Québec and the Lake Champlain Islands


It is hard to believe it has been three weeks since my mother and I took our journey to Vermont. One of the days we took a road trip through the Lake Champlain Islands to Québec.

We visited the little French Canadian town of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and had a very French Canadian lunch. So French Canadian, in fact, that no one at the restaurant spoke English and the menu was entirely in French.

We navigated our way through the menu since we know words like brie, bèchamel, and crêpes, and had a delightful lunch.

Sometimes getting out of one’s comfort zone, even if it is only for lunch, feels oh-so-good.

After lunch, we hopped in our rental car and headed back to Vermont. It was a fun little journey and now I can say I have actually been to Canada, despite living only a couple hours south of the Canadian border for a while right after college.

Au revoir, Québec.
