Jun 11, 2018 - Sherbrooke Que

June 9th We cross over into Quebec by mid-morning and thank goodness the Travel Information Center is open and has lots of resources as this is one Province we did not even have a good road map for before we left home. We are back travelling on secondary roads and are happy to be here. We have crossed the St Lawrence River to the south shore and are following the Circuit du Paysan which is a local guide of the farm stands, cheese manufacturers, wineries and cideries and gourmet boutiques in the area. We are excited to use the guide as a way...

May 4, 2011 - Rainy Quebec

We left Cardinal and headed east into Quebec province. It was a horrible day with torrential rain. We found ourselves taking the directions given by the campground and found ourselves travelling a narrow road(Good practice for when we are back in the UK!). We arrived at the campground safely but found that two of our basement cabinets had water in them again! Good job we had got Tiffin to agree to extend their full warranty for another year!

Aug 25, 2009 - Compton, Quebec & Visit to Vermont & New Hampshire

We've arrived for a three-night stay in Compton, Quebec. It's a time for some much-needed r&r [yeah, even RVers need a break from all the hustle & bustle of travelling/visiting/eating/sleeping!] - there's laundry to do....& we finally have the internet here, so need to get caught up on this journaling, which was all Wally's idea in the first place.... but guess who gets to do all the entering?! So, bear with me/us, as this is a new adventure in many ways. We are having a spectacularly wonderful time - the weather's been great for the most...

Dec 27, 2008 - Christmas in Canada

Christmas in Canada. After the heat of KL, arriving back to a freezing Quebec was quite a shock to the system. After two days we had a great snow storm, with close to 10 inches of snow falling - see the attached photo of clearing the car. After a few days in Sherbrooke we drove to the small village of Piopolis for Christmas day at the family cottage. As the attached photos show, the lake and surrounding scenery are quite stunning. The small village of Piopolis lies on Lac Megantic in the Eastern Townships, very close to the Maine border. It...

Jun 29, 2006 - Magog, PC, Canada

6/29/06 Thursday Left Stonybrook Recreation in Hanover, ME at 9 this morning. Took Rte. 26 up into and across NH, and then 3 and 141 across into Quebec. Very pleasurable border crossing, although Nizhoni really expressed her doubts about the border guard (who like her very much in spite of the rude reception.) Took a wrong exit off 55 and ended up touring rural Quebec, through Sherbrooke and back to 55/10 where we finally got to Magog and the Domaine Parc-Estrie, where we had reservations. Site is good (although a bit of a slant), and park...

Apr 27, 2006 - Eastern Townships

April 27-29 - We always have a good time with Patsy and Wally, and this visit was no exception. There was an element of sadness, though, as we had heard that one of our oldest friends had died only days before we came. We were glad we were able to spend some time with Ken and John who are coping well so far. During our time with Wally and Patsy we managed to survive the really cold spring temperatures (the bird bath was solid ice), the furnace keeping the motorhome cozy. By Saturday it had warmed up somewhat and the sun was out. Wally and...

Aug 10, 2005 - Compton The English Townships

We explored the area called the Eastern Townships of Quebec. This is a lovely rural area. We visited the Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook. The park located in Coaticock and has a deep gorge 50 meters deep. There is a foot suspension bridge that links two sides of the gorge. It spans the void for 169 meters and according to the Guinness book of records is the longest foot suspension bridge in the world. The park is also an old mill site. We also visited the town of Magog and found some great trails in forests and marshlands. Our stay there was...
