Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

 

A surprise awaits you in Toronto

 

You can learn all about this historic Toronto landmark, The Gooderham Building located at 49 Wellington Street East, here at Canada’s Historic Places. The beautiful trompe l’oeil mural is by the renowned Canadian artist Derek Michael Besant.

Yesterday’s photo is a reminder to buckle up in anticipation and drive safely over the holidays, particularly if your passenger is a moose who has had one too many at the office party…

…which reminded me of one of Woody Allen’s classic stories from the sixties:

Happy Holidays

Falling for the Falls in the Fall

Montmorency Falls, Quebec

Back home in Vancouver after our memorable visit to Québec, a photo for this week’s Photo Challenge: H2O to add to my 1000th post yesterday with this view approaching the Montmorency Falls in the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency on what was simply a perfect Fall day.

Fall glorious Fall on the Ile d’Orleans

After the breathtaking Fall colours in Québec City yesterday our visit to the Ile d’Orlean today was just as spectacular with our first stop at the Montmorency Falls in the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, before crossing the bridge to the Island where we picked apples, enjoyed the best strawberries and savoured every glorious colour-filled moment.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my 1000th post than with these images from our memorable visit today to this beautiful Ile d’Orleans here in the Province of Québec.

Home to Vancouver and the west coast tomorrow.

Fall glorious Fall in Québec City

We couldn’t ask for a more perfect Fall afternoon here in one of Canada’s most beautiful cities, Québec City, where we have arrived for a short three day visit. I have no doubt the Ile d’Orléans where we will be spending the day tomorrow will be just as spectacular.
