The weather turned cold, windy, cloudy, and foggy earlier with some very light rain. Fortunately we were on a bus tour to the Montmorency Falls and the Isle d'Orleans where they make maple syrup. The bus was packed but Mary Alice and I were comfortable.
The tour guide told us a lot about the history of Quebec and the conflicts between the French and English over this part of the world. The English finally won it but the people here insisted on speaking French as they still do today. Mary Alice is right at home with these French speaking Canadians and she has fun practicing her foreign language skills.
The bus took us out of town and toward the Falls. The waterfall is about 275 feet high and cascades into a small bay which then empties into the St. Lawrence River. I didn't see much to photograph on this trip except for the changing colors of the tree and bush foliage and of course the waterfall. I hope you enjoy them.
We disembark the ship tomorrow morning, spend a couple days here in Quebec and fly home via Newark NJ on Saturday. We have two more full days on our own here so I'll do one more blog about Quebec (remember "kay-bek").
