Victoria Day

Happy Victoria Day!!

Victoria Day is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 25 (that's today!) in every province and territory. It honours Queen Victoria's birthday. So far this weekend, the weather has been so so. Saturday, we had sun and warm temperatures, yesterday it was partly sun / cloudy and cool. Today, it's cool and cloudy with some sprinkles thrown in. However, according to the radio forecast, that's just on the Avalon Peninsula as the rest of the island is having lovely weather.  It has also been known to snow on this weekend too!

This holiday is usually when all the campgrounds and parks are officially opened for the summer and the fishing season opens.
