Blue skies, balmy light breezes that gently caress bare skin … you think we would be out, celebrating this, our last day of our holidays. But no, we’re at home lounging around, soaking up the rays via the balcony (all 19 feet of it) and just taking it easy. No sight seeing today, no getting up early and putting on walking boots for a gentle, or otherwise, hike along one or other river. No forests, gardens, botanic or otherwise.
Just soft sighs of an absolutely fabulous holiday spent here, at home, in our own wonderful little city. The best place on the planet, if you ask me. But hey, I’m biased, after all, I am taking up residency here, and who wouldn’t. After spending any time here, you immediately fall in love with this beautiful, green city and yes, the people too.
Oh, look, Canada has lost one of it’s satellites!
But we haven’t been totally idle, after the five days of rain, we did get out and about for one last walkabout in the Old Quarter. We had a delicious lunch out, we bought ourselves some trinkets, and, like good home-grown tourists, knew where to find the best coffee in town at: Les Cafés Du Soleil, which, btw, has no online presence whatsoever. And, if you didn’t know where it was would probably never find it, such as it is—a tiny little hole in the wall!
More of what we saw …
And tomorrow, it’s back to work for us. And you, Dear Reader, when and where are you going for your holidays?
