Photographs: Vacationing in Quebec!
Oh my goodness, it is the middle of December already I am not sure where the time has gone! (It was my intention to get through all of our vacation photos weeks ago.) This year went by so incredibly quickly and the last quarter of this year has been especially busy! We went to Quebec in August and September this year, and I have finally had time to finish culling and editing the images from our vacation, our first vacation with our dear, Victory! You can view the snapshot of our vacation here, which I posted upon our return from Quebec!
We started our vacation in Manchester, Vermont. We took Victory to the Orvis Flagship Store where we took Biscuit last spring where he was the Orvis Cover Dog Winner and Centerfold and represented the Orvis Petfinder Commitment supporting and promoting dog rescue! Victory had fun trying out (picking out) the Orvis dog beds and trying on her new Orvis coat!
We stopped briefly at Lake Champlain on our way to Quebec and it was beautiful.
We made it to our lake house that we rented for several weeks in Quebec! It was located on the Lake of Two Mountains and the views were beautiful and we witnessed many lovely sunsets each night! Victory loved the beach and boating!
We walked to the beach and we had a lot of fun with Victory! She loved the beach and we captured her putting her paws in the water for the first time! She actually went into the water and she loved walking on the beach!
We went into Montreal a few times and pushed Victory around in her Hound About – which turned out to be a lifesaver as the city is very crowded and it would have been too stressful for her to walk on the sidewalks with so many people! She rode around in class! Doug and I loved going to the Orange Julep! This has the world’s best orange juice! We also visited McGill University and walked all around a good portion of the city! We went shopping in Montreal and Victory got some new gear!
One of my favorite parts of the trip was taking the route de vines! I am not a big wine person, but the views and the vineyards were really beautiful. Doug figured out the routes and drove us everywhere! Victory loved the wineries and dogs were welcome and, of course, everyone called her a “plus beau chien!” (most beautiful dog!) Of course, we agree! Victory loved the vineyards so much that she often did not want to leave!
Most of all, we enjoyed spending time together; getting away and having a break; having a change of scenery; and having days where we had no plans and were able to take each day as it came! Everyone was so nice in Quebec and the pace of everything was nice and slow! Enjoy some of our images from our vacation below!
