Quebec 2016 - On y va LIVE - Day 18 - Walks And Lac Edouard


After a good night's sleep, we had a leisurely start to the day. Bagels and coffee/juice were the breakfast offerings!



DH cleared the fire pit so we could have a fire tonight.



Then some trips down the rapids on the rubber rings. DD was definitely at an advantage being lighter.



My wildlife spot of the day! He didn't move very much.



We then went for a walk from the bottom of the ski station in La Tuque. You couldn't see much!



Though lots of different mushrooms.



At last a view over La Tuque. The weather was starting to get cloudier. It isn't the prettiest of towns - quite a lot of industry (wood being the primary one). It is the only town for over one hundred kilometres.



We realised after over 90 minutes pf walking that we weren't even a third of the way round (the map said 1h45 but that was obviously Olympic free-fell runners) and that time was ticking on. We didn't have DD's insulin with us either. We spotted a quick route down that conveniently led to Tim Hortons so we took that option. Drinks were had all round.

We then walked back on the cycle path - still took 30 minutes.



After lunch back at the house we head out to Lac Edouard which seemed to be highly recommended in the comments in the guest book. Finding info online or at the tourist info office was not so easy. A copy of this map would have been useful



DH said the drive was actually challenging even though it didn't look like it! The roads were undulating - they would bend and undulate at the same time - there were a few times when our stomachs went



We found the beach - it was deserted. To get there we went through the grounds of a derelict sanatorium. The kids were disappointed that there was no inflatable! However, we made our own fun.



Lots of messing around - as usual!



We made our way back to the house - past a mix of goats, llamas and a horse.

It started to rain as we came back- so we settled in for an Olympic fest coupled with a trip out to the hot tub.

It has been a relaxing day - lots of laughter!

Riding the rapids looks fun! I love how you mention your breakfast every day - I am such a foodie! My boys would just love this holiday - so much exploring and stuff. Am going to run it past my soon to be 18 year old and see if he is tempted...!

What a lovely day, with a good walk and some fun in the water. Time in the hot tub is a perfect way to end the day.

Canada is such a wonderful place to visit - I can highly recommend it!
