Ever since I can remember I've heard the comment that there is "no difference" between Canadians and Americans. I respectfully beg to differ as there is a difference on so many levels! We have unique Canadian culture consisting of Canadianisms, a Canadian perspective on world events, Canadian cuisine as well as products and foods only available in Canada. This blog is dedicated to celebrating all things Canadian from "my perspective" as a Canadian. Please enjoy your visit and be sure to visit often.

Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We're different people from you and we're different people because of you. Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is effected by every twitch and grunt. It should not therefore be expected that this kind of nation, this Canada, should project itself as a mirror image of the United States.

Cypress Lake in Ontario

Cypress Lake, Ontario

One of our favourite camping spots is Cyprus Lake Campground at Bruce Peninsula National Park.  The campground opens onto Cyprus Lake.  It is rustic with no serviced sites but the atmosphere and landscape is well worth it!  Cyprus Lake Campground is about 15 km south of Tobermory, Ontario where the Bruce Trail begins.  The trail runs through the park an along with other smaller trails provides beautiful photo opportunitys while hiking.  This park and the surrounding area is a must stop for tourists and outdoor entheusiasts! 


  1. It looks perfect, providing it doesn't get too crowded :-)

  2. It's gorgeous there John! I've never seen it very crowded and we've been there a lot of times. Thanks for letting me know about the link too. I appreciate it.
