We had a very slow morning both before and after the awesome continental breakfast at Manoir Sherbrook. There weren’t any cold cuts but whatever they had was top notch, eg. bread, pastries, jams.

The weather still looked blustery outside but was set to calm down. We stepped outside before 1100 and returned to get a second layer, but opted to keep our shorts in favour of longs. It was about 30 minute walking to the old town.

Mass was on a Notre Dame so we couldn’t pay to get in. We didn’t make it back there but we had been to the “real thing” already. We continued NE to Place Jacques-Cartier, then the old port where a boat show was held.

It was free entrance, so we both went into the boat show. Kim was wow’ed by the Monte Carlo yachts on show and got motivated into investigating a purchase. Afterwards, we went to the Marche Bonsecours where we didn’t find anything we felt like eating. It wasn’t a very “picturesque” outing in terms of taking pictures as there were lots of works going on and the Hotel de Ville had scaffolding.

We had Vietnamese on the way back and settled in for a rest in the warmth of our room. This was the first coolish day in Canada. Dinner was a simple pizza and salad at a chain called Pizza Pizza. It was a lazy day after many days on the go.
