7/22: Last Day in Quebec

Our last day in Quebec together Jon and I tried to go the the Marche' Vieux Port just before 8am for breakfast, but it was all closed up.  Had to settle for not so good mochacino at Le Boulangerie et Cie again.  I returned to the market to use the internet before going back to Anomaly to help Jon run over to the fuel dock and then move to our final berth for the time away.

In the afternoon, I took the cute little electric bus as close as I could to the Fine Art Museum.  It dropped me near the Quebec Armory

From the Internet:  The Quebec City Armouries (French: Manège militaire de Québec, or simply Manège militaire) was a Gothic Revival drill hall for the infantry regiment Les Voltigeurs de Québec in Quebec City, Canada. It was built between 1885 and 1888 and designed by architect Eugène-Étienne Taché. The armoury was destroyed by a fire on April 5, 2008 and all but a rear wall and turrets from the front door were destroyed

I walked through the Parc Jean D'arc to get to the museum.

The Quebec art was either very religious or ultra modern, but there was a nice visiting exhibit of Victorian era paintings on loan from London.

I returned along the Plains of Abraham with sweeping views of the river.

We had a nice final visit with our new found friends.  Jon will see them again.
 Great new friends (L-R):  Gil, Yvan, Lise, and Henriette
