Quebec City post 3

Went for 4 miles yesterday.  My longest run in over a week.  I still have pain in my groin,  it is not getting worst but also not better.  Today I rested.  I am so over all this extra rest.
Tomorrow I will know when I will see the PT.

We took the kids on a boat excursion.  They loved it.  It is a great way to see the city and get beautiful pictures.

1. Waiting to get on the boat.


2. We had a tour guide dressed as Louis Riel.


3. At Orleans Island and Montmorency Falls.  Those falls are actually 98 feet higher than Niagara falls.



After the boat ride we walked in Place Royale and Petit Champlain an historical area in Quebec where there's a lot of shops and restaurants.  Also many stairs and hills.

1. Place Royale.  Notre-Dame des Victoires Church is considered the oldest stone church in North America, was built in 1688.


Quebec is a HILLY town.


And we have lots of stairs! Escalier Casse-Cou means "Breakneck stairs".  It is the oldest one in the city, the original structure was built in 1635. 


From top of escalier casse-cou, me and the kids going down.  Old Quebec Funicular for those who are not brave enough to use the stairs on the right, opened in 1879.  Funny T-Shirt we saw in a store where we got the "Angry Moose" shirts.

Oh wow, you guys are having an awesome time! Yeah!! I was wondering, did you raise your kids bilingual? If yes, is it difficult?

Great pictures. I haven't been to Quebec in a long time - and it isn't that far! I should really go this summer sometime.

That vacation looks great! I've only been to Canada once and that was on the Montana border where the Prince of Whales hotel is in Glacier Park. I've always wanted to go to Quebec and Montreal and to give my french some exercise.

Hope you get good news at the PT!

You go great pictures! What tool do you use to make collages? I haven't found one that I can actually use yet!
