Canadian Thanksgiving means the Turkey Trot

I think I used this photo last year to say Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends. But it's a fun photo, so here it is again! Yes, on Sunday the 11th of October, our neighbors to the north are eating turkey with all the trimmings (or not) and tomorrow it's leftovers and a holiday.

The Monday after Thanksgiving is also the 11th Annual Turkey Trot on Vancouver's Granville Island. Participants can run, walk or stroll. Or, just watch, like I did a few years ago.

The flat and scenic 10K (6.2 miles) course starts at Granville Island and loops over the Burrard Bridge to the north side Sea Wall. From there it turns at Science World and winds back along the south side Sea Wall to Granville Island's Performance Works.

More than 2,000 revelers are expected at this Vancouver Thanksgiving tradition.

Hello there!!! Happy Thanksgiving!!! :) :) :) :)
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and every year I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, as it were-by reading "Thanksgiving novels." And in addition, those stories are mostly about family and friends, about coming together to heal old hurts and getting thanks for the gift of love. .. . ===
