The sun absolutely refused to come out and greet me but it was a beautiful walk just the same.
Not a stitch of snow anywhere. It's still pretty cool out there but I was nice and warm with my winter gear and I thoroughly enjoyed my 6 km walk.
Afternoon saw us take a ride to Montmorency Falls. It's a large fall on the Montmorency River only about 12 km from the heart of old Quebec city. Apparently the fall is supposed to be 30m higher than Niagara Falls.
|It's hard to do justice to falls with a still snapshot|
|This is a smaller fall a little ways from the bigger one.|
|The Ile d'Orleans Bridge - a suspension bridge across the St. Laurence River|
Then we headed back to Old Quebec so Edith and Emilia would have the opportunity to do a little reminiscing and sight seeing by car.
|The Parliament Building|
|The famous Funiculaire - a wicked elevator ride down to|
|There's the ride - as viewed through the glass elevator doors.|
|Horse drawn carriage in front of Chateau Frontenac|
|A whole line up of beautifully decorated Christmas Trees|
|And these two little fellows on snow shoes and skis|
