    There are many apple fields throughout the island. Stop at any of them to pick the apples and eat them right off the trees. You can also see how cider is made and taste it. A great experience.

    As we arrived at the eastern tip of the island, in the small village of Saint-Francois, my wife and I were getting hungry. Luckily for us, there was a very small deli located where we had stopped to take some photos and we were delighted that we were able to have a couple of submarine sandwiches made for us as we waited! The woman's English was about as good as my French so we were able to have a few laughs as we made our needs known to each other!

    Favorite Dish: I decided to have a smoked ham submarine with lots of fresh vegetables piled on while my wife went with the straight vegetarian version. It was a hot afternoon, so we followed the example of the customer that preceded us and ordered a couple of cold drinks to take away as well. Only a few minutes up the road, we found a track into a farmer's field and sat there enjoying our meal as we stared out over the channel separating Orleans from the north shore of the St. Lawrence River.

    It was only in 1935 that a bridge was finally built to connect the isolated island to the mainland of Quebec. The bridge comes ashore on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River at the location of the famous Montmorency Falls and only a few miles east of Quebec City. This photo was actually taken from the Baroness Lookout at the top of the Falls.

    While driving around the island on the Chemin Royale highway, we were confronted not only by the beautiful colours of the autumn leaves but also the brightly roofed houses. This photo was taken as we drove through a small village on the south coast. In my home province of New Brunswick, the 'Acadian' branch of early (1604) French settlers in Canada like to paint their entire houses in gay colours. It was interesting to see that things are more restrained on this front with the Quebec French!
