News about our next virtual visit and some pretty things

I have received some lovely photos for our next virtual visit. I'll post them when I feel a bit more energetic. Posts with loads of photos are time consuming and I can't stay up at the computer for very long stretches. I've been posting single pics from the i-Pad...

Today I'll step it up to three pictures. I find these really pretty and imaginative:

Oops! I fell asleep and didn't post anything...

I had a bad night, with a sore throat, horrible cough and a very blocked nose. I had forgotten what a pain the neck a cold can be! I fell asleep after lunch and missed my self-imposed deadline for posts. Thank you for all the get well wishes. I'm getting better, but a bit impatient with the slow progress. Here is a cheeky photo. Laughing always helps...

Not feeling well...

I finally caught a bad cold after nearly seven years! The last time I "tried" to catch a cold, I managed to nip it in the bud with a couple of doses of echinacea. I wasn't so lucky this time and ended up at the doctor's office this morning. I'm now medicated, but still feel dreadful. 

As you may have guessed, this is a quick "one picture" post, just to keep things going. 


 I can't remember where I saw this picture, but I like it.

GrannyJ, here we go!

What a glorious day to pay GrannyJ a visit!

We'll start at the little beach:




What a very handsome couple!


These photos are of the large park, and waterfront area along the St. Lawrence Seaway.
The cement monuments depict some of the buildings pre-Seaway. The whole downtown core of the village was flooded when the seaway was built about 1954.






The United Church of Canada:


Main Street:


An eccentric guy's haunted house (suspense music... LOL!):


GrannyJ's flourishing new front garden:


Finally, the geese getting ready to head south. They almost look like they are planning to walk... they are actually looking south!


Thank you for your hospitality, GJ. We had a lovely time!

Who's next?

Le Lac de Viam

Our new hobby is taking us to very interesting places. Yesterday we explored the area around the Lac de Viam.

















[GrannyJ had a great idea: we should all photograph the area where we live and share them on the blog (not in the comments; send them to me by email). I have received her photos, but the captions didn't show up. As soon as I have both the captions and the photos together, we're going to visit GrannyJ!]
