Then there were the big moments; the highlights so to speak (as old friend Bob would call them). First there was Quebec City for an overnight. Mom and Dad have had many memorable moments there, including their honeymoon, and Dad knew the walled city well. For me the memories in Quebec City included Winter Carnival, Nancy and Bonham. We walked up and down and all around the lower and upper sections as well as the edges of the Plains of Abraham, with the best food in North America wafting through the air around us. Finally we settled down for an exquisite French meal and then to top it off we trekked to a pub to watch the New York Rangers put the finishing touches on the Habs as we devoured peanuts mercilessly. Being in Quebec City for this occasion was different than say, being in Montreal. Quebec wants its Nordiques back. The Canadiens could soon be mortal enemies once again, so two Bruins fan in the midst was no big deal. Our next big moment was the awe-inspiring Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré Basilica and some more revisited memories for Dad. Spend an hour inside and you cannot help but be moved by the splendor and glory of it all. The next day was another big highlight: A whale/fjord cruise along the St Lawrence and Saguenay Rivers: Humpback, Minke and Beluga Whales, 1000 foot depths, waterfalls, splendor of a different variety.
