My brother, Tom, is visiting me this week from Calgary. This is his first time in Quebec, so I thought he should see Quebec City -- it's a bit of a drive, but it's such a great place, especially for western-Canadians like us who are impressed by a hundred-year-old building. (Quebec City will celebrate four hundred years next year.) Happily, Tom agreed that it was worth the three-hour drive to get there.
It was quite a bit busier than when Bill and I were there in May, and unfortunately, large parts of the Chateau Frontenac and some other buildings are hidden behind scaffolding at the moment. Still, a good afternoon. I may have had two different ice cream cones just a few short hours apart. I was startled by the changing leaves! On the drive up, I noticed more and more trees turning red -- it's really looking like fall. Anyway, if you're ever planning to come to Montreal for more than a couple of days, I'd suggest spending one day in Quebec City.
