Samuel was very excited to go on a train. He knew many Thomas the Train stories and had a large train track in his room. He and his family were off to
to celebrate Uncle
Craig’s 40th birthday. His Papa got the closest parking spot to the
Ottawa Train Station main entrance. No waiting in a lineup – the Bowman boys
and family were led right to the front of the line. Soon Sam and David were
boarding the VIA train. Quebec
Soon we were on board another VIA train, crossing the fleuve
to follow the south shore. We spotted the Jacques Cartier bridge
that Papa had worked on. St. Laurent
After this we explored the old city and found the hotel Ste-Anne where we would have breakfast as part of our gite.
The boys happily tried out the gite shower caps as part of their bath.
