Apple picking trip


Yesterday, my girlfriend and I were invited to my Boss house in Pointe Claire, West Island. It is a traditionally English speaking area but more and more French speakers come there. It Must be because it is quiet and cozy.

Anyway, the most important part of the day was spent outside of Montreal, near the Oka village where we went to pick apples.
Oka was the scene of a violent indian protest 15years ago which saw one policeman killed, so it was a bit creepy.
My first taste of Quebec countryside was good. As good as it can be in a fresh, rainy afternoon. We picked apples and we ate so many apples that we didn’t eat our picnic.
We also brought back a bag full of Apples, which leads me to think: “What can I do of a bag with 100 apples since we are 2 and don’t eat that much fruits?”

Anyone wanting some fresh apples may come to Rosemont area. We will be more than happy to share (or get rid of) them.

Even if we didn’t really needed all these apples, we found it to be quite nice with all the grandeur of the Quebec countryside. Trees were the colors of autumn. Apples and pumpkins were everywhere (didn’t know there was as much in the whole world) and the Saint Laurent was incredibly beautiful.
Well I recommend you go to pick some apples some day. Even though the idea sounds stupid to a French (Going to the supermarket looks easier), it provides well enough entertainment.
