Put a second coat of stain on my cabinet, and today I'll put some varnish or something on it. Then I should be able to install it tomorrow. Also adjusted the entrance door so that it latches properly. While I was doing all of these things, Ruth was doing some interior decorating by changing the fabric that goes on some of the interior panels that separate the cupboards. We'll show before and after pics when she's done. She also cleaned the front dash area with bleach because we had noticed a little mold that was probably from all of the interior moisture we experienced when we were cold in Nova Scotia.
In the evening, Ruth's Dad had bought us tickets to the Chinese entry in the International Fireworks competition. This has been a popular annual summer event since 1996 in the Ottawa area. It actually takes place at Lac Leamy in Gatineau which is in the Quebec side of the Ottawa-Gatineau Region. Ottawa, the capitol city of Canada is located in Ontario, and right at the Ontario-Quebec border.

Tickets were $20 each which is a little pricey for a 25 minute long show. It didn't help that we had a 50 minute drive each way to get there. But, it was a really good show, and there were some types of fireworks that we've never seen before. And, we made the trip worthwhile by also picking up a case of cheaper beer in Quebec! Thirty bottles of Alexander Keiths (a premium Nova Scotia beer) normally costs $46 in Ontario, but we got it for $37 in Quebec. I shall make an effort to make it last until we get back in the U.S.!
