It’s been a while since I consciously embarked upon a dérive, but last weekend my wife and I headed over the fleuve to Old Quebec City and allowed whim to point the way…
I’ve no idea what this group call themselves, but their Irish influence folky music was rather pleasing. We caught the last couple of songs, which are features in the montage of field recordings I took during the dérive below. Why not have a listen while you view the remaining photographs? (The recording is a bit windy at times, but listenable)
If you’d like to see one of the photographs in more detail, enlarge it with a click!
Quebec is an incredibly vibrant city, particularly throughout the summer, when literally every week is packed with festivals, events, buskers, and people exploring, shopping, dining, and having a good time. There’s always something to see and do.
We drifted upon an art exhibition amidst these gardens situated within the vast and beautiful Battlefields Park. The park also contains The Plains of Abraham, where a pivotal battle took place, part of the Seven Years’ War between the English And French.
