Quebec City

10 Sep

We just got in from our last evening in Quebec City.  There is so much I love about this city, and Quebec as a whole.

We had dinner at the Cafe du Monde on the St. Lawrence, a wonderful meal and a waiter that went out of his way to take care of us.

After dinner we strolled around the city, dropped by the Hotel Frontenac for one last visit and finally saw the rooftop garden and art display that was right across from our hotel.

We saw the spectacular Image Mill one last time;

The Image Mill

I love the European feel of Quebec City.

I love the friendliness and warmth of the people.  I love their genuineness.

I love the pace of life here.

I love the gardens and unique plants and flowers.

I love (and envy) the respect that drivers show cyclists and the civility and equality between them.

I covet the bikeability of the entire provence of Quebec – the 4000 km Route Verte!

I love the walkability of the city (albeit steep at times) and the abundance of bike paths.

I love the abundance of fresh and locally grown fruits, vegetables and cheeses;

and, the beautiful farms and fields on the Isle of Orleans that produce them.

I love the narrow cobblestone streets and the many cafes and bistros that line them.

and especially the bistro where we were able to have pizza and beer and watch the bike race.

I love the café magnifique of Quebec-

I love Quebec City, I want to go back!
