7/20: 3rd Day in Quebec

Today was a much nicer day; sunny but not too hot.  Jon got the bikes out, which involves some difficult lifting with Anomaly right now, and we biked to the Quebec yacht club.  It was another beautiful and heavily used bike path along the water.
     The yacht club is in a pretty spot, but more expensive and way far away from town, so no reason to move there.  After lunch back on the boat, I wrestled with the internet and finally gave up.  Went up to do some plein air painting of Bistro Brigantin in the lower city instead.

I texted Jon to meet me at 4:30 and we ended up with another great meal at L'Omelette.  We enjoyed the street artists on the way back, before joining our other new friends, Henriette and Yvan at a concert by the Quebec Symphony performing Classic Movie Themes.
This musician can play multiple glasses at once like chords on his "glass harp"!

Our way back to the boat was blocked by the nightly Moulin a Images, which is a huge movie shown on the grain silos of the still operating Bunge company.  The huge movie tells the history of Quebec in a very clever way, taking advantage of the unique surface of the "screen".  For more information on "the biggest projection in the world, see

Jon got Yvan's explanation in English; I got it in French from Henriette!
