Fish Lake - home to Grandma

I can't get enough of the lake that my grandma lives on.... such a beautiful sanctuary away from the craziness of the city and my job. And of course, the love of a good grandma always helps. I took these pictures last week when I was working up north and staying with my grandma. Springtime up north!

Quebec City

Another week, another road trip for work. My new job has had me all over Canada and the US for the last 2 months with the most recent stop being old Quebec City, a place steeped in history as it is the birthplace of Canada. Enjoy the pics!

There were a couple of buildings that had giant murals painted on them.... it was really quite beautiful.

I loved all the little shops that lined the old city streets...

Ah yes, Texas. If you want to take the American extreme opposite to Canada, than this is the state. Where we Canadians believe in tight gun control, this state believes that everyone has the right to bear arms and has the death penalty still well in swing.

This set the stage for an interesting trip to Texas for me this week when I went down to San Antonio for a national sales meeting. I actually ended up having a pretty good time and thoroughly enjoyed San Antonio's famous River Walk. Here are a few pics from my trip (as always, click the thumnail for a larger view)....

This is me on the roof of the hotel our company was staying in, The St Anthony Wyndham Hotel.

View from the rooftop.

I loved the Mexican style artwork that could be found all over San Antonio.

This is the San Antonio River where you can find the famous RiverWalk.

I simply LOVED the River Walk with it's double layer of shops and restaurants along the river.

The view as I walked along the river was simply breathtaking...

... and as you can see I was a good little tourist and took lots of pictures. :-)

How can ya NOT love all the restaurants lining the river??

With any good river you also have bridges. There were several along the River Walk to allow you to cross over at any time to check out a cute little shop or delicious smelling restaurant on the other side.

The bridges also double as nice spots to cool off in the shade.

Here is where a co-worker and I decided to sit and enjoy the view a little, sipping drinks and people watching for an hour or so.

And don't I look happy to be there! haha..

This was taken the last night I was in San Antonio. My company held their own version of Olympic games and I won in the... er...tricycle event. A mini tricycle. (don't ask)

And I just had to take a picture of the breakfast I ate in the airport before boarding my plane to go home. Only in Texas will you get nachos and cheese for breakfast! hahahahaha..

I was sent to Florida on business last week.. here are a few of the pics I snapped between work and sleep....

Here's the plane I took from Tampa to Philadelphia. This was the GOOD flight, unlike the connecting flight which was BAD. Very very bad.
And there's my luggage heading into the plane (on the left). It was funny watching the baggage handler toss my bag around... I became strangely protective as if I was watching over a child of mine. "Be careful with that! CAREFUL!!!" Thankfully he couldn't hear me through the glass.
