Today we drove out of the city and over to Île d'Orleans, the idyllic island in the St. Lawrence River just outside of Quebec City. Known for it's amazing agriculture, we passed fields of strawberries (that's what a strawberry should taste like!) and trees loaded with apples. The houses were straight out of a storybook. Then on to Baie St-Paul arriving just in time for lunch. The fall colors were in full brilliance. Coming back to Quebec City we stopped at Montmorency Falls - it's even higher than Niagara Falls.

Montmorency Falls. There was a tram to the top (we didn't take it) and an observation bridge over the top. We walked out on the path with the thought of climbing up the stairs but as we got closer the spray was drenching. With the hour getting late, we headed back to our hotel.
