|Lower town Quebec City - reminds me of England!|
Of course me being me I won't be home for long - will be flying off to Edmonton for a long weekend at the end of the month. My sister is moving to Toronto this summer so this will likely be my last trip to Edmonton - I have a soft spot for the city having lived there for a year in the early 70's going to school...plus be good to see my sister too. :)
After that...who knows..,nothing booked. But I am sure there will be eventually!!!
This morning I availed myself of the free buffet breakfast but I paced myself and did not take very much as I knew I wanted to nibble during the day. The breakfast was in a very nice restaurant around the corner and was delicious - the usual eggs, bacon, crepes, etc.

|Espresso and macarons. Ah.....|
|Back up we go! Yes I was too lazy to walk up the stairs and it was only $2!!!|
|Mural with historical figures and modern day together.|

I am back to finish up packing and relax a bit. Then I will check out and roam the streets for a couple of hours. Pick up a baguette for the plane trip. I change planes in Ottawa. I will get the hotel to call me a taxi once I find out how long it takes to get to the airport. I know I flew out of here in 05 but absolutely no memory of it......except my luggage not making it home!!!
After my last disaster with suitcases I brought my favourite. A black duffle bag that is slightly bigger than carry on. I bought it about six years ago one Xmas when I was working at Sears - with huge sales and my employee discount I don't think I paid more than $20 for it and it was regular $125 or so. It is a Roots bag and good quality. It seems to hold so much yet is not bulky - I have been looking for something to take it's place when it finally goes on me...but nothing yet. I may just have to be creative and take less on my overseas trips so I can take this with me.
Beautiful day with blue sky....very enjoyable so off I go to wander and photograph for my last few hours of a wonderful holiday.
