Bonjour from Quebec City.  Lou, Troy, and I have driven up arriving yesterday.  Great drive but long.  Stops were Staunton, VA and Glen Falls, NY.  We saw the Frontier Culture Museum at Staunton.  Pictures follow.  Whew!  Lots to see up here.

First the Frontier Culture Museum.  It is a large area made up of farm steads depicting where settlers were from.

The first was a 1600s English farmstead.

There were several more American farmsteads mostiy from the 1800s.  A facinating and well done collection.  However, we must get on out way.  Quebec is a long way from Virginia.

QUEBEC CITY

Quebec City doesn’t really look this good.  It is only  my superior photography skills that saved the city from looking so humdrum.  Hopefully, I have been able to make it look as good as it can.

  1. Capt. Don, You missed your calling. Anyone who can make an ugly place like that look good “in picture” should be professional. Ya’ll have a great time.
