This Is Montmorency Falls ,its just spectacular to see you can feel the power of the water under your feet when your near it,it is higher than Niagara Falls by 30 meters ,it cascades down 83 meters,on the right you see a mountain that has steps that you can actually climb down or up depending on where your going.We took the cable car up, no way on earth could anything motivate me to walk up all those steps, and heights don't bother me so up I went to explore the grounds, when you get up there you see a beautiful Manor that use to be someone's mansion turned into a splendid hotel,the flowers are so beautiful the grounds so well manicured, and the falls themselves quite a sight !!
This is St Anne De Beaupre Cathedral,its so beautiful, when we got there , a mass was ongoing so we didn't interupt by investigating the church as we have on other occasions that we visited.
This is the inside of the church from the wayyy back, I am sorry about that but as I said the mass was in progress and they were celebrating 350 years of the cathedral .
This church is special also but not on the grand scale of the Cathedral, this one is called notre Dame De La Victoire it was built in 1687, its in the oldest part of Quebec City in Place Royal, near Petit Champlain .
This is the inside of the church the boat you see on the ceiling was found some 300 years ago under some debris and was hung in the church for safe keeping and is still hanging there today.I lit candles for my Mom and Dad in that special little church.
These cannons were at the very top of the Citadelle near the Govenor General residence we were fortunate enough to have a private tour.Accross the St Laurence you see Levis.
This is part of the old wall , they fortified Quebec City to protect it,all the streets in Quebec City are narrow and steep because of course it was built on a very high hill top.
This cannon ball is there on St Louis Street today! During the battle with Wolfe and Montcalm they were firing the cannons and this one ended up right here and a tree grew around it ! Amaizing !!!
These are leeks, they grow by the millions on what else..........Onion Point!! Its on the Island of Orleans.
This is me on the Island of Orleans we had just visited an Apple Cidery, they make apple ciders and wines etc... and after sampling the delicious elixior (trust me it was good) they won a silver medal for the hard apple cider bottle I am holding( I might save that baby for our Christmas ham what do you think? maybe I should not waste it on meat!), and I bought a bottle of apple ice wine that they won a gold medal for.Yummo I haven't opened them yet...... but I will !!!
This is the famous Funiculaire !! I t was origianlly Louis Joliette's house, but you see the Chateau Frontenac is right behind it and you can of course use the steps to get down to Petit Champlain to shop but remember I don't do stairs (( Not by the hundreds anyway)) so you take the funiculaire to go up to the chateau or down to the boutiques, here is the view from inside the funiculaire.
Yikes right!!! Really its not so bad its steep tho I must say but everywhere you go in Quebec city its high and narrow and steep !! Its unforgettable !!
