Soon the sap will be flowing for maple syrup production in the Eastern Townships which is on the doorstep of Venise -en -Quebec. Come to visit and hike on the hilly roads.(The trails are not ready for hiking yet). My favourite places for warming up after activities are Le Greg Bistro in Venise, Cafe Rouge in Bedford, Le Cafetier in Sutton, Beat et Bettrave in Frelighsburg, and The Rendez Vous cafe in Cowansville. Enjoy the sunrises and sunsets on Lake Champlain at my cottage.
