Jun 24, 2019 - Tour of Quebec City

June 24, Monday Wow!  What an awesome day.  The weather was sunny and warm (probably about 75, but felt warm when in the sun), with a slight breeze.  We took a shuttle (nice air conditioner double decker bus) from the campground to catch the Hop on Hop Off  bus in Quebec City. It stopped a few places along the way to pick up other people. The narrated hop on hop off bus tour was fabulous.  There were 14 stops and it took about 2 hours. The architecture is so beautiful. It was a mix of old and new, with some beautiful old buildings.  We...

Jun 23, 2019 - Edmondson, NB to Quebec City, Quebec

Sunday, June 23 We awoke to a bright, sunny day, about 50 degrees.  We gained back the hour we had lost, so left about 7:30 am Quebec time as we only had to drive a little over 4 hours today. We are spending 2 nights in Quebec City, and touring the city tomorrow.  The views were beautiful. From the top of a hill, we could see the huge, gorgeous Grand Lac Squatec. We filled up in New Brunswick at 1.16 per liter and the next gas in Quebec was 1.25. Winds were moderate today, not nearly as bad as yesterday, and sometimes there was no wind....

Jun 7, 2019 - Hic, hic

On the road again! A rather early start today - especially after the more relaxed ones of the last few days - with all of us on the bus and away by just after 8am. There were quite a few weary, bleary eyed people as our dinner the previous night, while delicious, ran rather late with us not getting back to the hotel until about 10.30. However, in true trooper style, we soldiered on. :) Under ever increasing clear blue skies, we headed back towards Montreal and then finally to our overnight destination- Ottawa, the capital city of Canada....

Jun 6, 2019 - Olde worlde charm

The wonderfulness continued today. Under beautiful blue skies and with deliciously warm weather, we explored Quebec at our leisure. I started off, before breakfast, by walking the whole 5 minutes to the parliament building. I wanted to have a look at it and capture some photos - not only of the imposing building but also the stunning displays of tulips - before the crowds turned up and got in my way. As it was only 7.30 am, I was pretty much alone and able to get my happy snaps. After breakfast, Cheryl and I walked down into the old city....

Jun 5, 2019 - With all these hills, I might just come back as a mountain goat!

After not getting to bed until about 11.30 last night, following the wonderful Cirque du Soleil, I appreciated having another later start to the day. While Cheryl was up early, I stayed in bed and relaxed. We don’t get too many of these types of mornings so I wasn’t going to waste this one. By 9.45, we were all on the bus, following the picturesque St Lawrence River and heading towards Quebec. The sun was again with us and all was right with the world. As we drove along the countryside was lush and green; the St Lawrence River looked...

May 30, 2019 - Quebec City

Our excursion today is by motor coach to Orleans Island and was led by local expert Judith. Orleans Island is situated in the middle of the St Lawrence River, has a population of 7,000 with farming such as grapes, root vegetables, apples and pare trees the main source of income . Arriving at the village of Sainte-Petronille we took a 45 minute walk down one of the streets with Judith telling us about the area. We then boarded the bus again and our next stop was Chocolaterie de.l’ile d’Orleans where we stopped for a snack. I had a vanilla...

WOW, we have a heat wave going on now! 50 degrees this morning when we got up! Met up with our group leader at 9:15am this morning.

Today we took taxi’s to La Citadelle. Lead by an expert we visited The Governor General of Canada Residence which is located inside the Citadelle. After the tour we walked to a historic restaurant Les Anciens Canadiens,...

May 27, 2019 - Montreal to Quebec City

We are up early again today!! 5am! We are taking the hotel shuttle this morning to the Dorval Via Rail station to take the train to Quebec City. We boarded the train at 8:11am and arrived Quebec City at 12:15pm. Kimberly and I shared a Turkey sandwich and chips on the train. It took us 1 1/2 hours to get out of Montréal on the train as we had to back up and change tracks before heading to Quebec. A very slow process. We are staying 4 nights in Quebec City at the Hotel Manoir Victoria. We checked in and got the keys to our room. We went up...

Sep 8, 2018 - Quebec City

September 8, 2018 Another gorgeous crisp (50’s) fall day. We got on the camp shuttle for a 15 minute ride into town where we were dropped off at the Chateau Frontenac which is celebrating its 125th anniversary. As with many other famous Canadian hotels, it was inspired by devotees and beneficiaries of the Canadian Pacific Railroad. We were not being picked up by the shuttle until 6:30 and had a 2 ½ hour walking tour scheduled at 1:30 so we had lots of time to wander. We have been to Quebec City twice before (when freezing cold) but realized...

Sep 7, 2018 - Montreal to Quebec City, Quebec

September 7, 2018 Another lovely, cool day in Montreal with nice weather for driving to Quebec City which is a little more than a 2 hour drive. We drove Hwy 20 which was quite crowded with trucks going both directions and lots of construction. The roads in Quebec are terrible in comparison to those in Ontario. Not much scenery other than sprawling farms and silos. At Levis we turned north to cross the St. Lawrence into greater Quebec City which is sprawling. We are camped at Camping de Jolie north of the city near Charlesbourg where we...
