But it's all over now, and before I plunge into the long list of follow-ups, wrap-ups, and action points, I'm having some downtime. At the moment, I'm staying in a nineteenth-century (I think) farmhouse on Ile d'Orleans, just outside Quebec City, with three of my work friends, decompressing and celebrating J's retirement at the end of the month. Tomorrow DP and Miss B will arrive to collect me, and we will begin a three-week jaunt to visit family and friends in Montreal, Boston, Kansas City, and Dallas.
So that's the news from here. I'll leave with a few photo highlights of the last 10 days - mostly food, of course:
Yuzu, a Quebec City chain. We liked this so much that we went back for seconds. It sounds like an abomination, but it's totally delicious. Another image contributed by the talented MJ.
best bakery on the island for morning coffee and pastries.
She did not mislead us. This danois au framboise may be the best thing I've ever eaten in a bakery.
That's all the news for now. More shenanigans to follow shortly.
