After getting up, we
boarded our buss and headed north-east to the resort at Montebello.
After spending the night, we will be on our way to Montreal.
On our way, we stopped at
a sugar shack, and this one was great. We had a quick
tour of the maple boil down and the local bakery and then we went in
for lunch. With lunch, we had good food, fresh
bread, crepes with lots of maple syrup, and a fiddling duet
that entertained us well. Following lunch we continued on the
the lodge and we enjoyed the facilities there.
The gentleman with the white beard
was the sugar shack owner, and chief maple syrup maker.

While we ate, these two played, we sang,
many danced and had a merry time.
