Je me souviens

Headed for le vieux Québec last Wednesday, taking the old highway along the Saint Lawrence which is a beautiful, peaceful and scenic drive. Although the weather was fine for most of the drive, Québec welcomed us with a thundershower.

But after that we were treated to four days of warm winds and sunshine. There were cool evenings to take a martini on the terrace above the Boardwalk, listening to an Italian tenor serenading the passers-by with Neapolitan love songs.

Les Québecois were friendly and welcoming and have a degree of tolerance that I hope might have an effect on Audrey.

The trip back was equally delightful with an opportunity to closely experience the mighty Saint Lawrence on a breezy day. The expanse of this river is awe-inspiring.

In a village along the banks of this river we encountered some very interesting characters, two of whom came home with us. A certain resemblance to persons known has been suggested???

What a wonderful trip!

Hahaha! All I can say is:


I love the description of your evenings on the terrace, and, while we have never actually met, I have to agree about the resemblance between the souvenirs and certain vacationsers!

LOVE this post! DCW, you just made my day!

Ben, là... si proche de Montréal mais si loin?

P.S. While the "rabbit crossing sign," initially caused me some angst, I quickly came to terms that Quebec is 4 provinces over - nowhere near hopping distance to my home ;)
