Photographs: Vacationing in Quebec City
We went to Quebec City in September this year, and I have finally had time to finish culling and editing the images from our vacation, our second vacation with our dear, Victory! You can view the snapshot of our vacation here, which I posted upon our return from Quebec City! (You can also view our vacation last year to Montreal, Quebec here.)
We started our vacation In Manchester, Vermont. We took Victory to Mount Equinox, and the views were just beautiful and it was so peaceful. We also previously took Biscuit to Mount Equinox, and we thought a lot about our dear Biscuit. We still miss him very much. We also took Victory to the Orvis Flagship Store where Victory had fun picking out and trying out the Orvis dog beds along with trying on her new Orvis coat! We also went to the Vermont Country Store, where I got some goodies and Victory walked around with Doug! We also visited Robert Frost’s home.
We stopped in Montreal on our way to Quebec City, and where we went to the Orange Julep! The Orange Julep has the world’s best orange juice ever!
We made it to our lake house that we rented for several weeks on the Saint Lawrence River, just outside of Quebec City. The views were beautiful and we witnessed many lovely sunsets each night! Victory loved being by the water! We also enjoyed many long walks together each day. And, we ate way too much ice cream, which was delicious — the best ever!
We also visited the vineyards located on an island not too far from where we stayed. It was very pretty with a real French-country feel. The iced cider and fire cider are very popular, as there were many apple orchards located on the island!
We went to Quebec City multiple times. On our first visit to Quebec City, we even met a native sheltie named Choco! We ate outside with Victory in Quebec City and the food was absolutely delicious! We also walked all over the city, saw the main sites, and did some shopping.
Most of all, we are grateful for our time away together. We enjoyed spending time together; getting away; 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 nice in Quebec City and the pace of everything was much slower than we are accustomed to, which is refreshing! Enjoy a few images from our vacation, shown below!
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend! We are looking forward to this weekend! The weather is supposed to be beautiful and we are celebrating our seventh wedding anniversary; and we are also celebrating Victory’s birthday! We cannot believe that our fur girl has been with us for two years on Monday already! The time is flying by and we are trying to savor it! (You can view Victory’s birthday from last year here!)
