Where are we?

Monday, September 6, 2021

We start the week with a photo of Natasha.

We left Walmart pretty early (for us) because we drive through Montreal on Autoroute 40. Why do we use the 40 and not the 30? Simply because at the interchange of the 30 and the 10, it is blocked because of construction.

The new REM. It will help alleviate traffic in Montreal. The roads in Montreal are terrible. Normal for Montreal.

At Trois-Rivières, we leave the 40 behind us, cross the St-Lawrence River to the 20 and head towards Quebec City.

I asked Patrice which roads he takes to go home from Montreal.
I decide to follow the same roads. We leave the 20 and go south towards Princeville, Thetford Mines and St-Benoit-Labre.

The scenery is beautiful. But! The roads are just plain terrible if you drive a MH like ours. I have to slow down to 20 km/h at times. Everything in the cupboards has shifted and is rattling. Not good!

With this, I have to make a correction. The roads in Manitoba are not that bad after all. We will take the main highway, Autoroute 73, to Quebec City on our way back.

We arrive at Manon and Patrice's place shortly after lunch. We are very happy to see them.

A little tour of the place...

They have a big yard.

And a big garden.


The view from the house.

Patrice and I went for a walk with Flick.

An easy day, doing nothing. Well, maybe a little. Like cooking chicken.

It is harvest time.

Some relaxing time in the spa.

We ended the afternoon with a campfire.

Manon is working today. We went to the cheese factory in Lac-Mégantic to buy some cheese curds.

The cheese factory La Chaudière is a reference to the river that flows in the area. Chaudière means cauldron.

And going back home to St-Benoit-Labre.

Most of the afternoon was spent watching tennis, the Canadian players.

Natasha is with her dad, eating pancakes.

Catherine is here for the day. She helps us with some of the stuff we need to do, like the oil change for her car.

We cover the shelter for the boat. Move stuff around for the winter.

We do playtime too.

We have a fish feast for supper. Walleye on the left and pike on the right.

As usual, we play cards after supper.

Michele and I are out looking for yard sales.
The Chaudière River.

The village of Saint-Martin.

In the history of Quebec, every village had to have the biggest or the prettiest church in the region.

In this region of Quebec, it either goes up the mountain or down the mountain.

More photos of Natasha...

Until next time.

Life is good...
