We left Chambly around 0630 and continued north. The Richelieu River is scenic and bordered by tiny villages on both sides, with names like St.-Charles-sur-Richelieu, St-Marc-sur-Richelieu, St. Anoine-sur-Richelieu, St-Denis-sur-Richelieu---- you get the idea. I believe that sur-Richelieu means "on the lower Richelieu."
The churches in Quebec nearly all have silver steeples, like this one in St-Antoine.
|I don't know the reason for the silver steeples.|
We entered the St. Lawrence at 10:15 and met half a dozen ocean going freighters.
|The Algoseas passing us.|
The current on the St. Lawrence here is 5-6 knots, and we are headed upstream. Yikes!
