Spent the day on the road with cousins Dan and Rose, driving into Quebec and stopping at a chateau for a wonderful buffet, a lunch with choices Marilyn and I have never seen before. Photo of the dining room tomorrow.
Then we drove to Ottowa, the capital of Canada, to take in their tribute to their 150th year as an independent country; again, photos tomorrow when we leave Ontario, Canada, enter New York state, and aim for Burlington, VT for a couple nights.
Ate evening mean at a place called Brigadoon, great atmosphere and first class service.
At the park in the center of Ottowa were flower sculptures, huge ones, 15 feet tall in some cases. May make an Elkfarm email out of that, email me for details. Otherwise photos to come tomorrow.
For lunch, it was so different and unique to listen to French speakers, an entire table of formal looking people speaking French. You know, French, like they speak in Frenchland or Spain or somewhere like that. Still learning, will gather information for the next post. Dining area below, buffet toward the back.
Enjoy the photo of the jumbo hot dog on a diner above at the foot of the Mackinac Bridge. Much classier than that weinermobile the Oscar Meyer company sends around the country.
