|Quebec City from Quartier Vieux-Levis|
Wellll, we loaded up the truck and headed to Quebec City....hills that is...large rock bluffs, charming, Newfoundland character homes, narrow Mexican streets and terrible bus drivers... Ils drive trop vitely!.(Merci Monsieur Tooker por ma classe en Francais!) We were almost on the bus...the side that is...I really need to learn some French swearwords but until then, I will just have to resort to showing them they are number one! We are at La Relache campground in St-Romuald, Quebec which is across the seaway from the City but has excellent access to the cycle routes and bridge.A late afternoon 46 km ride allowed us to explore the seaside village quarters of St. Romuald, Levis, and St. Joseph. It is such a beautiful,, multi purpose pathway winding along the St Lawrence river offering grand views of the harbour and Quebec city. I loved the neighborhood cruise through the eclectic mix of housing...much charm and certainly no cookie cutter planning here. There was very little signs of tropical storm Irene other than a few downed trees, rushing muddy creek waters and the odd puddle of water in the campsite.
