Another road trip! 🍁

July was our family vacation to Montreal, Canada. Plane tickets were a little pricey, so we decided to drive. It was actually a nice ride, I'd head that way again!

Passing NY City

Such a beautiful drive.

I thought this was the perfect thing to stitch in the car. This is the one I picked up last year when we went to Toronto. I think I'm going to make it a biscornu, but change up some of the designs as to what we've seen in Niagara Falls, Toronto, and now Montreal.

We arrived!


Fun in Old Montreal

Jazz Festival while we were there.

This is what we did on July 4th, seemed appropriate. Not quite sure what's up with Nathan's expression!

The Biosphere

Some Montreal Street Art, it was everywhere.

We stayed near the Mount Royal Cross, so we hiked up there one afternoon after seeing it from afar.

DH and the Gmen went to a football game at McGill University one evening...

while Nathan and I hit the streets in search of ice cream. We found Le Bleuboy and enjoyed cooling down, 50's style!

A bakery we saw along our walk, just a little scary!

And then before we knew it, it was time to head home.

Overall a nice trip in spite of the heat wave! But next time we'll read the fine print and ask questions about where we're staying... no ac! Oh my, I think it was hotter here than at home. We had a fan for each of us to use, but it was still flippin' hot! We did a lot of walking, but survived. 
I'm not sure when, but I'm planning on our next Canadian adventure to be in Nova Scotia.

Not much stitching, but I did manage another block.

Ah, Tim Horton's, love it!
