The Day My Boat Came In

Well, it was nearly my boat … I do have Scandinavian heritage in there, somewhere, especially on my mother’s side of the family. What we do get is a lot of unusual ships visiting Québec City. This time around it was this replica Viking ship, which sailed across the Atlantic to prove that Vikings and their ships were quite capable of doing the journey. But then, we already know they made it here before Columbus.

Pigeon Soup …

What? Oh, okay, so Campbells isn’t making a pigeon soup. But, you know, the pigeons here, in Quebec City, sure love a good can of tomato soup when they see one … despite all that salt, look how BIG they grow here!

Mini Australia Visits …

Well, yes, it could be a mini slice of Australia complete with indigenous animals come to visit … or, equally, it could be an exhibit being put together for the next Mars probe to make Martians feel less intimidated by us visiting them. Certainly, the ducks aren’t intimidated by it’s sudden appearance. I suspect, however, some artists (kids?) had fun creating this with a ton of papier-mache and a lot of time on their hands. Either way, it’s an island of wonder left floating in the marina causing heads to turn!
