Happy Canada Day from the Border!

I thought it appropriate to wish everyone a Happy Canada Day since I am currently just across the border from Sarnia, Lambton County, Ontario. I have seen the city across the St. Clair River just about everyday since I've been up here in Michigan. The Blue Water Bridge crosses the St. Clair River to connect Port Huron and Sarnia.

Since my mother grew up here in Port Huron just across the border from Canada, I have several Canadian ancestors:
