I had such a great day today!!
I went to my College Reunion to meet up with those I graduated with,
thirty years ago...
You might think this was a long time ago,
and you'd be right,
but I was pleasantly surprised to see everyone looking good;
not in a vain way but in a wholesome way.
I didn't get to see absolutely each and everyone one
but I was amazed at the journey of those I spoke to.
Some remained in the field,
some didn't (like me...)
and we swapped stories about what got us to the point we are at the moment.
It was fun!!
Another funny thing:
Some didn't recognized me.
I wonder why...
We met today at
a museum about the old mill and the village of Sault-au-Recollet,
situated in what is now known as
PARC de l'ILE de la VISITATION,
a splendid location
and our group lunched on the terrace of their bistro.
I believe everyone had a good time and was glad to reconnect with old friends.
Some even came from afar to be there!!
I didn't bother taking pictures [for a change] as I figured
I'd soon find plenty on Facebook,
but I did take just a few of our immediate surroundings.
I'll visit the museum a next time and tour the island in its entirety
as I went only halfway today,
because it started to rain...
but we were spared that during the lunch,
I have no idea what this bird is,
and I wasn't the only one,
but it seemed to be brooding under these branches by the water.
Maybe we were too noisy
and it was only hoping we'd leave soon.
Which we did eventually!!
I'm glad I went as I was reminded what a fine/fun bunch of people we were,
and reconnecting with them was easy,
as if we'd never left...
