The Weekend Edition #3

View of the Promenade near the Château Frontenac.
This weekend I found myself in Quebec City visiting my grandmother. I love being able to spend time with her in the home my father and two uncles grew up in. We drove down on Friday evening and as it is customary, we spent Saturday walking around the old city. The old city is the oldest in North America and filled with historic buildings and streets reminiscent of Europe. The evening was spent sitting on the promenade of the Château Frontenac. Gelato and people watching were on the menu for the night. If you haven't been to Quebec City before, and live within driving distance, I really recommend that you go because it is so beautiful. Having been to Europe a few times, it really is the closest thing to the Old Continent. I woke up early Sunday morning to watch the Wimbledon Men's Championship and chatted with my grandmother until we left in the early afternoon. It was a delightful weekend spent with one of the most amazing woman I know.
