Last weekend was Victoria Day weekend in Canada, which meant that we had Monday off. I went crazy and took Friday off, too, and decided to check out Quebec City. I hadn’t been, and it seemed like a neat place to check out. It was indeed neat and I’m glad I went. It’s apparently the only walled city in North America north of Mexico City, and has a super-cute old town with cobblestone streets and cute little shops. I highly recommend it!
Without further ado, here are some pics!

This being Canada, there’s STILL snow that hasn’t melted.
The 22nd Regiment, based at the Quebec Citadelle, has a goat as its mascot. The goat’s ancestors were given to Queen Elizabeth II by the Shah of Persia. Fancy goats.
The largest cannon at the Citadelle. It’s pointed south down the St. Lawrence river because that’s where they thought the Americans would attack from. 😉

Dog parking, 10 minutes max. Not sure if they ticket dogs that are parked there longer.
