Day 1—May 11: Quebec City. Pilot briefings for huge trip!

Enjoying the city we took a cab to the Musee des Beaux-Arts only to find it closed on Mondays!! Expected to view the Bryan Adams photo art exhibit. Next option was to “enjoy” our 50 minute walk in light rain: we walked the Battlefield ramparts, the Plains of Abraham which includes the Jardin of  Jeanne d’Arc (see impressive bronze statue) and finally  the Governors’ Promenade board walk along the St. Lawrence River back to the Hotel Frontenac.    For Trivial Pursuit fans: the Canadian Anthem “Oh Canada” was sung here on the Plains for the first time ever on St John Baptiste Day…June 24th in 1880.

As participants we met for introductions and attended an extensive briefing covering the general procedures of our journey.  Our meeting place is the historic Chateau Frontenac ideally located in the center of Quebec City, Canada.
