May 27, 2018 - Quebec City

I was a day ahead of myself. Today’s only Sunday & the French Open doesn’t start until tomorrow. It took me until lunch-time to get all the laundry sorted then I spent most of the afternoon checking maps & working out where I want to go next week. It takes a lot of reading to make sure I don’t miss anything I’d be interested in seeing.

May 26, 2018 - Quebec City

I parked at the Old Farmers Market where there was plenty of parking for the Hop-on Hop-off bus. I stayed on the bus for almost the full circuit, getting off at Place Royale which is the centre of Lower Old Quebec. It’s the part of Quebec I remember most from last time, full of little narrow streets & wonderful old buildings. From there I wandered, mostly uphill & ended up at the Place d’Armes which is the square & boardwalk in front of the famous Chateau Frontenac. I got to use my Parks Canada Annual Pass for the first time with a tour of...

May 25, 2018 - Tadoussac to Quebec City

I’m back on-line again. Yesterday I hadn’t set up the satellite dish because I was only there for one night so I had no TV, no Internet, no nothing – not even anyone who spoke English. I’m getting sick of Quebec & am looking forward to Ontario next week. On the map, today’s route looked like it would follow the river most of the way but it was actually quite hilly. There was also a very strong head-wind so the big Ford V10 had to work pretty hard. Who knows what the fuel mileage will be & at 139.4 cents per litre it’s about the most...

Today we went from Palmyra, ME to Quebec City. We went into the city and had dinner at Cote to Cote in Quebec. Dinner was excellent and during the tour we saw the ship QE2. We happen to have friends on the QE2 and called them. We will be meeting them later in the week.

23/9/2017. Saturday. Quebec This morning we did the Historic, Plains of Abraham and Old Quarter of Quebec tour which was excellent. We learned that in military statues of horses with one foot in the air, the rider is not dead; if two feet are in the air, he died in battle; the Elm is the Province (state) tree emblem of Quebec; Copper roofs last for 100 years - they turn black after less than a year, then green; the Botanical Gardens were designed by a protégée of the man who designed Central Park in New York; the Old City is surrounded by 5...

Sep 22, 2017 - Montreal to Quebec

22/9/2017. Friday. Montreal to Quebec The Wake-up call at 6.30am woke us both - even though we slept in a bed which was half the size of the one the previous night, and Ian complained that I took up most of it, we both slept well. He must like me being close! We checked out of the hotel at 7.30 and went downstairs and checked in our luggage for our train trip to Quebec this afternoon. The station is right under the hotel. It was only a short walk to the Tourist Information Centre, where we were to join our 'included' morning city tour. As...

Sep 17, 2017 - Same Bus, different place.

We are off on another adventure. And our question to everyone as always... What could possibly go wrong? If you've been following our previous trips. you know that adventure follows us and ... well here we are again. This morning we were all set to leave from our summer base outside of Ottawa on Mississippi Lake, and as Michelle was pulling the bus forward we noticed one of the tires was low. We limped into town to try and fill it up at a local gas station/Tim Hortons. Now this in its self should be a simple fix .... HA!. What could go...

Pulled into the Quebec City KOA around 1:30 after fighting overcast and hazy skies and a heck of a cross wind most of the drive. The sun did break out of hiding by mid afternoon, just in time for the eclipse. I was too busy enjoying a nice long shower. Tomorrow, it's off the Ottawa staying at the Welsey Clover Campground and spending a couple days with our middle son before the final leg home.

2017 Maritime Trip

Aug 19, 2017 - Quebec City

August 19, 2018 - Quebec City This is an enchanting place; the closest thing to that French "je ne sais pas" as you can get outside of France. No, it does NOT count as my trip to Paris, but...it certainly did help convince Bob that perhaps, France would not be so bad. First, as most of you probably know, Quebec city is the only walled city north of Mexico. It was founded in the late 1500's which makes it very old and, the Quebecois people have kept the old world charm and architecture intact at least in the old city, "le vieux cite' "....

Did you miss me? No big events yesterday unless you consider doing laundry one. Actually it can be with all the different places that we do our washing and our laundry fairies are not around (you know who you are)! Today we decided to drive into Levis, park and take the ferry across the St.Lawerence and tour Quebec City. The cobblestone streets were not friendly for walking so we are glad we wore our runners. Once off the ferry we took the Governors walkway from Dufferin Terrace to the Plains of Abraham. There were 310 steps going up! Next...
