We love visiting places "slightly" off season. Last April and May, we traveled to the Maritimes, ending our journey in Quebec City in early May, well before the onrush of tourists for the summer. We had an excellent time there with our friend, The Interpreter, and so we decided to return during the university's February break. We timed it just so we would miss all the visitors for Carnival. Again we had a wonderful time. Here are some photos (all taken on my iPhone and hence not all that great) from our visit.
