Where I stayed
Of course our first stop was the VC, which told us about the Paillard Bakery. If the French can do anything right, it's bake! It was so good we ate breakfast and lunch there (which repeats are a big no-no for us), gobbling up the baked goods! We had an English tour of their Parliament Building and then did a self guided walking tour withing the old fortified walls. The park area of the Citadel sprawled then we were led down a trail called the Promenade des Gouverners towards Chateau Frontenac
While we were coming across the US/Canada border, our RV was thoroughly searched and the guy I was walking around with mentioned that because the Cirque de Soleil is from Canada, they put on a free show in Quebec. So our first night we made sure to see the Chemins Invisibles production and it was fantastic! The set was under an overpass, outdoors and freeeeee!
The following day we went to a waterfall called Chute Montmorency. We were able to walk across it! I was a bit freaked out but who'd pass that up?! We drove to the island ile d'Orleans, which we were told is the wine and farm country of Quebec. Cute drive but we didn't stop as we didn't stop. We were happy to just drive around. Then we had the task of finding a lavoir (coin laundry). Finally we found one but we had to park a ways away and carry all our belongings (just like university days)! Later that night we drove back into old Quebec for a 3-D story of Canada's history, projected on grain mills, called Image Mill-Le Moulin a Images. Does it get any better?
