Thursday Doors

The road was like a ribbon hugging the landscape .. the river on one side and the base of the Laurentians off to the North… It was breathtaking, I often wanted to stop, but due to the narrow old highway, with only the two lanes.. it was impossible, the solid no passing lines were very prominent. When I did dare stop, it was with emergency flashers and a quick scuttle out of the car .. off to the side of the road, and then back in to move out of the way of the endless parade of cars and trucks.

The clear sky held out for me.. the forecast had called for clouds, but Mother Nature was generous with her sunny disposition. Click on the pictures to get a better view of the scenery. =^_^=… The array of fall colour is well on its way… especially when I was well into the Laurentian tourist areas.

Good or Bad it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.

    I love those pictures.

  2. Fantastic gallery of photos

  3. Beautiful habitat! It looks sometimes ago these places were full of life but nowadays they are empty, there is no people around and that make impression of dead environment. Say, I am mistaken, please.

    • yes and no… I want to say I saw a lot of acitivity, and I did, but it was in pockets, there were a lot of VENDU signs, especially in the areas that had waterfront or were in what would be cottage country in the summer. The ice fishing huts were all waiting stacked up along the road where there is ice fishing in winter but I couldn’t stop at that location to get pictures. Many of the older farms as you say, looked like they were not in full “functioning” mode, but it could be the time of day I was passing.. 148 is the former “main hwy” to Monreal, now there are the main super highways…. It is I’m afraid the sign of the times. You and I who have memories of what was.. are very lucky.

      • Actually, you are right – we are lucky, we’ve seen different life which was more comfortable in human relations.
        I love to travel with my wife in rural areas where people still easy going and open to talk. We can find a lot of hidden quiet beautiful places just to walk around, to talk, to have simple but lovely lunch and refresh our memories, when we were young and happy.

    • you have the right attitude.. keep it going!! waves good morning..

  4. I’m glad you were finally able to stop and take photos of these great buildings. Thanks for sharing them. My favorites are the two shots of the business with the seating area and all the flowers. Not sure what the business is, but what a beauty.
