Along the Way

Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (St John the Baptist Day) is a public holiday celebrated on June 24 in Quebec. It was brought to Canada by French settlers celebrating the traditional feast day of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist.

Riviere Richelieu and the park has been filled with people enjoying the 3-day weekend and great outdoors.

We stayed on the Saint Ours park wall with two other Looper boats. We are all heading to Montreal tomorrow hoping the partiers will have cleared out.
