Our whole family went to Ontario for our nephew's/cousin's wedding. At first Larry said he would stay home and look after the place, but we managed to convince him that he should go. Larry and I and Meredith all travelled together from Abbotsford, David and Melissa from Edmonton. The three of us arrived in the very wee hours of Sunday morning, the day of the wedding. My sister had booked us into a hotel at the airport and left us a vehicle there to use, and it all worked out perfectly. It was a lovely wedding.
Larry flew back home on Tuesday afternoon, Meredith and I were staying until the next weekend, but flying home separately as Meredith was heading to check out Toronto for a few days. Thursday morning we took Meredith to the train station and waved her off on her trip. She stayed in a hostel for three nights. A young Korean woman there was impressed with Meredith 'living' out of her small carry-on bag. Meredith probably didn't tell her that she had 'wedding clothes' in there too!
Later in the morning Cathy and I headed off to Ottawa to pick up her daughter and the three of us headed over the bridge into Quebec to this spectacle.
Sculpture forms covered in plants.
The event was free, as were many things this year, in celebration of Canada's 150th birthday.
We were even able to get a pass for free parking along the street!
The plants this side of the train were little sunflowers, but since it was now almost the middle of October, they had stopped blooming.
Imagine that as a field of yellow, it would be something wouldn't it?
Horses rising out of the sea
We loved the musk ox. We felt like we would like to go and pat them 😄
The city of Shanghai, China did a couple of the displays
Thought this would be Paul Bunyan, but it wasn't, and I can't remember who.
You can get a sense of the scale of it here.
Cathy is wearing a Lole jacket that I had bought here from the thrift store, new condition, but was a bit tight on me. It fit her perfectly and looks great!
Heather and Cathy having a little fun
The mare and foal weren't made out of plants, but we loved them, and their setting was gorgeous.
A friend and her two dogs had stayed at the house while we were gone.
Larry said the dogs weren't overly excited to see him when he got back. More like he had just been gone for an hour or so.
