Just a couple exploring the outdoors

Quebec City – The Historic City of North America

Quebec City is the capital city of the province of Quebec and is one of the oldest European settlement in North America. Samuel de Champlain arrived here and adopted the Algonquin word, Quebec, meaning “where the river narrows”, referring to the grand St. Lawrence River. The St. Lawrence River begins its flow from the west end of Lake Ontario and flows through the provinces of Ontario and Quebec and drains into the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Huntsville – A Short Day Trip

Woke up to a gorgeous bright sunny day on a slightly chilly morning. As the temperatures begin to drop in early fall and it is raining frequently but the temperatures are still not below freezing yet, you ideally should not waste a bright sunny day when you get one by staying indoors. The previous day was all cloudy with some rain later in the afternoon, but when we saw the bright sun outside the next day, we felt a strong urge to get out and soak up the sun to replenish our energy levels.

But ours was a slow start to the day with no plans. We woke up late and seeing that beautiful sunny day outside while having our breakfast, we cooked up a plan for a short day trip and by 12pm we hit the road. Destination: Huntsville, Ontario.
