We arrived at the campground near Quebec City on Monday the 25th.  At the border, our camper was stopped and searched thoroughly.   I guess we just looked suspicious. Actually what happened is that  they asked us if we had any wild blue berries and Linda said yes!!! On Tuesday we were given a bus of Quebec City, the Isle d'Orleans and further North to see Sainte Anne De Beaupre cathedral.  All are along the Saint Lawrence Seaway.  Quebec City was founded by Samuel de Champlain in 1608 and has a very interesting history.  Today several of our group went back and just walked all around that gorgeous city.  The first picture is the Parliament Building.  The Chateau Frontenac is the large hotel and major landmark.  You can see it from all over the city.  Other pictures included are of the cathedral.  It's an amazing place.  Our tour guide at the cathedral was definitely proud of this church. I think he could have spent all day with our group telling us about every detail. Quebecquors (sp) are proud that one of the major natural resources here is water. Well it has rained the entire time we have been here!! It is a beautiful city with great site and restaurants. It is Europe right here in North America. Tomorrow we are off to the Gaspe.
