Summer of 2021

Now we are green coded for COVID-19. I have started to sketch in the surrounding area of Vaudreuil-Soulonges.

First stop, Soulanges Canal built from 1892-1900 to provide a safe shipping lane to avoid Cascade, Cedar and Coteau rapids. I sketched the abandoned locks at Pointe-des-Casacade. Free parking and entrance.

Then, Coteau-du- Lac, a National Historic site, a place to enjoy the history of this encampment used as portage and military station in the past. Free entrance now for 2021, picnic tables, toilettes, parking and lots of shade to rest under.
