Two weeks ago, my family and I traveled to the lovely town of Trois-Pistoles for my grandparent’s sixtieth wedding anniversary celebrations. We all gathered in a charming cottage that my grandparents have been renting twice a year for the last decade.
My grandparents have developed a longstanding love story with this area, having met in the nearby town of Notre-dame du Portage 66 years ago. They’ve been entranced ever since, and with each visit they fall more and more in love with the scenery, the fascinating history and the friendly population. We’ve all heard about it endlessly, so it went without question that this was the perfect place to hold the party when the location of the anniversary was to be decided.
From Montreal, Trois Pistoles is a five hour drive eastward. In the right season (May to October), it’s a top spot for whale-watching on the Saint-Lawrence river.
Here are some more pictures of the area:
