For the next few days.
Quebec City is perhaps best known for the walls surrounding the old city along the banks of the St. Lawrence River.
The first day we're in Quebec City (the province or state it is in is also called Quebec, like New York City in New York State) we always walk past the provincial government buildings and walk through the old walls.
We take the funicular.
Riding down to the lower section.
One thing we love about Quebec City is its playgrounds. Big climbing structures that let our kids go high into the sky.
Post-ice cream stroll.
While riding back up on the funicular (remember those stairs) one of our guys gave a detailed explanation of how it works (with much 7-year-old creativity and a smattering of reality). A fellow rider nudged me and said "He's going to be an engineer."
And our daughter is going to be a huckster. She was enthralled with every street performer in the city.
And there were a lot of them.
Drawn to the music.
Tomorrow: we stumbled upon the Mayor's funeral.
Be sure to check Jenn's and my photo site all this week. Not only does Jenn have some great images but we have a guest on Wednesday. Oh, and I picked my favorite Quebec photos to go there.
