From Boston to the Laurentians

En route through the harvest of colours from New England to Quebec. Numerous stops necessary to be gobsmacked by the beauty of the land at harvest time.


Many bowls of roasted squash soup and apple pie later, we arrived at Lac des Chats near St. Sauveur. We celebrate the last glorious days of fall at the lake with family raking leaves and canoeing.

This is Lovers Park in Val-David, 80 k north of Montreal and half-way between St. Sauveur and Mont Tremblant.  They self-describe as “au coeur du village et de la culture’.  It’s true.

This small town is home to many fine arts and crafts practitioners.  In particular is the artist run contemporary printmaking centre, L’Atelier de L’Ile, which I visited and is featured in my next post.

Quebec seems to particularly value its artists.  This town, and the printmaking centre, is a case in point.
