Winter: If you can’t beat’em, join’em!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but winter is just around the corner. My husband thinks this is fantastic news indeed and has already equipped the kids with snowsuits and good hats and mitts.

You might recall that I, on the other hand, am not quite as fond of winter. In fact, I spent most of last winter trying not to hate it. And although I still don’t love it, to say the least, I did find that joining in some winter activities really did help me learn to hate it a whole lot less.

So whether you love it or hate it, it’s on its way. And as they say, if you can’t beat’em, join’em!

In this spirit, I’ve got a post to share with you on winter in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region. It outlines all the details you need to have an amazing winter experience — complete with staying overnight in a village that comes to life each winter right on the lake itself. Yes, a village built entirely on the lake! I tell ya, these people love their winter.

After you’ve enjoyed a fresh buffet style brunch of croissants, Belgian waffles, fresh fruit and local jams at the Cap au Leste restaurant, waddle yourself on over to a dog-sledding adventure! Your children will shriek with exhilaration as they are pulled through the snow by beautiful sled dogs.”
