We left on September 15 and headed for Ottawa, the capital city of Canada.
Quebec City is a wonderful old city, founded in 1608. We took a walking tour and learned so much about its history. The photo at left shows one of the oldest homes (circa 1675) still in use in the city. It is now a restaurant called Aux Anciens Canadiens.
After Quebec City we began to make our way down the eastern coast of the U. S.
I won't bore you with photos of every place we visited, but I'll try to give you an assortment.
We ate lobster and other seafood every day, since we don't get that much of it in Minnesota.
This is a photo of the Salem Witch Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. We learned in more detail about the witch trials that took place there in 1692-93. What a sad catastrophe that was! So many innocent lives lost, and all because of some sort of witchcraft hysteria.
We headed up into northern New Hampshire and were lucky enough to catch some of the fantastic fall color.
The pictures I am sharing with you here just don't do it justice.
It was amazing to come around a bend in the road and see an entire hillside covered with glorious red, orange and yellow trees. Truly breathtaking, even on a cloudy day.
I will end this post with a few pictures of American poet Robert Frost's home near Franconia, New Hampshire.
This is my husband and I looking toward the house with a portion of that beautiful view in the background.
I will be back soon with a few more photos of our trip (as long as you're not too bored with them).
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
