When you look at a map of the U.S. the northern part of Maine looks like it could be part of Canada, so that’s the first clue that it’s a pretty easy trek to places like New Brunswick, Montreal or Quebec City.
At the last minute the hubby and I decided a trip to Quebec City would be a great way to wind down our time in Maine. It’s little more than a 5 hour drive through small towns and beautiful wooded areas with the Kennebec River running through them.
In places, one could almost feel as if nothing had ever been there except for the moose which motorists were warned to be aware of. Though Maine is said to have lots of moose, would you believe I’ve not seen a single one!
On to Quebec City and the old town where French is the language of choice though on this trip it seemed that folks were a little more open to speaking English. Exploring the area is an absolute delight. The streets are narrow and cobblestoned meant for pedestrians only.
There’s quite a lot to do there, but you can find out about all that on Trip Advisor or in a guide book. What I’m going to share with you are the things that caught my eye.
Window boxes which no doubt change with the season.
Shutters, the kind that remind me of Provence.
Clever signs outside every shop and restaurant.
Art in unexpected places!
So there you have it, my view of Quebec City. If you’ve been there, please share what caught your eye.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
