From Hotel Frontenac
The weather was a bit hazy this morning, but the wind was calm.  After a quick breakfast we went out into town.  We made our way to the Hotel Frontenac and explored hallways and view windows, looking to get a unique picture from that perspective.  We also saw into many guest rooms as the maids were cleaning them.

We went in search of one last bead store, using the GPS and a paper map to wind our way thru Quebec.  It only took 30 minutes, but when we arrived it was closed.  :(   The clerk at the store next door said the bead store was only open occasionally this time of year.

Heading back to the hotel area we stopped for a 3D movie on the history of Quebec.  It had live water, fake muskets and canons, and other embellishments.

After a few last pictures of the ships (two more cruise ships had arrived today) from the citadel overlooking the harbor, we headed back for our 3pm sail away.  They allowed passengers onto the helipad deck, where they served hot chocolate.  We went up to the top of the ship for the actual departure and took a bunch of photos of the city and coastline.

Tonight's menu includes lobster, and the entertainment is a comedienne.  Tomorrow we're at sea and then on to Halifax.
