We just got back from the country for a little R&R away from the urban jungle. We went to the Laurentians, just an hour’s drive from Montreal.
The Laurentians region, or Les Laurentides in French, is famous for its gentle rolling mountains, crystal blue lakes, meandering rivers, great resorts and quaint towns and villages that draw vacationers all year round in search of clean air and lots of ‘elbowroom’.
We stayed in a rustic little cottage without TV and Internet connection, and forgot about the bustling city for a little while. The kids loved it and the dog was in heaven.
Here are a few pics …
Our dog seemed to really appreciate being off the leash…
Kids and water go together like spaghetti and meatballs,
Lots of beautiful wildflowers everywhere!
