun Jane and thank you for commenting today!
Happy Canada Day and you would definitely get my Oscar vote!!🙂 On those days you can’t be with your friends on the water, it would be wonderful to see videos of you riding throughout Tofino!🙂
with all the tourists it’s getting trickier with each passing day!
Happy Canada Day!
Totally awesome. I would never have thought of trying that. Nice to have the wide open beach. You are in a beautiful spot. Enjoyed matching the face to the talented photos and nice messages. Be well my friend. – David
Here’s your nomination for an oscar. Just cut and paste into the Oscar Entry Form. :)
