July 2018



We traveled to Magog, Québec, with friends Ellen and Larry, and stayed three nights in a small B&B, Amour et Amitié, run by two delightful and interesting men. Magog is a small city (population, about 25,000) in the Eastern Townships. Located on the large Lake Memphremagog and a stop along Quebec’s bicycle Route Verte, it is a Canadian tourist destination, with excellent restaurants and friendly inhabitants. We were in town for the Circuit des Arts and enjoyed visiting the group exhibit at Magog’s Visual Arts Center as well as a few of the studios of the individual artists around the town. Our first day we bicycled a small portion of the Route Verte near Magog, but were defeated by the heat and hills. L’Estriade, from Waterloo to Granby, was much easier: flat and enhanced by sculptures along the route. We also walked on Magog’s Marais (Marsh) path.
