We left Quebec City this afternoon after driving around the town pretty aimlessly for awhile trying to find a good way to get parked so we could see the Citadel up closer. We finally gave up as it was almost impossible for us to figure it out for some reason and we needed to get on the road. Our GPS was acting like she was on crack—kept saying all these weird things that made no sense so SHE was no help! And then I think she took us the most backwards way to Lac-Megantic that there possibly was but oh well! We made it!
I will post a few more pictures of some of the sights along the way. We checked into our B & B called Manoir d’Orsennens and it is lovely. We have a cute little room on the 2nd floor and we have are all set! Got Chris’ clothes all ironed for tomorrow and we walked down by the river to find someplace to eat. Well tonight we ate Mexican! The name of the restaurant did not sound anything like what I thought a Mexican place would sound like but then I don’t speak French! Let me know —it was Citron Verte–which sounds fruity to me!!! Anyway we had a great meal and it was just the right amount and a great price so that made us happy! Now we are pigging out on those little chocolate wafer cookies that taste much better in Canada than in the US!
Tomorrow Chris goes to work and I get to lounge and explore and hopefully it will warm up! It is rather chilly here—about 58 degrees this afternoon when we got in and there is a lovely row of adirondack chairs in the back part of the property overlooking the lake that I would love to just curl up in tomorrow with a good book (or Kindle!) but today I would have needed a blanket and a thermos of coffee to last out there for very long! Hopefully it will be warmer tomorrow!
Connection is a bit flaky so I am probably not going to be able to post pictures tonight. But never fear—I will save them up!!!
