We have now been from one side of Canada to the other in a motorhome, British Columbia to Labrador, we loved it, it is a fabulous country and quite an achievement with memories we shall treasure forever.
For Quebec the following were some of the highlights, montreal and its surrounding areas, we had quite a walk through the central areas, I remember the world cup was blearing out on city centre TV’s and I think this was the year France won it if memory serves me right, I’m wrong it was held in Africa for the 1st time, south Africa and Spain beat Holland 1-0, we watched it in th campsite bar on 11th July, we were in nova scotia on the way to newfoundland when we watched it probably at Antigonish I certainly remember having a meal with wine at the outside bar/ restaurant whilst it was on, quebec city, fort quebec, queens governor’s residence and sitting on the wall with fab views out over Quebec city, The Fairmont Chateau Frontenac and its pure French chateau presence in the landscape and walking the boardwalk in front of it, this is the Fairmont one rather than that in Paris , saguenay fjord, tadoussac, trois pistoles and the lovely sunset as the ferry crossed the st Lawrence, just magical, gaspe and its peninsular a spectacular coastline with views to die for, bike race through Quebec city and all the spectators out to see it on a very warm day in the old capital, the citadel, st lawrence river, lac timiscaming, les escoumins, bardville, ferry, grande grave, campsite juneau, cap de rosier, forillon national park, camping baie de gaspe, riviere au renard, basilica notre dame du quebec, rocking chairs, kayaks, l’heritage 1, light houses, boardwalks, musicians, rooftops, skyscrapers, robbie burns in montreal, maison maillou, point a la recommee, grande grave is amazing, see it as the image on the audio diary, dolphins, possibly whales, sunsets, provisional and national parcs, more of the trans-canada highway or as we say in quebquoise "Route Transcanadienne" & all ports in between. All very French "trois service sil vous plais" We have been from one side of Canada to the other, oh you know that by now... think I've mentioned it ha-ha.
All very French it was so weird as we crossed the bridge near Ottawa into Quebec province, all of a sudden it was totally French, other things we remember well were wild roses, buffalo bill’s travelling show memorabilia, the old Victoria esplanade in front of the chateau hotel Frontenac, museums, history, wolfe and his battles (probably better not to mention in Quebec) ha-ha, number plates displaying “Je Me Souviens” or I remember Quebec, maillou house history, hotel Jardin ste anne, surrealist art work in Quebec city, St Roch, Benjo buses, sunsets on the St Lawrence and just enjoying the slightly different cultural feel of being in Quebec province, we will both miss and remember.
