We're Back!


Her Royal Highness the cat and I had a GREAT time on the moon. Did you know that Hershey's has a store there? Strange but true. We brought back a BIG chocolate bar for My Rare One. (Plus another special chocolate treat that will be featured in a giveaway post on Monday!)


But despite the chocolate bar, My Rare One's nose was still out of joint because she didn't get to go on the moon trip with us. So she and I went on our OWN holiday after HRH and I returned.

In Hamilton, Ontario, we attended the Bicentennial Re-enactment of the Battle of Stoney Creek, one of several battles during the War of 1812 where British troops and Canadian locals prevented an attempted American invasion.


We also enjoyed meeting a couple of blogger friends for coffee and waffles at the Cannon Coffee Company, a funky Hamilton artisan coffee shop. Stay tuned for a special post to learn WHO we met!


And we also spent a few days in Quebec City to enjoy an even OLDER period of Canadian history when France was the colonial power before Britain took over in 1759.


I'll be posting more about these adventures in due course!

I'm so glad you are back, what a trip, did you drive through Sault Ste.Marie Ontario?

DEZMOND said...

hope HRH didn't leave a royal poop over at Moon :)

Next time we invade, we will be successful. And then you will have guns, and a narrow definition of marriage, and you will have to pay for your health care out of pocket.

Hi Laurie -- Alas no, we didn't go through Sault Ste Marie. We flew to Toronto and then drove to Hamilton in a rental car. Hopefully some day we'll make it to the Sault though and I'll look you up!

in the modern day it's hard to believe Canada and America were once bitter foes.

Hi Debra! I am glad you were gone for a while, so that I had time to read all your posts I have missed over the last couple of months!
Quebec, my stomping grounds!! Can't wait to read your stories about the trip! HRH is probably not pleased that you left her behind, even after that amazing trip to the Moon.

Guillaume said...

Welcome back on the blogosphere! I am glad you enjoyed your trip to Quebec City.

mistress maddie said...

Quebec City , I loved it when I was there! Been years. I so need another Canadian tour again! I would spend all summer up there when I was young. But Welcome back Debs, you were missed honey. I love Hershey's! My mother only lives about 20 minutes from Hershey PA. It's a beautiful town, where the street lights look like Hershey Kisses, the town smells of Chocolate, and the tan bark for gardens contains cocoa!!!! Plus you can tour the factory. You would love it! It's like Willy Wonka sort of.......

Makropoulos said...

Nice to see you Debra! Pisi has wanted to go to the moon for a few years now, so we'll be waiting for your follow up!

They Come Along said...

Willow said...

I didn't know the moon had been moved to Canada ...did it have anything to do with global warming. Hee hee

laughingwolf said...

wb ladies, glad you survived that ordeal - our own space director, hadfield, has called it quits, so you got back in under the wire ;)

as for hamilton; you were some 40 miles from me... and didn't visit? :(

Francie M said...

Can't wait to find out who you met in Hamilton, but you know Debra, it sounds like a fabulous holiday. I can't wait to see more pictures of the Battle and of Quebec! I was going to take a break but I'll have to wait a while longer I guess. :)
