Default A trip back home

I went on the last long week-end to my home town (now called Saguenay) in the Province of Quebec, Canada in order to see my Dad (which is not getting younger), my kids and some friends.

It was a 5 day trip with a lot of driving and less time off that I was expecting. However, I was able to take some photos:

The town and the old bridge:









Churches:





and my "ride" flying there...

I like the evening shots the best.

A nice series of shots. All are well done.

That is a very interesting bridge. Is it just for pedestrians and bicycles? It seems too narrow for automobile traffic.

Hi,

It is now only for pedestrians and bicycles (and I saw a scooter). It was used for a long time for automobiles (http://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/W...de_Sainte_Anne). It was replaced by a more modern bridge in the 70's (which was closed for nearly a month last winter due ... to a fire!).
