August 2017 – We Moved East to Quebec City

Not as large as Montreal, but still impressive. It is a very hilly city and reminded us of San Francisco with all the activity centered around the Old Town

 

Samvel De Champlain

Samuel de Champlain, “The Father of New France”, was a French navigator, cartographer, draftsman, soldier, explorer, geographer, ethnologist, diplomat, and chronicler. He founded New France and Quebec City on July 3, 1608. The statue stands in front of the impressive Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac Hotel.

There is a gondola from the hotel down to the lower streets

 

They commissioned art students to paint murals on bridge abutments

 

One section of Old Quebec there were people dressed in period garb

One of the various 2 or more singers dotted around this section of Old Quebec

One street had lamp shades over all the street lights

Restaurant row

A park and statue dedicated to Joan Of Arc

 

Our spot a little tight. Not a very good view, but we were out most of the time. Only 30 amp which we tripped a couple of times.

One plus, was there was a bus that stopped at our campground and shuttled us into town.

A beautiful city with loads of French charm
