Québecité

This week in Québec City was perfect. The weather was amazingly sunny and warm. We stayed with Julie's relatives in Lévis and spent our days there and in the capital. Highlights included a magnificent sunset looking towards Québec from Lévis and visting the Musée national des Beaux-arts du Québec where we saw the spectacular exhibition, Camille Claudel and Rodin: Fateful Encounter, featuring more than 155 works (including 22 original photographs) and 81 archival documents.

Château Frontenac in the morning from the Québec-Lévis Ferry.


Past meets present on Rue Donnacona.


Pretty young woman who is a cashier at the shop at Musée national des Beaux-arts du Québec.


Typical scene in the evening as couples scout out the menus of the many, many restos in vieux Québec.


Detail of a trompe-d'oeil mural covering a wall of a 5-story building, depicting a continuation of the cobbled street that leads you into scenes from the history of Quebec, populated by life-size historical figures.


Accordion music and dessert at the Café de Paris. Nice finish to an evening.
