Queen Elizabeth Visits My Office
Well, not really but on July 6th, she was just across the street. I am fortunate in that the windows of my office offer a postcard view of the Ontario Legislative Building in downtown Toronto, Ontario (pictured to the right from my office windows with crowds gathering to see Queen Elizabeth).
The day was mercilessly hot and humid yet undaunted, the 84 year-old monarch completed a lengthy 'walk about,' speaking with many of the gathered well-wishers, inspected a guard of honour, received a military 21-gun salute, and eventually made her way to an awaiting car that whisked her and Prince Philip off to the airport for a trip to New York City where she later in the afternoon addressed the United Nations.
I'm almost certain that her last wave pictured below, was for me - well, maybe!
