Sunday, July 1, 2012 was a VERY special and unique Canada Day for us. After yet ANOTHER wonderful breakfast we boarded our coaches to drive to Schonbrunn Palace. This palace is the summer residence of the Austrian Imperial family, the Haftburg's. Maria Theresa (Empress of Austria) mothered 16 children with the most noted one being Marie Antoinette. This grand palace was the back drop for our Canada Day performance where tourists from many countries enjoyed our singing. Choir members handed out Canadian Flag pins and flags to various people who were in the courtyard. One male tourist asked a choir member if all women in Canada are this beautiful? We'll let you answer that question!
After our performance we had a guided tour of the palace..... outstanding. A vision of grandeur and opulence! We were then treated to lunch with desserts to die for.
Back to the hotel for free time to pack and prepare for the long journey back home.
