“Travels to a Different Time” : 10August2004: Around Charlevoix in Quebec

I don’t see much point in spending $60 for breakfast for the three of us so Andrew and I had a short drive into Point au Pic and found a bakery and purchased some Brioche so breakfast back at the Manoir Richelieu of just baked Brioche and some pear juice along with in room coffee. After breakfast into the Passat and a drive along Shore Drive. Fantastic driving on narrow up and down roads. There were many beautiful scenic sights of rolling hills with farmhouses all with a view of the St. Lawrence River. The biggest town was Baie St. Paul with a population of 7,387. We stopped here for a late lunch or early supper whatever you want to call it i.e. pizza and moules. There was an interesting art exhibit at a church of local artists. On our trip back to Manoir Richelieu we stopped at several roadside “artists’ studios”. Much of the art is touristic depictions of the local sights. Most rather amateurish and overpriced. The scenery here is much like that of Cape Breton in Nova Scotia except there are numerous villages to pass through. Back at 20:00 to watch “The Passion of Christ” as an in-room movie.
