It was a perfect weekend for cottage life - swimming, fishing, ice cream making, frog hunting, kayaking, boating and cooking hot dogs over the fire.

After our usual hearty breakfast, we decided to explore the St-Laurent waterfront before boarding our VIA train after lunch. Loaded with backpacks – Sam was wearing his new train backpack – we set out.
We happily started our big day in
coffee and some snacks in our gite kitchen. Then the Bowman clan hiked to Hotel
Ste-Anne for an amazing BIG breakfast. Quebec City
Papa and Maman had decided to take a trip to the aquarium. Grandpa joined them. Papa decided the best way to get there was a half hour trip on the bus. He checked out the schedule and off they went. The aquarium is beside our train bridge to
ü snowy owl
ü walrus show
ü sharks in big
ü pond walk
ü ice cream!
ü pavilion –jelly fish, sea horses and sting rays – Sam touched a sting ray!
Back together on the bus…
There was still time to join the other Bowmans (they had been exploring historical sites) for a hike around town, a birthday dinner together at Hotel Ste-Anne (had a children’s menu), a walk past some artisan stalls and finally, a birthday cake to celebrate with Uncle Craig.
