Friday, June 26th, Quebec


After breakfast at the hotel, we took the shuttle back to the Airport, where our car rental company picked us up and took us to their office to get our car.  On the road after photographing all the scratches, we headed north to the scenic drive along the St. Lawrence Seaway.  Stopping at a small diner in Maskinonge, Pat left her purse under the table.  It was about an hour and a half later when we discovered it missing, and our race back to the diner was very white-knuckled.  Passports, her wallet, and plenty of less crucial but important stuff inside, we were hugely relieved retrieving it.  Forgoing the rest of the coast, we made a beeline for our hotel in Quebec.

Tomorrow, we head into the Old Town area of Quebec.  It is full of my family history, and I made a photo of the Google Map containing our stops.  The hotel shuttle will drop us off at the Hotel Frontenac, and we'll try walking the places noted.  The Metro can get us back to the Hotel later in the afternoon, and I'm really looking forward to this part of the trip.

We'll be here in Quebec until Monday, and have planned day trips up the north-eastern side of the St. Lawrence, and out to the Gaspe Peninsula.  Should be lots of photos in the next post.
