photos: the Place Royale–the oldest plaza in Quebec City (and our dinner stop the first night), a busy shopping street in the lower oldest part of town, coming out of our favorite breakfast stop, night time walk through the gate in the city wall at the Grande Allee.
photos: Soldier from the French speaking troop stands guard at the Citadel, the largest fort in North America, built in the early 1800’s to keep out the Americans! Diorama (I’m a sucker for those things) of the Battle of Saint Poy (1760). From the Museum of Civilization, an exhibit on Quebec Hockey history. Built in the 1700’s, a home of a French merchant, Maison Chevalier. Interior of the home, later in the 1800’s. In the Musee National des Beaux-Arts Larry examines the room arranged in the traditional format of the original art museum.
Our last morning we drove out to a leafy green park, Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge we had spotted on our drive into Quebec City, walking through forested pathways, across grand lawns, past elaborate flower plantings, ending at an 1800’s tea house.
Good-bye Quebec. We loved our stay.
