Last week took in Quebec City for the first time. We loved it.

If you ever wanted to see a European city in Canada, this is it. The architecture is beautiful, the streets are quaint with lots of flowers and the food is excellent.

There are several areas in and around the walled city to view including the promenade in front of the Frontenac. A shopping district on Rue Saint Jean. The fine restaurants on Grand Allee and the old city below the wall along Rue Saint Peirre.

There are lots of sites to see and it all within walking distance. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and beware that there are hills to climb and descend. The Funicular makes it easy to go down to the old port.

Here are the pics.

Catch up

It's time to do some catching up on my blog.

After a very cold and snowy winter, I finally emerged from the house.

In the way of travels, Warren, MaryAnn, Joe and I went to Prince Edward County for a two day get-a-way. We stayed at a bed and breakfast at Picton and then drove on to Gananoque where we stayed a the Gananoque Inn.

Both places were very beautiful and the boat ride to see the ship wrecks and cottages of the 1000 Islands was fantastic.

Photos are the best way to tell a story, so here they are:
