Quebec – July 1st

02 Jul

So, it really was Moving Day in Quebec on July 1st. We celebrated by riding our bikes to Montmorency Falls on the beautiful bike path. Many, many people were out riding – there was actually traffic to deal with!

The falls are definitely worth the ride but we were glad we went early as when we left, the tour buses arrived. We parked our bikes, went inside the building and looked around to pay someone our admission. It’s free unless you want to use the cable car. So, we walked across the bridge and went quite close to the falls. Luckily it was warm day because were sprayed by the mist!

After going to see the falls, we did a bit of shopping, boat chores and then rested up for the evening entertainment – The Ghost Tours of Quebec. I would totally recommend this as the guide showed us some really interesting parts of old Quebec that we would never have found on our own. Plus, we learned about the history – it was not all “The Order of Good Cheer” by Champlain. We learned about murders, executions, ships sinking, the cholera outbreak and of course, the many ghosts that haunt Quebec. Our guide, William Black, was excellent! We ended the tour inside a dark church.

The above picture is the view of Quebec from the top at about 9:00 pm. In the far right, is the mill that shows the movie (we will watch tonight).

I am glad that we did our cycling and ghost touring yesterday because the weather has turned. There is a strong NE wind and rain is on the way. This will be a good day for groceries, laundry…
