Quebec family visit

After the ABS/IEF conference in Toronto, I spent two weeks in St. Romuald, Lévis, Quebec, with my son Alex, daugher-in-law Mahalia Gagnon, and grandchildren Benjamin, Alia, and recently arrived Nalah, as well as step-grandson Jérémie. It was good to have time with all the family. We went for four days to the Quebec Baha'i Summer School (see separate page).

There is a natural area, forest and river a short walk from Alex's house, so I walked down with the kids to spend some time on the beach, where we were joined by Rachel Luce and her friend José.

One evening we bought ice cream cones at a famous shop in Lévis and ate them in a park overlooking the river and the city of Quebec.

Another day we did the same thing in the afternoon to enjoy the beautiful view of Quebec city across the river.

The last day we visited the Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge in Québec, around what used to be the lieutenant governor's residence, with views of the river from the heights of Québec.
