First off, to answer some of your questions...
Quebec City is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Montreal. So worth it!!
And yes, Becky, that 4th photo is a trompe l'oeil!! :)
And here are some more photos from our trip to Quebec City...
This is one of my favorite places to go to when we go to Quebec. It's an old grocery store (1871!!) where they sell spices, special chocolates, bread, imported stuff - all kinds of good stuff!! I just love to walk around this old shop!!
Just thought this building was interesting - don't know if they are redoing it or what!
Petit Champlain - lots of stairs!!
I thought this was so fun!!! Bikes on buildings!! Never seen that before!
Chateau Frontenac at night - beautiful site!!
