The Dinner

We walked into what we thought was a pub but were soon to discover it was probably the most expensive restaurant in town. Screw it, we had been eating Mc DOnalds and Tims for days and decided to splurge on some fine french cuisine. We drank a few too many beverages and had some real laughs as we read Jenna's rr about finding a creek to sleep near so she could clean up. The contrast between here voyage and where we were sitting was huge and made for some guilty laughs. I am not known as a very refined person but Sean and I did our best to fit in with the crowd and between laughing fits and having folks stare at the two "dirt bags" taking pictures of their food I think we pulled it off, well we didnt stick out too bad....alright we didnt fit in but I bet we had more fun than anyone else n the establishment

First up were some local beers






Next on the menu was a nice seafood pate made with locally caught fish






Next up was a locally grown organic salad followed by a cheese platter. The cheeses were each from a different region in Quebec and the hostess gave us a run down on each one. The brie from the Charelvoix region was a winner with a nice oak taste and a lively spring to it






Beers turned to whiskey and I always appreciate my ginger in a seperate glass






The main course was a wonderfully prepared sirloin with a bourgois sauce that was made locally. An amazing piece of meat






The vegetable platter made with veggies grown "out back" was a delight to the senses





Whiskey turned to doubles of Amaretto on ice





A nice truffle cake was had for desert, this was followed by Sean explaining, between laughing fits, how to properly drink coffee in this atmoshpere. You'll notice the correct method of raising the pinky finger





"The Dinner" had more laughs than I have had in a long time and other than the insane bill at the end was a very memorable experience. Maybe some day I'll grow up and mature and live like this on a full time basis...ya probably not but it sure was nice to see how the other half live






The view from our table





Still laughing we made our way to some tourist shops to grab trinckets for our families










Back to the campsite, another glass of vino and what not and called it a day
