Spring is finally here!

After a productive week in Washington D.C., we are back in our beloved Quebec City.

When we left, on May 17, trees had just begun to leaf out and only a few early flowers could be seen here and there.  This weekend, however, the sun is shining and the temperature is truly pleasant.  Yesterday, my husband, Dewayne Matthews, and I strolled  the streets of Old Quebec and visited a few museums, the Parc de la Artillerie and the Musée de la civilisation. We were out for about eight hours and enjoyed every minute. Hundreds of people were out enjoying the beautiful weather. 

Hundreds of tulips around Parliament

 Here are some pictures that I took with my mobile phone. I will take my real camera next time, although my iPhone does a decent job.

Winters are long and cold in Quebec, there is no denying it, but there is so much to do and see.  And, as I always say, embracing winter is key.  Winters are beautiful and can be enjoyable. 

Parliament and the famous hotel Le Concorde in the distance. 
The revolving restaurant atop Le Concorde offers a
breathtaking view of the city and the majestic St. Lawrence River.
