After seven years, I’m back. Arrived yesterday, late afternoon, after an excruciatingly hot, six-hour-trip. The a/c wasn’t working in the car, and when we crossed the bridge into Quebec City, the thermometer showed 34ºC [93ºF]. I don’t dare to think about how hot it was in the car. Getting into this little air conditioned motel felt like heaven. I have my camera with me of course … that’s one of the main reasons for this trip, but today only iPhone photos have been taken.
I went to the shopping malls [they are three adjacent] this morning. Had planned to spend the whole day there, but wandering around and all the visual impressions get more tiring than one would imagine!
Visited an Apple store for the first time in my life! Didn’t do anything, just looked around. I’d been thinking, loosely, about bringing my old Mac there, but I had to book an appointment and I didn’t know exactly when I’d be there … secondly, I’m taking a bus back, and didn’t want to lug it around together with everything else. Will have to transfer twice, during that bus ride. In any event, I was surprised to see how many people there were that early in the morning!
My husband’s son picked me up at the mall when I was finished, and we went out to Lac-Beauport, where we used to live … that’s 20 kilometres outside of Quebec City. We drove around the lake, looked at the old homestead of course, and I also went to the grocery store. So many memories …
