Finding my September rhythm

We got back from vacation and it’s taken me a few weeks to ensure we were all set for the kids to return to school and to get back into a rhythm. There are still so many things around the house that we’ve still got to unpack and hang up and there’s never enough time for all the things that I want to do with my knitting!

Now that I’m back and somewhat settled, I’ll show you bits of my vacation. I did manage a bit of knitting on the trip, but that was minimal.

Our first stop was in Québec City. We were staying at Mont Ste. Anne (just a bit east), which turned out to be a fantastic choice. Despite the kids having a day where they didn’t seem to want to walk at all, we got to see a bit of old Québec, like the armoury:

And we stopped in at the church in Ste. Anne de Beaupré:

What drew my interest were the mosaics just inside the doors. The fountain out front of the church was very very tempting for the children on a hot day. I just turned to snap a few pictures and when I turned back they were both a bit wet. Sam, not for the last time on this trip, managed to get his bum completely drenched.

Our next stop after a long day’s drive was Fredericton. We went downtown for dinner at a pub and I caught a bonus Art Deco building in the fading light. It is the former building of the New Brunswick Electric Power Commission.

All of this travel was getting us close to our mid-trip destination of Halifax.

    1975. I remember that in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick all the larger towns and cities had British names and the small ones had French names.
