"Auberge l'lle Flottante"
5" x 7" watercolor sketch
We are staying on the island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River near Quebec City, Ile de Orleans in the tiny town of St. Laurent. Tony and Genevieve are the best hosts, live on site with their family, and have five charming rooms for rent. We are staying in Muguet, named after the Lily of the Valley wildflower. This is the sweet view of the dormer. The walls are a pale green paint on wood and feature a painting of its namesake. The window opens to the river, where there is a lovely patio. I apologize for the slightly askew photo.
We had a lovely day of sunshine and weather in the 70s, a perfect day for a 25-mile bicycle ride on the island. At one point we climbed over the island to the northern side and had lunch. Today we have showers, so we will be exploring by rental car.
