Un Air de 'ete at Point Rouge and Old Quebec City

Our next stop was at a small countryside campground in Point Rouge, Quebec on Monday, July 12th. Un Air de-ete Campgrund is hidden away off Highway 367 and is also neat and VERY French! The managers are a husband wife team (Andre and Francine). He speaks broken English and she speaks only French. For $31.61 (Canadian) nightly, we have 30A/W/S on a grassy, sunny pull-through space. We like it and will stay on for several nights.

Tuesday morning, July 13, we took the car and drove into Old Quebec City. The sky is overcast and the temperature is still in the low 80's with continued high humidity, but it is more tolerable than the days before. This old section of Quebec is on the highest point and overlooks the narrow part of the St. Lawrence River. The oldest existing fort in North America is at the highest point. We spent all day and took lots of pictures before having dinner at an open air cafe. This is a beautiful place and while the locals do not go out of their way to be hospitable, they are friendly enough to suit me.
