Quebec City, A City of Historical Buildings, Cobblestone Streets and Murals – Day 27

Again in Quebec City. We decided to take our bicycles and go riding again. This time we headed north along the bank of a smaller river that flows into the St. Lawrence River here at Quebec City.

Later in the day we walked back into the old city near the river. The shops and buildings in this area were built between the late 1600s and the early 1800s. The streets are cobblestones. This is a  statue and fountain showing what used to be placed on the very bow of sailing ships.

There are some amazing murals painted on the sides of some very old buildings. This one shows various famous people who colonized the city over the last 300+ years. The painting is amazingly lifelike.

    • Hi Diane and Bruce. What a wonderful surprise to hear from you both…you are the best! Thank you for your kind words about our calling to serve in Germany helping young adults to become better prepared for work through their getting small loans for education and also their getting placement skills help and training. We are excited to help! Please say hello to and give our love to everyone at home.

      iboats’ Captain and 1st Mate,

      Bruno and Cari…Guess who is the real captain! 🙂

  2. Great reports!

    If you have a chance, you may want to stop at Baie St-Paul, my hometown. It’s a wonderful little town, located 60 miles downstream of Québec city, nested in an ancient glacier bay. It’s renowed for his art galleries (there’s more than 20, for a 7000 population), shops and restaurants. Peoples are very friendly.

    It’s built on the old european model, i.e. with the Church in the center and the Streets starting from there in a star-like pattern.

    If you stop there (you’ll have to enter/leave the marina at high tide), you could take your bikes and head to the center of the village, 1 mile further, and eat at the Pierre-Narcisse restaurant/terrace; it’s owned by one of my friend.

    Have a safe trip!

    • Thanks Steve for your kind thoughts and recommendation to visit your town of Baie St-Paul. Our plan is to leave Quebec City Monday morning and head some 80 miles downstream to the marina at Port De Refuge Cap A L’aigle, just a couple of miles downstream from the town of the same name. Based on the weather, and especially the wind and the tide (as you mentioned), we may or may not be able to stop and visit in your town during the day on Monday. We will certainly try.

      Best regards.

      iboats’ Captain,

      Bruno
