Quebec City Part 1

Last few days of our vacation we spent in Quebec City, about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Montreal. It's a beautiful historic city which is celebrating its 400th anniversary! We go there a few times a year because we love exploring and walking the street of this fun city!








Petit Champlain - love going there - even though it is always so crowded!!



Chateau Frontenac (Frontenac Castle) - built around 1893 - it is now a hotel (very expensive one!!)

A view from the "basement" of the Castle.




One of the many beautiful buildings in the city. I just loved this because of the girl leaning on the wall!!



An old grocery store

I love all your beautiful cityscapes. That fourth one down--is that was is known as a trompe l'oleil? (I'm sure I butchered that spelling too.)

I just had the best time ever when I was in Quebec City. I love all of the great colors and the fisheye shot with the sun flair is so amazing! You have to start a book with all of your travels for sure.
