Quebec - Day 2: Quebec City to Montmagny (by car)

Previous Up Next

I spent the morning wandering around Q.C. some more, going around the citadel and the Plains of Abraham (a big park along the St. Lawrence) before wandering back to the hotel to meet Dad. He arrived in time for a lunch of somewhat underwhelming crepes, and then we did a bit more sightseeing and shopping for supplies before meeting Adam, our self-guided-tour-guide for the week. Adam drove us and the bikes to Montmagny, where we got our bikes and maps, in time for a very nice dinner at our B&B.

Looking up along the St. Lawrence from Q.C. If you zoom in, you can see the posts of that suspension bridge near Montmorency Falls

from the Plains of Abraham, i took this path back to the boardwalk

Q.C. is a very vertical city

Dad, now actually appearing on this trip

after lunch, we took the funicular down to the lower city (this is a funicular)

this claims to be an old building and has small-paned windows, so i took a picture of it

one more view from the north side of the river before we leave Q.C.

we met Adam at my hotel, and he drove us and the bikes across the river and up the southern shore in this comically huge van
