Welcome to the Quebec Yatch Club. This is where we'll be sailing from. Not a long sail ride, just on the St-Lawrence.
Here we go, we're not actually going to put the sails up as it's my little guy's first time sailing but we'll just go by motor. And yeah I know the motor isn't going that fast. 6 knots is actually kinda slow but enjoy the scenery.
The cliff to the right is known as Cap Diamant
Oh look, there's a Martello tower on the cliff
Here you can see the Loews Concorde which is a hotel and also has a rotating restaurant at the top. I've always thought that it must be hell to be there when you're drunk but I tried it this Christmas and everything turned out okay
That's Levis on the other side of the river.
Getting closer to Cap Diamant
Here you can see the fortifications on Cap Diamant.
WTF?!? Shit! Those were pretty big waves. The FIL put my BF in charge of the boat and he caught waves from a huge boat passing by. I was so busy taking photos that I didn't notice and since I was sitting on top of the cabin that I almost took a dunk in the St-Lawrence with no life vest. But as you can see I am still on the boat.
Hey look there's the Chateau Frontenac in the distance
Fortifications. I can tell you this, those steps are a bitch to walk up.
The Chateau again
There's the funicular!! (Someone asked me pics of this last time). It's an elevator that brings you up or down the cliff if you're too lazy to walk up the steps. It also broke a while back, the cables snapped and a few people died, but I don't like to think of that when I'm on it (because yes I'm often too lazy to go up those steps)
Here's a view of the Petit Champlain, this is where Quebec City was first inhabitated. It's a very nice place with cobblestone streets. That boat is the Louis-Joliet and it's to take short cruises on the St-Lawrence.
Another view of the city from another angle
Oh look at the tugboat
This is the ferry that does Quebec/Levis, with the Chateau Frontenac in the background
And here we are back at the Yatch Club. Hope you enjoyed the trip
