Over the holidays, we've been fortunate enough to explore areas of Quebec, which we normally wouldn't venture, and it's been a great experience thus far. There is an small town on the south shore just east of Montréal called Boucherville, which has an impressive number of older victorian'esque style houses and small streets. There is a coffee shop/bistro/boutique in a small square called Saint Laurent Café Boutique which houses a small, cozy yet very spacious space with high ceilings and a wood burning fire place. I left the house with a dead camera battery which wasn't the best but managed to fire of some shots before it died.
This will be the second year in a row I haven't been back home to PEI for the holidays but this is also the second year i've spent christmas in Quebec and been fortunate enough to spend it with my 2nd family. We woke up today on Xmas eve and decided to go for a quick coffee run to this new coffee boutique in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu called Autour de la Table which we've been meaning to come to for awhile now. We brought a superb Brennan Michael candle with us and lit that thing off and had a great chat with the owner. We had a last minute stop to the grocery store to grab our xmas eve dinner ingredients which we'll have some photos up from that up on the blog soon. Happy Holidays Folks!
