|Île d'Orléans bridge...|
In previous blogs, tweets, and posts I have uploaded pictures of wonderful looking strawberries. Well, yesterday we drove over the Île d'Orléans Bridge to visit the place where those strawberries are grown. Île d'Orléans is the one of first settlements of French-Canada. We stopped by a local spot to pick up some....of course many were eaten before we returned home. They are so yummy and flavorful.

We had been looking for a maple syrup pie and found one at a boulagerie/store. It was frozen and thawed in the car as continued our adventure. When we got home it was perfect. We topped our thin slices with a scoop of vanilla ice cream which was recommended by Canadian redditors. We also grabbed maple sugar candy that was in the shape of maple leaves. It was a little too dense and sweet for me, but the rest of the family loved it.
|Such a dreamy view....|
One thing that struck my heart was that the people took such pride in their homes. Most were not big but instead modest. There were lots of rv's, so you know they found time to get out and travel. There was also the obvious fact that they had a view available to them that is priceless. The pride taken in where they live is something that we have noticed is shown by most residents here.

If you are ever in the the Québec area I highly recommend visiting this island. It will give you a wonderful view of the St. Lawrence River and also offer up wonderful items to tickle your taste buds.
Til next time,
