Overlooking the Terrasse Dufferin

I fully expected to see a monument to French explorer Samuel de Champlain while strolling along the Terrasse Dufferin in the heart of Old Quebec. Known as the “Father of New France”, Champlain was the founder of Quebec City, along with several other colonies along the St. Lawrence River.

What I did not expect to see, was an elephant… Salvador Dali’s $3.6 million “Space Elephant” is on exhibit for two-years.
