Rustic Barn with Red Doors, Ile d’Orleans
Quebec Month / Installment 4
Situated just a few miles north of Quebec City is the Ile d’Orleans, a smallish island of about 20 miles in length (about the size of N.Y.’s Manhattan Island) and one of the earliest areas settled in Quebec. Its coast-hugging main road is filled with postcard-perfect pastoral vistas bordered by wide expanses of the St. Lawrence and distant rolling mountains.

makes me want to move back to the country, beautiful!
So true. But absence makes the heart grow fonder as well and makes the memories more dear.
Beautiful job on the photos, very nice.
Gorgeous photography! Love it 🙂
I always like pictures of cemetery for some reason. You take good pictures.
Thanks for your comments. I like cemetery pictures also, as well as cemeteries generally. I find them to be contemplative places and reminders of the important but transient and fragile things in life, of which we need to make the most while we have the time to do so.
