In late September, after spending a month in Bangor, Maine, we headed for Quebec City to meet friends Jim and Chris and begin our fall “leaf peep.” While some maintenance and repairs were being done at the service facility, we toured the Prevost factory to see bus shells just like ours being constructed from the ground up.

Quebec City was delightful. The historic walled city will be 400 years old next year, and we spent a few days sightseeing and enjoying some fine cuisine. The old city is very European in feel; and of course French is the dominant language. Once again, I had to remember kilograms and liters in the grocery store.

St. Anne’s Gorge provided another scenic vista, as we enjoyed the waterfalls, the fall colors, and the suspension bridges. After sampling a little of Quebec, we headed back to Maine to spend a couple of days at Bar Harbor.
