Vieux-Limoilou: Things To See in Quebec City

Hey there, how are things coming along? Yes, things have been rough for everyone. I'm overcome with beastly lethargy, I no longer know which time and day I existed.

Is it Monday or Wednesday? I see we are in April now. Is physical distancing and staying indoors the new normal? I hope not. For sure, everyone is praying this pandemic we currently find ourselves in will soon be over.

I've been out of work since March. I'm aware I'm not the only one. Many are worried about the future including bills, food, and rent.

Right now, all are dreaming of a world free of viruses, crimes, disasters and whatever threat that can be named. How do you pass the time? Working from home? Netflix? Looking for ways to earn extra money?

Since I'm no longer on the payroll, I've been doing lots of, ahem, sleeping. Sadly, it no longer contributes anything to my stature. Haha. (Gosh, I need to get over the height thing!)

Also, I disciplined myself to write 500 words per day, previously it was 300, so I can be productive in spite of breathing sedentary. How about you? What makes you busy these days?


The week before, I've shared with you where we stayed during our 3-day road trip to Quebec City. We went there last March. This time, I'll show you around the neighborhood through my phone stills. But before that, let's chat a bit.

Eat

Vieux-Limoilou is littered with restaurants and cafes. The food scene is thriving. On our first day, we went for Japanese cuisine to a spot called Hosakaya-Ya. The place small, warm, intimate with great, reasonably priced, food. Highly recommend!

We didn't make an online reservation. We simply walk in. Fortunately, the place is empty so we were attended shortly.

Many choices were in the neighborhood too like sandwich shops, burgers, pizza, coffee and desserts, convenience store meals.

Day two after we visited Hotel de Glace and Old's Quebec's Petit Champlain, I ventured out of my own. Why it's still early and I'm curious to know how the locals go about their lives in this part of the world.

When I stepped outside the building, down the steep narrow stairs of our Airbnb rental, I heard a church bell pealing from a nearby tower, reminding the faithful to get down on their knees and pray. Curious where it came from, I went on a short adventure to find the sanctuary.

I was confident to locate it, even without looking at the map. Just because, everything in this area can be reached within a short walking distance.

I tread through snow, ice, and chilly floodwaters to get there. I know, I make it sound like it's dangerous and difficult when it was actually fun and enjoyable. This means I should do this more often without the kid and the hubby. Haha. 

Well, it's nice to take a breather from time to time away from responsibility and home life. Do you do this? 

Anyway, here's Vieux-Limoilou. Scroll down for a quick photo tour of the area.
