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!
