A FreNcH CoNNeCtiOn

Hubby and I spent a few days travelling through Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont in the USA, before adding a touch of French influence to our lives by visiting Montreal in Quebec in Canada. The weather gods were playing nice again for us as we had fantastic hot dry days and balmy nights. Hubby had to dig deep to remember his "french"... but he did well !  He managed to buy food and drinks for us and although the hotel staff didn't speak ANY english... he reserved our room. 
What would I do without HiM !   : )
Along the way we saw....






In Montreal... we walked around the OLD town, visiting lots of little shops-souvenier and art, cafe's and historical buildings. The first pic shown however wasn't taken by me... I'm just showing what the city looks like for those who have never been to it.




 OLD town



 
Montreal even put on a fireworks display for us... how cool... and we watched it from a bridge over the St Lawrence seaway. It was magnificent !  This week the fireworks were put on by Canada and last week by Australia. It's an international competition and I believe China's was fantastic.


Next, we are off to Quebec City also in Quebec province. I'll show you more pic's soon.

First it looks like you are having a great time. I just found your blog after reading a comment on the "Want it, Need it, Quilt" blog. Imagine my surprise when I saw your name, Cheryll. My name too, with the 2 l's! I have never seen another one, I am 63 y/o! My Mother tells the story that she had chosen the name "Cheryl" prior to my birth if I was a girl. A fiend had her baby 1 week before my birth and "took" the name! My Mother was furious, so she kept the name and tacked on another L. Nice to meet you! My blog name is Corinne, after my grandmother.
