How to blow off a tour!

June 16, 2012

Got signed in as the +1 on mom’s anesthetic convention for a walking tour of Quebec City. Meeting at the Convention Centre 15 minutes prior to departure. Met several bored Dr’s wives waiting for the tour guide, all of them wanted to go shopping! The tour guide showed up…and we set off. One block walking to the parliament buildings and the dear old fossil stood for 20 minutes explaining the government business from under his Tilly hat. What have I got myself into?

I tried to be patient, really I did! What’s a girl to do?
I know, let’s have a look at the fountain…hmm interesting.

Look…a honey bee on the salvia, needed to follow her a little…documenting bees…very important these days.

Oh, the gateway to the old city, surely the old fossil and the shopping wives would make their way here…I’m just a bit ahead…

Ok, I’m bad, totally blew off the tour…

but look at the pretty hanging basket.

Ah, there, I needed to catch up with my postcards at the Château.

Peace at last…just me and the river.

Turned out to be a lovely Saturday morning after all. Hope the tour is having a nice time.
