Monday Mosaic - Quebec City

Bonjour! I'm joining "Mosaic Monday" hosted by Mary @ Little Red House You can check out Mary's beautiful floral mosaic and the other blogs that are participating.

We recently vacationed in beautiful Quebec City, with it's charming stone buildings and flower filled window boxes. The majestic Chateau Frontenac hotel towering above the banks of the St. Lawrence, it's magical. The city looks as if it has been transplanted from France and reassembled on the cliffs jutting into the St. Lawrence River. We stayed at a lovely hotel in "uppertown", and enjoyed crepes each morning. We also got to see Cirque du Soleil's "Chemins Invisibles" for free! Timing is everything.

Here are a few of my favorite images. I love the history and charm of Quebec City.
