Quebec 2016 - On y va LIVE - Day 2 The Mountain Of Smiles


The day started a little later - 5.30am! Breakfast was cinnamon rolls - those ones you bake from a tube!

After a discussion with DH we decided to go into Saint Donat - there was a walk round some ponds (remember those later) with lots of faune and birds apparently, plus a craft market.

On the way we stopped at Timmy's to get a pre-walk drink for the kids plus a few chocolate Timbits! It has to be said that it is far cheaper than Starbucks!



We drove the short drive to where I thought the walk started.



It was full of trees but no ponds nor birds - strange. It wasn't until later I realised we were on the wrong side of the road. Whoops! The walk was nice enough though.



The craft market was OK - not very big and nothing really we would buy! O lasted all of 30 seconds before he plopped himself down on a rock in the shade! Sensible boy.



We went to the boulangerie to see if they had anything we fancied for lunch. A pizza slice and a tomato focaccia were bought. No cakes though - nice as they looked! We thoroughly enjoyed them back at the cabin - I forgot to take pictures (again! )



After a fishing trip down to the lake (no fish caught! ) we decided we would have another attempt at a walk - this time uphill!



The destination was Mont Sourire - the mountain of smiles! It was about a kilometer uphill - so not too arduous. O was ahead (goat being his nickname as he can move very quickly over tough ground!) and it made me very happy to hear his "wow" when he got to the top (all we could see upto then were trees.)

This is what we saw:






In this one you can see the ski slopes opposite!

We stayed at the top for about 30 minutes before coming back down. The first chipmunk of the holiday was spotted as were some very tiny frogs.

We headed back to the cabin and then out again to the lake where everyone else swam and canoed and I read my kindle.

Dinner was just pasta - simple but tasty.

We are all tired after all the fresh air and early mornings so films are on and I think it will be a relatively early night!

demain!
