quebec: Woodpecker Wednesday??? Seeing Red in Montreal, Quebec - 08/10/11 02:46 PM
Bon mercredi de Montréal, Québec!  Happy Wednesday from Montreal, Quebec!
Last Wednesday, I was astonished to see the following scene in Montreal and in the backyard!
 
For those that regularly visited my blog during my days in Montana, I have created a group called Moose Monday on ActiveRain where photos of moose were featured and shared on Mondays.  I have actually made a few Moose Monday posts from Montreal.  Now, with the latest sighting, how about a group called Woodpecker Wednesday?  Just kidding, Wordless Wednesday is sufficient enough! But it does sound fun and it would be interesting to see and know where else in … (29 comments)

Moose Monday - The Hungry Moose in Saint-Sauveur, Quebec 
After heading to Saint-Sauveur to grab a bite to eat prior to returning to Montreal from our getwaway in Val David (Feels Like Montana in Val David, Quebec), I ran across some interesting moose...

 This was my first moose with fork sighting!  :)
As I mentioned this restaurant was … (22 comments)

Feels Like Montana in Val David, Quebec
I was lucky to get to spend 4 days of the first week of 2011 with my brother and nieces in the beautiful Laurentians (North of Montreal).   We rented a chalet by the lake at Val David, a beautiful quaint town that reminded me of the peaceful winter setting also found in Montana.
Here are some of the photos I took to share with you.

The chalet with lots of amenities including sauna and hot tub (also included was a snowman!).

Moose Monday - Moose Vision from Saint-Adele, Quebec
The following photo was taken on the grounds of the Hotel Le Chantecler.
 
 
Le Chantecler is a very good ski resort in the winter time.   The Hotel Le Chantecler is great for the apres-ski and it is also a very good spot to have brunch on weekends with family and friends. 
Here is a view of the Hotel Chanteclerc on a beautiful fall day (a reminder that today is the last day of fall).

Je veux juste prendre le moment de souhaiter bonne fête de la Saint Jean à tous les Québécois.
