A Writer’s Retreat — Day Five

Took a break from our keyboards and drove to St. Sauveur, Quebec for lunch and some shopping. I took pictures with my iPhone but they didn’t turn out that great, so please enjoy this beautiful picture by Quebec pastelist Horace Champagne of St. Sauveur after a winter storm.
I enjoyed hearing French being spoken — although I was born and raised in Montreal, I’m an anglophone — and I practiced my French with the sales people in the stores, but as soon as they heard my horrible accent they switched to English. Not sure whether to be grateful or insulted, LOL.

    Was a wonderful retreat! I’m thinking we should go back next year, even though we love to try new places, but this one was just so inspiring and we haven’t really investigated ALL the little shops. 🙂

Talk to me ;)
