Last week, for our anniversary we took a 3-day trip to Montreal. Since Scott was born in Montreal and my heritage is French Canadian, it made sense. We had such a great time, that we are planning a similar mini-vacation in the fall. I can't say enough about the friendly people and relaxing atmosphere. The chuches were amazing for their art and architecture. The food was great and the weather turned out perfect. All in all, a really wonderful anniversary. I highly recommend it

What a cute couple! Oh wait - that's us

The choir started singing as we walked in. Breathtaking!

We went straight to the top!
Stunning view but I did find it a little scary!

One of my most favorite places in the world to go is Sandbanks Provincial Park but always referred to by us as Picton beach. As much as I could, when my sons were growing up, we would head to the beach for the day. Sun, sand, piggy-back fights in the water and a peaceful ride home as they slept in the back seat all slightly sun-burned but feeling very content. Great memories.
Now that they are grown and in college (and probably not wanting to spend a day at the beach with Mom and Dad), we hope to make new memories there with just the two of us.
Today was a great day. Windy and clear, it was a perfect day to stroll the beach to see what the tide had left from the winter. Surprisingly, the beach was pretty vacant for the first sunny weekend of spring, so we had it mostly to ourselves to stroll and and enjoy a wonderful day!

millions of shells
yet another heart message, hmmm...
Hope your Easter weekend is as good as ours!

Prescott is the owner of a rich history dating back hundreds of years. Noted places of interest are Fort Wellington National Historic Site and the Battle of the Windmill. It is a very picturesque town with lots to see on a sunny spring afternoon. We plan to visit again this summer.
Here are a few pics from our lovely day:
A little more artsy pic.
