July Project Update

Well, I think the weather has done us in, because, since last Sunday, we’ve had 5 days of almost constant drizzle and or downright heavy downpours. Like yesterday, when it rained so heavily, I though I was back in SE Asia during the Monsoon season. Not quite the level of flash flooding, but certainly enough to make us think we might see Noah on his way past the windows!

The upshot is, it’s looking likely we won’t be able to visit the last couple of places on our list before the OH goes back to work. But hey, we had a good run at it with almost 3 solid weeks of glorious weather that were only interrupted, here and there, by a couple of days of rain. So we can’t complain.

I shall continue to cover and post about anywhere we do get to go too, regardless, so you can see just how many exciting places and events there are here, in Québec! Coming up at the beginning of August, we have the 4-day festival of Nouveau France where half the population dress up in period costume from the 17c! Always great fun. Followed by a 10-day celebration of Québec arts and crafts, housed outdoors, under tents, in the 400th Gardens, in the old port.

Posts and photos to come.


  1. Well, I’m sorry to hear about the weather, Alex. But at the same time, I think how lucky you are to live in such a lovely place with so many things to do and see. I hope you’ll get the chance to do/see at least a few more while you have the time. It always amazes me how quickly a few weeks go by…

      It was bound to happen, Margot. We knew we had to squeeze in as much as possible every day we got up and saw blue skies. We were really lucky with how many days we’ve had, so no complaints. And we did get out and about to some wonderful spots and will have enduring memories. And August is shaping up to be another exciting month too, regardless of what the weather throws at us.

  2. Oh no, that must be disappointing. We’ve had so much heart recently, my poor dog is just lying down in the coolest part of the house (which is still warm) looking miserable.

    I hope the weather improves for you soon, fingers crossed.

    Indeed, the sun arrived again today, for the day. And we were able to get out for a walk and a lovely lunch, Vera. Still scorching hot, but not, thankfully, humid. So we bolted out the day to take advantage of the sun. ☺️

      It’s actually hurricane season, but the rains they bring always makes me think monsoon, Veronica!

      Oh, anf gladcto hear you’re getting some good weather too!
