O Is For Ontario

I am born and bred Canadian, from a city in Ontario called Hamilton.

We have our own theme song. Give a listen, it's pretty catchy.

Our Provincial flower is the Trillium. It is white mostly, but I have seen in red.

We don't have any oceans here, but we do have the St. Lawrence Seaway that opens into the Atlantic Ocean.

I love traveling throughout my province. Seeing all the beauty Ontario has to offer. I hope you might decide to check it out too!

There's no place like home.

  1. Hi Freda,
    I've been up your way a couple of times. Beautiful country! Have a great day!

    Just Books

  2. Perfect "O" post.

  3. I have never been to Ontario but want to make the trip during the fall one of these years. I'd love to see the St. Lawrence Seaway in October or September. I am told the colours are phenomenal!

    I am just a few provinces away, in Alberta.

  4. I've never had a chance to visit Ontario. I've made it to Montreal, but that's it. I would love to visit one day.

  5. In my show biz traveling days, I would spend about three weeks in Ontario--2 performing and 1 week off which we'd always spend in Toronto. This was always one of my favorite times of the year's tour. It was often still snowy since it would be right around Easter. But often the weather would be very lovely as well.

    The people were always wonderful. We had great audiences as well. I always bought a lot of music and books while I was there because we got paid in Canadian money and I didn't want to lose anything by exchanging it. I opened a bank account with Royal Bank I believe it was and deposited everything else I had left. I eventually had it all transferred to my U.S. account and lost money on it, but if I could have waited til recently it would have been a pretty even trade I guess.

    But, yes, I do love Ontario and would love to go back for a visit now and then. Mmmm! Tim Horton's coffee and muffins!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
