Sept 3rd

Our final day of vacation. Up and at em' we showered and said good-bye to the auberge...


...and made our way down to the St-Lawrence to take the Ferry. We took our Breakfast at a little resto overlooking the Ferry Terminal and then strolled around the beach and wharf...




... waiting for the Ferry to arrive...



Once we were on board and the ship set off to the north side of the river, and St-Simeon, we took picture after picture...




There was no access to the Bow, so I could only get a pic from inside... jusr as well because the waves crashing on board were coming out the the 3 level lounge!


Finally, 70 minutes later we arrived at St-Simeon...


...and then headed south towards Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré. I made my father a promise we'd do there, light a candle and say a prayer for him, and a promise made, is a promise kept...

We passed the Montmorency Falls...


Then crossed the St-Lawrence yet again in Québec City. ...and in a couple more hours... it was all over... as we crossed the St Lawrence one last time and exited the Jacque Cartier Bridge and made our way home-o.

It's been more than 20 years since I was last there... in April of 1986...

It's a truly beautiful place. One of the most beautiful in Canada I think.

Notre Dame is a fabulous fabergé egg interior.

St-Joseph's is magnificent on a massive scale, St-George's Round church is Halifax is a unique foible, and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré is repository the most beautiful iconography.

Not being particularly religious in a mainstream Christian sort of way, I'm still impressed any time I enter any of these spaces...
