Looking for a slower pace for our trip into Quebec City, we detoured onto Route 132 at St. Jean Port Joli. We were now down by the Saint Lawrence River, drifting lazily through small towns and villages, each with its own gleaming church. On through L’Islet-Sur-Mer, L’Anse-a-Gilles, Cap. St. Ignace, Pointe St. Michel and finally Beaumont, before heading back up to Route 20 and our final leg into the Quebec City traffic melee. What must these places have been like before the advent of the automobile and high speed roads?
Enjoy the View
Reminders of a gentler time
when travel speed was more sublime.
Up gentle hills we’d slowly climb
past the steeples where church bells chime.
Through summer heat or winter clime
This journey was worth ev’ry dime.
