We have just finished celebrating our bicentennial, and the above link takes you to images of the sea and air parade which took place today. It was a wonderful experience and thousands of people turned out to watch the show! My country is the best there is. An awesome place to live and work! Come and visit us! We are friendly and welcoming, form the north to the south.
