Je T'aime Quebec

Well, we're in Quebec now - staying on Ile d'Orleans - a small island in the St. Lawrence river. It was a three day drive from Nova Scotia (in the RV, we only drive 4 or 5 hours a day).  Our first stop was fun - we "boondocked" at the Moncton casino - they let RVs stay overnight in the parking lot for free. There were three other campers staying that night. I played $5 in the one cent slots and won $24 - so I promptly cashed out! High roller -that's me!

I'll have lots of pictures from our time here, for sure, but we'll start with some from old Quebec city, which RVPainter and I call "Our Paris."

Enjoy!

So creative ...

  1. Absolutely beautiful. I was in Paris last summer and had no idea Quebec would be as charming. Enjoy your stay!

  3. Dear Melissa, I've never thought of going/driving to Quebec City to vacation and yet seeing your photographs I now have a desire to do that. One question: Does a visitor have to be able to speak and understand French???? Peace.

    1. Dee - it depends on where you go, I think. Right around Quebec City you won't have a problem because in the tourist areas most people speak English. But out in the countryside it would be different. I undertand some French and can read it enough somewhat. But if you go to Quebec City, or Ile D'orleans where we are, people in the shops will speak English.

  5. We love Quebec too. We are from Ontario, so its not another country to us. It is another world though. We just love that you can see so much within about a ten block radius.
    I used to take school trips there too, every second year in the winter and that was an even different look at the city.
    Thank you for the great pictures!
