Yesterday was a very long, draining, but in the end a happy day. There were unexpected trips half-way across the city, trying to find our way home again on the bus, pharmacists open late (and saving me!), watermelon for supper, and fireworks. Oh yes, today is a holiday here - Fete nationale or St-Jean-Bapatiste Day - so our town had fireworks last night, waking me up from much needed sleep. I didn't bother watching them, being more amused at my cat Mila cowering with fluffed out tail at each boom.
We leave for BC this evening, and we haven't even started packing. I should get on that, but so many other things need to be done as well, mostly as a result of losing most of yesterday afternoon and evening to unexpected errands. The local church bells are ringing for noon, so I should go eat some lunch. I hope you are all having a lovely summer so far. I will try to get lots of photos of our trip, to share with you when we get home.
