A Stroll through Quebec City

This is a repost of my second post, dated November 3, 2010, linking to:
Chari's Sunday Favorites at Happy to Design
Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday for "Q"
Outdoor Wednesday at A   Southern Daydreamer


  On a  recent trip to  Quebec City,  I discovered a  stunning city with  breathtaking Fall color  (something usually not seen  in my part of  Texas.)
Quebec City  is one of the oldest cities in North America and the old part of the city still has it's fortified walls.

Although  fascinated with taking pictures of architectural details such as doors,  windows, steeples and such (and have  a lot of them),  I  was really taken by the spirit of the street scenes.

Not sure what was going on in here but the translation is“skin to skin”.

But,  I do know what was going on in here:  Fabulous French  Food  which was  oh si delicieux et fortement recommande!

  1. O, Honey...your photos just blew me away. They are all wonderful. Lucky you to have been to France. I have always wanted to go but, at this late in the game, I must be happy with viewing scenes such as these.

    Thanks for following..I am going to follow you, too..maybe we can meet somewhere in the middle. :))

  11. Hi Honey...

    What a great post to revisit, my friend! So glad that you shared it with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party this week! I have never been to Quebec City...but after viewing all of your photos...I would LOVE TO GO!!! I love the "old world...european" feel! It reminded me of walking down a few of the side streets in Paris! Simply awesome! It looks like you had a fabulous time!

    You know, living 30 yrs. in south Texas and then moving to Colorado...I always just stand in awe of the autumn season and all the glorious colors! Autumn is now my favorite season of the year! Hehe!

    Warmest wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  15. Loved all your street scene photos especially that one where they have a swag of fall corn cobs hanging. Have to remember that one for next Fall around my door if I can afford to buy that many corncobs...lol. Maybe one of the friendly farmers around here will give me some cow corn. :)

  20. I haven't been to Quebec in years! I honeymooned there 30 years ago in January..brr....

    We didn't care about the cold, barely left the room!

    I need to go make a visit...

  26. Wow! Beautiful photos! What a great find this must have been. The city looks gorgeous...and very European too. I absolutely love the fall colors everywhere. And the architecture is just breathtaking!

  27. Quebec looks enchanting - your images are beautiful. I could probably lead you through most of the Western Provinces of Canada without a map, but have never been to Quebec. I want to walk in your footsteps!

  28. I need to visit! What month would you recommend to see the best fall colors?

    =)

  29. This is lovely.

    I have never been to Quebec but I think I need to rectify that obviously oversight on my part.

    Like Sue I'm wondering what month the fall colors are the best.

    Thanks for a lovely stop today on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter 'Q'.

    This was quite perfect.

    A+

  30. Beautiful photos! The first one looks like it should be a castle in Europe. I love the architecture of it and the store fronts in your other photos. Oh, I would love to travel and see the sites in Quebec City :o) thanks for "taking" us with you there through your photos.

    Blessings & Aloha!

  31. You captured Quebec beautifully!
    Family lore is that one of my ancestors died on The Plains of Abraham - a Scot fighting with the French. It's been a long time since I last visited - we used to drive through every year on our way home to Cape Breton.

  32. I love Quebec City. My father took us to visit when I was in high school...I still remember that trip, vividly. We stayed at the Chateau...WOW! and walked the streets of both the upper and lower city. It was an amazing place!

    Love your blog,

    Cheers!
