Red Everywhere!

When OpSail visited Norfolk last week, the color red was everywhere!  There were red flags, red bicycles, a red train, and children dressed in red, white and blue performing.  It was a feast for the eyes!





 OpSail is an event that happens here occasionally - the last time in 2000.  This time, the theme was the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812.  As you can see, there was a lot going on!

Canada is celebrating the War of 1812 too. Many believe the war defined Canada so the anniversary is BIG here.
