What a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday! My brother-in-law Milt, took us to Pointe-du-Moulin Park for the afternoon. There is a functional windmill located by the water and interpreters will explain all the workings. Fresh bread was baking in the millers house not far away so we purchased some to take home. Gene thoroughly enjoyed having a turn at the archery range located in the historic park. The breathtaking view of the Saint-Lawrence river and the Saint-Louis lake was dotted with people kayaking, canoeing and all sorts of water fowl. As we walked the shaded paths it looked as if there were large snow flakes floating to the earth because there was so much fluff from the cottonwood trees.
It was time for supper and so we drove to Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue and had supper on the patio at Peter's Cape Cod Restaurant. We watched the boats coming and going through the Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue canal. I was stuffed after eating a salad and a mound of mussels but still found enough room for my birthday dessert. The waiters served me a piece of cake with a sparkler in it and sang happy birthday. It was a fabulous birthday.
