'Le Centre National...
Favorite thing: VISIT 'Le Centre National D'exposition JACOB (built in 1940) 'Dudley The Dragon'. Marionettes and puppets. The exposition is called ( Strings springs and finger things) from the collection of the Ontario Puppetry association, on loan to this museum. In other rooms were paintings by CANADIAN ARTISTS.
Fondest memory: The great view from here of JONQUIERE as we were near the mountain top. We were unable to go to the summit as the road was under repair.
VISIT 'RIVIERE DES SABLES'...
Favorite thing: VISIT 'RIVIERE DES SABLES' WHERE THE FLOOD ALSO DID A LOT OF DAMAGE WHICH HAS BEEN REPAIRED BY BUILDING A PARK ALL ALONG THE RIVER.Aug 15, 2000. First picture is at the main entrance to the Riviere Des Sables-- a park along the river front dedicated to all the 'French Nations' in the World with commemorative cards and a 'FLAG' of each on the light poles all along the bike path and walk way.
There is a pavilion with restaurant and boutiques, an aluminum bridge ( which is a rare item ) for bikes and foot travel only. This is lighted up at night and is great to see.
There are flowers all along the walking and Bike paths and the river banks were being cleaned and flowers etc. planted along the banks. You can also rent paddle boats etc.
A very delightful restful place in the sun. See Photos that follow
