Day of Adventure in Quebec City

Monday, July 8, 2013

We happily started our big day in Quebec City with coffee and some snacks in our gite kitchen. Then the Bowman clan hiked to Hotel Ste-Anne for an amazing BIG breakfast.

Papa and Maman had decided to take a trip to the aquarium. Grandpa joined them. Papa decided the best way to get there was a half hour trip on the bus. He checked out the schedule and off they went. The aquarium is beside our train bridge to Levis.

Highlights of the aquarium visit:

 ü      seals
ü      polar bears
ü      snowy owl
ü      walrus show
ü      sharks in big Awesome Ocean tank – tunnel fish overhead
ü      Awesome Ocean – snakes, blue frog
ü      pond walk
ü      playground
ü      ice cream!
ü      pavilion –jelly fish, sea horses and sting rays – Sam touched a sting ray!

Back together on the bus…

There was still time to join the other Bowmans (they had been exploring historical sites) for a hike around town, a birthday dinner together at Hotel Ste-Anne (had a children’s menu), a walk past some artisan stalls and finally, a birthday cake to celebrate with Uncle Craig.

A great day for everyone!
