Happy Canada Day

Kids enjoy the beach leading up to the holiday

Just before the hottest weather arrived, some patriotic young kids had their flags out in preparation for Canada Day.

The trio was combing the beaches at Kin Park in Chemainus and only too happy to pose for a photo.

The weather only got hotter in the days after the Courier encountered them enjoying an early summer day.
