Summer Vacation 2013: The Rest Stage

Thursday, August 29, 2013

After the crazy Iron Man, Mark was able to relax and we were able to enjoy ourselves in the beauty that is Mont-Tremblant. I think I've been there once before, but I don't remember it being so beautiful.

We stayed in this house which was nestled in off the main road surrounding Lac Mercier. We were about 200 yards from La P'tit Train Du Nord which is an old rail bed turned into the longest linear park in Canada.

At our end, the trail took us into Old Tremblant Village (which I much preferred to the new town for its quaintness) where we went to the beach and had a picnic. It was so cute because about 10 minutes into our visit to the beach a few daycares came with all of their kids around the same age as Leo wearing life jackets and one by one they trotted down to the sand and into the water.

The rest of the week was filled with boating, lounging, eating (lots of pasta and pizza for some reason!), deer spotting, biking (yes Mark biked even more!), house spying (there was a gorgeous house along the trail pictured below), local beer drinking, and gondola riding.

When it was time to leave, both Mark and I said that it was the first time that we just didn't feel ready to go home. Oh well! We'll just have to make a point of going back some day!
