Quebec 2016 - On y va LIVE - Day 20 - Walking And Tubing - Again!


The day started a little overcast!

We had the usual breakfast - trying to use up all the food as in Montreal we are in a hotel!



After a leisurely start to the day, we headed into town. The plan was a coffee stop at Tim Hortons then onto le Parc des Chutes again to do the trails we didn't do on Monday.

This wad my $1 iced coffee. Has to be said that it is far cheaper in Tim's than in Starbuck's!



As we were later arriving at the Parc it was a bit busier than earlier in the week.



We came across this tiny frog - we have seen a lot of these this holiday.



I live the noise a waterfall makes!



We had looked at the possible eating out options before leaving the house and chose "Le Boke"

DH had a brie and pear compote toastie with salad.



The kids both had the salmon burger and fries. Both declared it delicious.



I had a tuna wrap and fries which was also yummy.



I mentioned the sawdust mountain the other day. DH researched it and it seems that the local industry is paper making - for food packaging mainly. The sawdust is their raw product. The smell in the town can be quite off putting! Thankfully our house is far away!



We decided to spend the afternoon at the house.

First activity was fishing!



Then a lot of rapid riding. The kids and DH walked up the road to make for a longer ride. It was apparently faster too!

Time was also spent in the hot tub!



Eventually we had dinner - a clear out of the fridge plus smores made on the microwave - DD loved how they expanded!



I was well behaved and didn't partake tonight.

I did lots of washing, drying and packing so there isn't much to do tomorrow!

What a lovely day, relaxing and fun. I'm loving the smores - never had them so that's on the list of foods to try.

Another lovely relaxing day. Will you be sad to leave? Montreal will be very different to here. Thanks for sharing.

Moving on again. Mind you, I've read so many (lovely) days together it seems even sooner!

The sawdust mountain is amazing - glad you were far enough away from the ...aroma, though!

Another day of delicious-looking food, river rapids, and lovely countryside.

We only ever make them on holiday! Walmart does Smores kits. It should be chocolate but we use nutella!

I don't make chips at home (can't stand the smell ) so having them out is a treat!

Montreal was certainly different! We still managed to mess around in a lake

The days here did go quickly but we only had 5 nights!

We are all suffering withdrawal symptoms though!
