Vacation in Quebec — Day 7

Sadly, this is our last day in Quebec, the place where we had so much fun this past week. All of us will definitely look back on this trip fondly.

The last picture we took in Quebec. Tim is reading in the Montreal airport as we wait for our flight to Cincinnati where we board our connection to Orange County. (9/30/05)

The plane is preparing to land in Orange County. This photo shows Tustin and Irvine as we face South. (9/30/05)

The plane that delivered us safely home. Thanks Delta! (9/30/05)

That night, when we got home, we toasted the good people of Quebec with our friends Everett and Joe. To toast, we used a little tiny bottle of Canadian icewine that Doris and Jenn gave us the night prior. To make icewine, grapes are left on the vine well into the winter months. The resulting freezing and thawing of the grapes dehydrates the fruit, and concentrates the sugars, acids, and extracts, thereby intensifying the flavors and adding complexity to the wine made from it. It was dee-licious! (9/30/05)
