My nephew Daniel and his family are now living in Ottawa, Canada. They took advantage of the beautiful fall weather to take a little roadtrip to Quebec a few weeks ago.
|The car was packed and all ready for adventure!|
|All packed and ready for anything!|
The new route gave their old GPS a fit. It claimed they were driving in the in the middle of a field for about an hour...

The City of Quebec sits on the St. Lawrence river. Here is a view across the river from the City.
|The St. Lawrence River, or Fleuve Saint Laurent|
The City of Quebec takes its name from an Algonquin Indian word, Kebec, meaning, "Where the river narrows".
The City of Quebec has served as a capital city of some sort for over 400 years. Today it stands as the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec.
The city and metropolitan area surrounding it are home to three-quarters of a million people.
|I love the fall foliage!|

The British scored a massive victory over the French at the Plains of Abraham in 1759. This decisive victory changed the course of American history, too.

The paths through the area attest to hikers in the area.
I love these shops along the narrow streets! (below)

It looks very beautiful at night, however!

I've always wanted to visit Quebec. I'm so glad Daniel and his family gave us this little tour!
