Quebec City Day 2

Today we had a picnic lunch, then walked around the citadel and the Plains of Abraham. After that we went to the Quebec Aquarium, where Mama took this cool picture of a bug.
The aquarium was full of friendly animals…


I touched a starfish.
The highlight was the seal show.
This guy reminded me of Bella asking for food.

Quebec City

Quebec City is absolutely lovely. We had a nice time today walking around town. This is the view from the old city walls.
Lunch. The weather was so beautiful that my folks wanted to find a restaurant with an open window they could sit next to. We found one!

The Chateau Frontenac. Pretty fancy – I think I’d like to stay here next time I’m in town.
Thomas wouldn’t be afraid to climb up on these ladders.

Trois Rivières

Tonight was our second-to-last concert! It was extra special for me because my parents were there. They drove for 2 days to get here.
After the concert we came to Quebec City and we’ll stay here for a few days. It will be nice to do a little sightseeing.

La Tuque

Today Fred was on tv promoting tomorrow’s concert in Trois Rivières.
We drove about 2 hours north for our concert tonight. We got to town early and had a short rehearsal in the church for some new music we’ll be playing this weekend.

There was just enough seating for 100 people in the church, and we had 101! There were people everywhere, including behind us in the chorus section.

I’m excited because my parents are coming to visit tomorrow. We will spend a couple of days in Quebec City together, then meet up for our last concert on Sunday.

Cap Rouge

Today we played at St. Felix du Cap Rouge, in Quebec City. This church was tucked away in a cute little neighborhood. We had our smallest audience so far, but they were very enthusiastic and friendly.

This painting was on the wall directly between the two violinists, right at eye level. I couldn’t stop looking at it, even when we were playing.
Because the lion had feet like a person.

Drummondville

Our church tonight was huge. We had a good crowd too, 240 people. They just completed renovations on the church and our concert was part of a big thank-you party for all the donors. After the concert we were invited to a reception. Someone made a speech that I didn’t understand at all, and there were some very nice hors d’oeuvres.

Les Bergeronnes

We arrived in Les Bergeronnes yesterday to this fancy sign outside the church.
We got a very warm welcome from the people in this small town. We stayed with host families last night who fixed us dinner and breakfast. This is Mezzo.
On the way south to Trois Rivieres, the highway came to an end and all the cars loaded on to a big flat boat, which transported us across a fjord to where the road picked back up. I never heard of such a thing. People were out kayaking in the fjord.
