Quebec - Riding Like a Local - Day 5

guest services deskAfter my sightseeing tour at La Ferme it was time to head to L’estampilles Auberge just outside of Baie-Saint-Paul.

The inn has a long history that goes back to the 1739’s when a residence was built on the location where the inn now stands.  That residence went through many transformations, in the 1940’s it was a general store, in 1970 it became a restaurant, in 1993 it became an Auberge called La Corbiere, and in 1197 a lodge was added to the facility.

Sturgis Trip 2013 545Celebrating the 110th Anniversary of Harley-Davidson

Last summer, this 48-year-old public servant bid farewell to his wife and two daughters, then embarked on an 18-day round trip out west with two of my closest friends, Bill and Glen. By the time we returned back to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to celebrate the 110th anniversary of Harley-Davidson Co; we had travelled over 5500 kms, seen Mount Rushmore, the lonesome prairies, fought 60 km/hr cross winds, rode in extreme heat, suffered back problems, consumed excessively and were now about to party alongside tens of thousands of other motorcycle enthusiasts at the 110th.

AllegroFrancois introduced me to Christelle and Stéphane, the owners who are originally from France and are riders.

Stéphane and I talked a bit as he showed me around the B& B. Once I was safely ensconced, Francois headed off to change for dinner.

We went to the Allegro Italian restaurant for dinner and had a fabulous chat about motorcycling and tourism.  I have eaten at this restaurant during a previous visit to the region and while the food was wonderful, the service on this night was rather disappointing.  It seemed like the gal who seated us forgot to tell our very busy waiter that she had brought us to his section. We were on the verge of leaving when he came by and realized we had not been served. It happens, even in the best of establishments.

David PocockTouring / travelling / camping season is coming!!  Are you ready?  What do you take with you to eat, how do you cook it?  How much and what to pack, has always got to be weighed against concerns of how much space we have and the kinds of facilities we will be using.  If you’re going to be using motels, then packing food might be limited to snack foods for the occasional rest stop. If you are going to be camping, then decide how much and what you carry, based on where you will camp and if there are known facilities for buying food or other supplies.

 The 8.5-mile-long bridge system skips across four of the Thousand Islands that choke the headwaters of the St. Lawrence River. New York now lies behind and the beautiful Thousand Islands Parkway leads west along the northern shore of the river to Gananoque and Route 2 takes me the last few miles to Kingston, Ontario.
