Hotel Frontenac at night


Well if you believe the first two photos...it's time you went on a holiday!!!

Our hostel was very near to this shiny car and the grand "Hotel Deaville" (Andrea's maiden name). Despite the confusing one way road system within the Old city walls and the sometimes un-pronouceable French street names, we found our way and parked the car for a few days. The Old Quebec City was beautiful - very quaint and historic. We visited the famous Hotel Frontenac and the Citadelle - still in working order. We dandered along the narrow cobblestone streets in and out of the little shops full of tourists and through rows of artists with their work hanging out on the street stands. We had some good craic with 3 other travellers we met from Australia and the UK. The 3-D film we watched explained the history of Quebec in the early years and the importance of Quebec city being built on a key spot along the St Lawrence Seaway - both in terms of defense and importing/exporting supplies. Water was the lifeblood of the a developing nation.
