Post-Christmas, pre-New Years, we went north to Canada, land of fun accents, cold weather and poutine!
When we got back, I used our photos from the trip to play around with different effects on picnik.com:
The snowy view at the start of our walk on La Promenade des Gouverneurs in Quebec City.
Notre Dame Basilica near the Old Port district of Montreal.

Enjoying the snow and Christmas decorations in Montreal before going to a jazz club.
Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City, aka the Fairmont Hotel, aka not our hotel.
Outside St. John's gate to Old Quebec City.

One of many poutine stops -- trying the Poutine Elvis (ground beef, green peppers and mushrooms) and Poutine Obelix (smoked meat) at La Banquise in Montreal.
Stopped in front of the Statue of Athena in Mount-Royal Park, Montreal, to watch locals sledding.
