We picked up our car on Thursday morning and drove back to the hotel to get our luggage. We got a Toyota Corolla. Not sure why its a best seller. Lets just say that it wouldn't be on my list.
We got directions from our hotel clerk and headed out into Montreal traffic. We made it about 2 miles and then gridlock! After sitting for a long time, we made a turn and headed out on our own. After driving around for 40 minutes looking for a sign for the freeway, we found ourselves at the same light that we had turned from. We finally got on the correct road and headed out. Soon we realised we weren't where we wanted to be. We finally pulled over, got out the Tom Tom and plugged it in. It wanted to take us back into Montreal and catch the freeway. By then, we had found a different route off the freeway. We went that way. It took longer than I had expected, almost 4 1/2 hours to reach Quebec. Then it took another hour to reach our hotel in Old Quebec.
We finally arrived, unpacked and went to dinner.
morning we walked around lower Quebec and then took the funicular to upper Quebec. We walked to the Citadel and took a tour. It was built between 1820 and 1850 by the British after they took over Quebec. We then walked along the original wall around old Quebec City. We then tok a tour of the Bascillica De Notre Dame. It is the oldest Parish in North American, having been built around the middle 1600's. Very impressive! We walked around the seminary behind the church and made our way back to our hotel. Another 5 1/2 mile day. A short nap and then dinner with wine finished us off for the night.
