07-2-18 Quebec City

We decided to take the Hop-on-hop-off bus around the city and learned a good deal about Quebec and it’s history.  Saw a lot of interesting spots and enjoyed the 2 hours or so of the adventure.

Just another fountain.
Lots of the older buildings have copper roofs – this is the train station.
The mural is about 75 feet tall and covers the entire side of the building. Some of the windows are real but most aren’t.
Lots of people wandering around and enjoying the day

We had a nice lunch along the way and walked back to our hotel to get ready for our dinner.

We had lunch in the place with the awning on the right
Just part of the local color of the city
Here we are in the upper city
Neat fountain (see the water in the middle?) where you could fill up your water bottle
This classic luxury hotel was built at the high point of the city by Railroad Baron’s to bring people to the City.
The Funiculaire went from the old upper city to the lower portion of town.
One more fountain along the way
Lots of the older buildings have copper roofs – this is the train station.

We had a lovely time in this City and decided to have a pre-anniversary dinner at Laurie Rapheal – but more about that on the next post
