We left Bill and June with hugs and kisses and promises to stop by again and see some more sites. They were great hosts and we can’t wait to see them in Florid this fall. It was a nice ride through the Lake George area and no problem crossing the border. We arrived at Annette’s cousins, Marcel and Lucy’s around 2pm and after a nice lunch, the pictures came out and old times were discussed. Annette use to visit when she was a child. They would come when the maple syrup was running and drip the syrup on the snow, twirl it onto a stick and eat it. It was off to Lucy’s sister , Armande, for dinner. Her husband passed away several years ago and she has a new friend, Richard. And he is a hoot. Well, out came the wine and cheese and more wine and well you know the rest of the story. We had a nice dinner and followed that up with sugar pie. Sugar pie taste just like it sounds. When you are on vacation who counts calories!

It was a very nice visit and after a cardiac breakfast in the morning it was time to say good bye. We were off to visit Michel and Lucie. After the death defying ride through Montreal, we headed to the mountains, where the driving was a little less stressful. We arrived at Michel and Lucie around 2pm and it was great seeing them again. They have a beautiful home on the golf course. Lucie has a green thumb and there are flower all around the outside of the house. We took the tour and then decided to do a short leisurely bike ride. Off we went to this nice bike trail that was a slight uphill grade to the church. You have to ride with Michel to understand what his idea of leisurely is. The church is a place to stop for information, rest up and get some water. Then it was downhill all the way back to the car. I enjoyed that part the best. It was approximately 12 miles round trip. We ended the day with a nice fish dinner on the deck and some more wine and plans to bike or kayak tomorrow, depending on the weather.

After breakfast we decided to try our luck at kayaking. It was cloudy but no rain which made it a perfect day. What a beautiful lake. We went up one side of the lake, stopped for some snacks and then came back down the other side of the lake. It was about 7 miles round trip. The arms and shoulders are just a little sore but it was a great way to spend the day. We are resting up after our lunch and Michal and Helena are coming for dinner. It should be a fun night. It’s golf tomorrow and we are hoping our arms still work well enough to swing the club.
