This is the spectacular Festival Theatre in Stratford Ontario
This is the beautiful Avon Theatre in Stratford Ontario.

Yes Yes Yes I am going soon !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To the Stratford Shakespeare Festival !!!!!!!!!

We will be there to see 3 plays in August

~~~~~~ ~~~~~ Macbeth

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Cirano Di Bergarac

~~~~~~~~~~~~~Julius Ceasar

I am leaving this Saturday for Ottawa to visit my daughter, then were going to the beautiful Quebec City for Les Fete De Nouvelle France ,that is such a special time of year to go visit that city.Its the most historical city in Canada.
Walking those old coblestone streets allows you to feel the atmosphere as it was in the 1700,esp when people are walking around in period costumes what a treat to see.
Were going to the Chateau Frontenac for High Tea, plus a boat tour down the St Laurence for the fireworks and of course we always take a nice drive around Orleans Island and down Chemin Royale its so worth the ride its spectacular views are breath taking !!

Then we are headed for Stratford to see the plays ... I have never been and I cannot wait !!!!
3 Shakespeare plays can you imagine !!!
Were booked for a picnic on the Avon River in between plays the first day.... this river is noted for its beauty and swans etc...
Stratford and surrounding area is noted for its antique shops !!! ~~~~~((( Yipeeee)))

Leaving Stratford we will then go onto Manitoulin Island and see what there is to see !!!
I have never been there either but oh my the pictures I have seen are gorgeous !
We will take several boat rides etc...

We will go through Barrie I have an Aunt who lives there I want to go visit, my Dad's sister.

So as you can see it will be a busy 2 weeks away.!!

I cannot wait !!!

I started making a list and packing little things weeks ago, I don't want to forget anything , while trying to pack light ( HA) wish me luck with that... LOL!!
I will take lots of pictures and share my trip when I get back ... see ya then ladies !!!
