On the Promenade

Up on what is the Terrace Dufferin or, the promenade, as the English like to call it, you get some of the best views of not only the river and south shore, but the Chateau Frontenac and, of course, the historic boardwalk itself.

And yes, you did see a monument dedicated to that General Wolfe. Some very distant relative of mine, I’m sure. The monument sits right next to the Chateau along with one dedicated to Gen. Montcalm of the French forces.

The American Consulate also sits to one side of the Chateau. There’s a lot of history on display here, in this one small area. Including, up on the bluff, the Citadel.  But mostly, people only have eyes for the river, and the amazing views off into the distance.
