On the St. Lawrence

On this cloudy and rainy feast of St. Lawrence, we followed the river which bears his name a little farther north to visit the shrine of St-Anne-de-Beaupré, it's roots going all the way back to 1658.

(Look carefully, and you can see the St. Lawrence in the first photo through the mist behind the basilica.)

Heading back toward our home base, we stopped in at the Old City's Farmers' Market on the river banks to pick up some local fare for a simple supper in the hotel.

So, a fresh baguette, some regional cheeses and sausage, fruit and veggies, wine and pastries are on our grand buffet tonight.  If you're in the neighborhood, stop by--there's plenty to go around!
