B is for BAIE ST. PAUL and "Bring in the Awnings"

We love Quebec, Canada and have been there a number of times. One of our favorite places is a village called Baie St. Paul, which is in Charlesvoix, along the St. Lawrence River.

Baie St. Paul is charming and quaint, filled with galleries galore, restaurants and charming shops. It's about 40 minutes from Quebec City heading east. We stayed at an RV Park on Ile d'Orleans which is between Quebec City and Charlesvoix, but we'll tell you more about that in our "I" post.

Below are some pictures, but first, our "B" RV TIP:

TIP: Be sure to BRING IN YOUR AWNING before driving off in your RV! That may sound silly and obvious to you, but we've seen people drive off with the awning out, and you don't want to be That Guy!! This is just one step in the Incredibly Thorough and Helpful Departure Checklist that we've included in the chapter "Departing the Campground" in our book.

Now for beautiful Baie St. Paul:

Most of the homes, cottages, stores and galleries in Baie St. Paul look like this - with mansard roofs and sweet front porches

More art...art is everywhere in Baie St. Paul!


  1. Ahhh, the first time I drove off with my RV I knew I clipped a tree. When it was time to bring OUT the awning, I had my own forest. LOL! I have a check list now to keep me in check :) What beautiful paintings here!

    As I See It Daily
