I am back !
A view from the Island of Orleans
Ste Anne De Beaupre near Quebec City Inside Ste Anne De Beaupre A lighthouse on the way to Tobermory on the big ferry called Chi-Chemaun A perfect view of Manitoulin Islands We fed trouts on a fish farm. Chez Marie an old bakery from the 1600, it bakes its bread outside in huge brick ovens . Costume Costumes Costumes Costumes She was making a fishing net !
People in costumes in Quebec City Stilt walkers , they went uphill walking on coblestones !
This cannon ball grew surrounded by this tree in Quebec City its from the was of 1759.
This is the back of the Chateau facing the St Laurence river where we had High Tea inside the tall glass windows. High Tea ...soo delish !
Beautiful Chateau Frontenac where we had High Tea.
Farmland in Quebec near the city. The fortification wall of Old Quebec City built in the 1700,its near St Louis Street This is the Avon River that flows through the town of Stratford. A statue of Shakespeare outside the Theatre The Festival Theatre in Stratford, where we watched our 3 Shakespeare plays.
The trip was delightful we were gone almost 3 weeks, the plays were beyond my expectations, when ever I see the name Colm Fiore I will go see any play that man is in, he was fantastic ! Of the 3 plays Cirano Di Bergerac was my favorite !
Manitoulin Islands were splendid,quite majestic we took a 2 hour ride on the Chi-Chemaun ferry to Tobermory
We started the trip in Ottawa to visit with my daughter we also took her with us to Quebec City, which made it twices as much fun !
On our way home ,actually we were half way home he got a terrible phone call that my nephew had passed away, so we stopped at a cafe along the highway, made some phone calls and turned around heading back south to Burlington for the funeral.
My husbands nephew was only 36 and had a heart defect from birth, he never let that stop him he lives his life to the fullest, 2 months ago they offered him a heart and lung transplant, he refused it because he had enough , that was his decision.
I have never seen a funeral like his we had 3 police escorts over 1000 attended. The outpouring of love towards this young man was astounding.I always knew he was a people person. He was loved by so many.
As you can guess I am drained .. I slept for 3 days when I got home,but slowly picking up pieces. I am glad to be back !! Hug your children !!
