John & Anne Wiley



Today was very varied. We began with Starbucks next to the hotel, then a walk to breakfast in the old city with many friendly encounters. I noticed that the pix can all reference groupings, so I’ve updated this post to play with that.

This guy was smiling on the roof of a building watching  as we got updated directions from a friendly Quebec man whose English was of course better than our French. Paillard, recommended by Ed and several other sources, had great food.

Bob Fournier provided an enchanting lyrical background of French music as we ate, and then our Bob joined him in song as I danced with Enid to the great enjoyment of the other patrons.

We walked back up the hill and paused to enjoy the colorful buildings.

Then we went on a brief wander back toward the hotel as Bob & Enid paused at a very helpful tourist info office. We managed to get tangled up in the maze of the old fortress, where we saw this classic scene amid the battlements.

We learned later that Bob & Enid had a great relaxed stroll along a scenic waterfront promenade as we were trying to find our way out of the fort nearby. They were probably already back at the hotel enjoying a nap as we paused to see if this groundhog would predict more Winter. He did.

We learned tonight that there may be some unexpected weather coming tomorrow, so it’s likely we’ll be leaving earlier than planned. But we did eventually find a way out of the fort other than trying to follow the groundhog. Back on the familiar street I captured this threesome with a cart.
