Can you stand to see a few more ???

I just had to show you a few more pics !
Just look at those stilt walkers and this was up hill too , check out their little teeny tiny shoes, is that not just halarious !!! I don't know how they hold their balance !!

This was in the oldest part of Quebec City, that sign makes me smile.......... ignore than man I have no idea who he was........... with a gazillion people milling around there is always some stranger's face or head in a shot..... ever get that ?/ So frustrating....

This was on the Island of Orleans , just look at that blue hydrangea bush, I have never ever seen blue hydrangea's except in small potted plants at Easter,I just had to take a picture of it, and will ya just look at the antiques on that old porch...

Will ya look at that window so simple..... it was on Orleans Island

Look at these spectacular doors !!! This was the front door to the cathedral of Ste Anne De Beaupre, you could not help but admire the work that went into those doors.

On the trip I spotted someone famous !!!!

Oh yeah......... and it gets better !!!!!!!!!!
Yup its Jack Sparrow !!!!
Captain Jack Sparrow is a fictional character from the who is portrayed by Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean

I was tickled pink !!!! Altho I know I didn't look it there.. we had walked so much that day in over 100 degree heat with a million tourists ,I was hot.... thirsty.... tired... and my knee was killing me.... but no way was I going to miss a chance to have my pic taken with him.!!!

This is called Place Royale in Petit Champlain the oldest part of Quebec City, those houses you see go back to the 17th century, simply delightful to see !!

Your wondering did I stop to smell the roses along the way ???
Why yes I did do that

Now if I can just get my crafting mojo back in gear I will be just fine. While I was gone hubby got rid of all my old pysanky dyes, I was so greatful to him ,he bought me all new wide mouth jars to start over with fresh dyes.I just need to get to it.............

Right now I am knitting my daughter's little cat Freda a sitting/sleeping mat with multicolored wool, it was something to do while my knee was upset with me I need to finish it before I move onto another project..... I am so bad for starting something and not finishing.......... like the quilt but I have an excuse for that one.... my poor fingers were in pain.
So my good friends one thing and one day at a time... right !!

Yes, Pysanky! I can't wait to see! Your trip looks so full of fun. Beautiful photos. Can you imagine me on stilts? I can barely walk in sneakers without tripping!

Aha! So that's where C'ptain Jack Sparrow has been hiding! hehe I would have been swooning all over him, that guy really had the look down pat!!!

I've always admired anyone who can walk on stilts...I'd probably kill myself before even getting up! lol

I so enjoyed all your pictures again, such fascinating scenery you got to see. xoxo

That is the way I am always getting excited about something new and not finishing what I was doing. I turn around and I forget what I was doing. Oh I love Cap'n Jack too,

Diane, link in; you have so many neat pictures and most of them have BLUE in them. Happy Blue Monday!

I am loving the tour!! We have the blue hydrangeas most down here, I wonder why that is? My grandmother told me their color depends on the acidity of the soil?
