Maritime Road Trip – Day 1

I’m back! It was a busy ten-day trip, and I sure appreciated sleeping in my own bed last night. I have lots of caches to log and pictures to sort through. I just got through the pictures from the first day of the trip.

We crossed into Quebec at Hawkesbury. Goodbye to Ontario for ten days!

Our first stop of the day was at Trois-Rivieres, where we visited a virtual geocache at the grave of Maurice Duplessis.

The cemetery was gorgeous, and full of beautiful marble statues. There are more pictures over on Flickr.

After looking around Trois-Rivieres, we drove on to Quebec City. Before setting up camp for the night, we visited Old Quebec City.

This canonball in the tree is a virtual geocache. The canonball has supposedly been there since the Battle of the Plains of Abraham in 1759, and over the years the tree has grown around it.

Here’s me standing in front of Quebec’s National Assembly building.

We spent a few minutes around this fountain in front of the National Assembly.

Old Quebec is very beautiful and colourful. It was hard to choose which pictures to put up. I’ll probably put some more up on Flickr once I’ve gone through the pictures for the entire trip. Here’s a street scene I really liked.

Wee cacher hammed it up in front of a canon.

We thought this sign was lam-e.

With the sun setting on Quebec City, we went to the nearby KOA campground to set up and get some sleep before we moved on to New Brunswick.
