La Martre & Ste Anne des Monts, QC

August 14, 2019

As I approached La Martre from the east I could see a red lighthouse out next to the Gulf.





Once I got up to where the lighthouse was I saw that there was a small pull off area with a miniature lighthouse for kids to play on and a small shelter.


There were two bicycles propped up against the shelter but no one in sight.  When I got out of the car to walk up the gravel road and get a photo of the lighthouse up on the hill a head popped up from inside the shelter.  A young lady was cooking something on a portable camping stove down on the ground inside the shelter (it had been getting increasingly windy as the day progressed).  Turns out her friend was out by the water admiring the view.  They had ridden a train (with their bikes) from west of Toronto and were on a several day-long bike ride.  Fortunately they were riding east so the wind was behind them but they were still tired and were taking a break and she was cooking breakfast.

I drove further up the highway and there was a small overlook with some covered picnic areas and up on the hill an area to look down on a harbor a short distance away as well as out over the St. Lawrence River.


Up on top of the small hill there were some wooden “sculptures,” the most interesting of which was a man riding some kind of flying machine.  There were two older couples there when I arrived taking pictures near the sculpture so I walked past it to examine what was beyond it.  The two men were taking pictures of the two ladies who were standing on either side of the sculpture and they were laughing up a storm.  When I walked past it I realized why and I said something to the effect that “I hope you young ladies are behaving yourselves…”.

From behind he was riding a propeller-driven craft.


But from the front there was a very large “protrusion” extending out from between his legs.  (Unfortunately his left leg was missing but the effect was still the same).



They were cackling like little schoolgirls and it was fun to see them having a good time.

Further up the road there was a tiny little town and I saw this sign hanging out in front of an establishment.


In Canada restaurants make a big deal about saying they are “licensed” on their signage.

Looks to me like this is a licensed cocaine dealer cleverly disguised as a small convenience store.
