Vacation: Quebec City

Friday, August 19, 2011

Just returned from our yearly vacation. This time to Quebec City. It is a wonderful busy city with many, many, many people enjoying the history and the old world feel. I highly recommend going there. We did all of the touristy things in Old Town and New Town except take a horse and carriage tour. We walked, and walked, and walked and ate and ate and ate! Every meal was delicious.
We stayed at Auberge Place d Armes on the only pedstrian street in the city, but right in the middle of everything. Our hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was comfortable...yes, including the bed.

Chateau Frontenac ( of course, no snow) Next to the park and our hotel.

Road the funicular down to Lower Town and then back up. Quite the deal. Went to two museum, so I'm cultured out. Loved the Inuit Art.
Really, I have no complains except that I've brought home some sort of allergy cough and I'm exhausted. Just happy to be back in the little house in the little country near the little town.


  1. Welcome back B - hope you had lots of fun - and you have to do all the walking to take care of all the eating! J

  2. This looks like a wonderful vacation. Everything looks leafy and green like summer ought to, instead of dry and tan like it does here in CA right now. Glad you had a good time!
