Táta’s first week

Wow! It’s already been one week since we picked up Táta from the airport. And what a great week it’s been. Our cats took the week to get adjusted, but they have quickly got back into their routine. As for Táta, she is right at home! She enjoys her walks and naps on the couch the most. We love this Icelandic Sheepdog so much already — feels like she’s been here forever.

Lunch in Terrebonne, Quebec

A random road trip adventure – that’s what we did this weekend when we ate lunch in a small village just north of Montreal called Terrebonne, Quebec.

To be honest, it wasn’t totally random. We had to make a stop in Montreal to pick up something, so while we were there, we explored the suburb — which I found out about while researching nearby, pretty cities.

Our first stop – smoked meat sandwiches …. we picked a local, small restaurant called BYGS. Can I just say it was delightful!

And of course, we explored the Ile des Moulins – various mills dating back to as far as the mid 1700s. The area has been designated a historic site but the Government of Quebec. And according to Wikipedia, “Four years following the construction of the flour mill that is currently standing at the Île-des-moulins to this day, the Moulin neuf (New Mill) was built in 1850. In addition, around the same time in 1850, the seigniory office was established.”

One more site we checked out was the church in town – Paroisse Saint Louis, constructed in 1877.
