RJ Visits Notre Dame de Lourdes

Notre Dame de Lourdes, you are one cool, little town.

A group of us hit up the corn maze before heading to Notre Dame, and it was quite the trip. Rather than drive around the community looking for photo opportunities, we went walking. It was a blast.

The architecture in this town, is top-notch. I had never seen the model buildings of churches and stuff until we went to Roseisle a few months ago, and I thought it was super cool. Every time I see them now, it just puts a smile on my face. I always check out the memorial spots for that reason, too. I will say — I was amused to find the info fully in French. Can someone translate it for me? 

We ran into a few locals, and although I didn’t catch their names, they were very nice, and polite. I enjoyed checking out their school and their playground equipment (that basketball hoop is particularly exciting — I can dunk standing up!) and it’s good to know kids have many opportunities to enjoy their recesses.

All in all, I enjoyed my trip. We found this lovely spot to sit down and chat, and we took advantage of it. The nearby Tai-Chi machine for people at the facility, was a nice touch as well. Tougher than it looks, I assure you.

Thank you to the people who chatted me up. Sometimes, I wander around aimlessly by myself, but it was nice to see you. If you ever see a tall, lanky dude wearing a Carolina Hurricanes hat (and sometimes I’ll have my wife and dog with me) don’t be afraid to say hi. You might be the perfect tour guide!

As to where I’m off to next, you’ll just have to wait and see.
