In planning our sojourn to Quebec, specifically Montreal I did a really stupid thing. I relied on the description of the area that Louise Penny uses in her Inspector Gamache series. She describes the small hamlet of Three Pines as though it's part of the Eastern Townships of Quebec and very close to Montreal. So I expected that the AirBnB I booked outside of Montreal in the suburb town of Beloeil to be a hop, skip and a jump to the Eastern Townships. NOT! When I realized that I scrapped any plans for us to visit those little communities and focused on Montreal instead.
Here are a smattering of photos from Montreal. The weather was grey the whole time we were there.
