Autumn in the Isle d' Orleans

                                                                        Hello everyone,

                                                   I hope you are enjoying your week. We
                                                   drove up to Quebec, a week or so ago and
                                                   enjoyed all the beautiful fall colors on our
                                                   nine hour drive each way. I love seeing all
                                                   the farms on the drive through Quebec.

                                         

Although we spent quite a bit
of time touring Lower Town Quebec
  we actually stayed on the Isle D'
  Orleans this time in a cosy little
rustic cottage.
              I enjoyed seeing the French Canadian
colorful homes .








                                                                The Isle D' Orleans is only a
                                                                 short drive from Quebec City
                                                                 and it takes a little over an hour
                                                                 to drive around the whole island.

                                                                   It is very charming and
                                                                   a slower pace then the city.
                                                                   Kind of like our own little
                                                                   Island (PEI).
We have been to Quebec in winter
a couple of times recently but it
is 7 years since we went there in
autumn.

of a cafe.

As always we enjoyed going for daily walks
in the fresh air and taking in all the beauty of
the colors of autumn.

There are a few of these tiny church like
buildings on the drive around the island.


                                                                   The mustard yellow of this field
                                                                    looked so pretty with the foliage
                                                                    colors.
                                                               They have a lot of beautiful old
                                                                barns that have so much character.

                                            A little village on the south side of the
                                                       island.
                                                          I have more photos to share of both
                                                        the Island and of course Old Quebec as well.

                                                           I just have one more garden tour here at
                                                         home and then it is  major clean up time
                                                         in our garden before it turns cold and
                                                         winter sets in.

                                                                       Thank you for coming along
                                                           with me today.

                                                                                  Take care,

                                                                                            Carolyn

Thanks, Carolyn
For the beautiful post. I would love to take a cruise along the river from Montreal to Boston in the Fall. Of course, I would stop by your island PEI. Keep posting, because I love to see your beautiful world.
Joyously,
Betty
