Day Two - QueBec French Tour
Members of the Pine Tree Academy French II class began their first full day in the Province of Quebec by hiking St. Anne's Canyon. The fall colors were spectacular and the canyon and waterfall were breathtaking. After a delightful spaghetti lunch, made by the class, the students had a church service. Later in the day, they visited the magnificent Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupr, 30 kilometers east of Quebec. Continuing east, the students ended up at Le Petit Chateau, in the shadow of the grand Hotel Frontenac, for a cultural experience of the partaking of fondue. After dining, the group walked to La Citadel, a fort of historical importance and an active military installation, for an after dark tour. The students were engaged by fantastic and entertaining tour guides dressed as figures from Canadian military history. The students were also afforded a beautiful nighttime view of the old city from the high ground of the fort. After a stroll down the old streets, the class made its way back for a good night's rest.
