Day Tripping : Sault-au-Récollet and île de la Visitation

Day trip in the city

Sault-au-Récollet is a little spot near the edge of the Montreal island, I found out about this little area back in the Winter when I shot this outfit post. Since then Stéphane rode his bike past this lovely place a few times and told me about it, so Sunday we went on a mini day trip on our bikes.

On the way there on the boulevard Gouin where the cycle path leads you there are cute little old houses, some from the 20s inspired by the "Pensylvania look" and some really old homes that date back 300 years. I was fascinated right away with this magical little time capsule that is only a bike ride away from were I live. We visited a little house that was used for making cider from 1806 to 1841 and then became a home for 1848 to 1978. They had a few interesting artifacts to look at and gave us a little map with information on the area and the history.

My favorite spot was this one, it looks like a beach from afar but is really rocky. The view was amazing we got to hang out with some ducks and seagulls and snap a few pictures.

This is "La maison du pressoir" the cider making house, I really liked the community garden right next to it but it was not open to the public.
