La Journee de la famille

Today was family day with Didier's Sister (Sylvie), Brother-in-law (Olivier) and Nephew (Raphael)

It all started with a Metro ride out to the Olympic Park.

First Stop was the BioDome. It's always a great time there and even though I've been there, about 8 times since it opened There's always something to see.



And you can just watch the penguins for hours. I took some video, I just have to figure out how to post it here.



After the tour and a quick bite to eat we walked up to the Insectarium... Thank god Raphael was not too impressed. I hate bugs and I hate that place! YUCK!

We then took a nice leisurely promenade through the Botanical gardens...
The Japanese Gardens..





Zen, Bonsai etc.




I saw some sort Hawk?... Took about 10 pics here's one...




Then to the Indigenous (Indian) Gardens. And then the Alpine Gardens...





...and then just as the heavens broke...





The Chinese Gardens...





We took a little rest in the Grand Pavilion...




Family group shot at the Main Gate...





... and then continued on to the Greenhouses.






And after 4 hours of walking we needed an ICE CREAM!

Back home we had a barbeque on the Roof top deck and then finished the evening off with The closing of the Fireworks competition.

A great day was had by all and soon we'll do it again... in 2 weeks? :-)
