As the vacationing times are slowly coming to an end (or not) for some of us members, I thought it would be a good idea to share where we’ve spent
our vacations and perhaps show a little part of our lives that do bring a smile to our faces.
As members of this great website residing on all continents, this would be a great thread to show glimpses of our parts of the world scenery, parts
of our touristic likes and parts of the beauty that this small blue dot provides...
As I’ll go first, this year, my girlfriend and I went to Mont Tremblant. Roughly two hours and a half from where I reside, (South Shore of Montreal,
Quebec, Canada) Mont Tremblant is well known for its skiing facilities in the winter time. It is, nevertheless, a mountain of breathtaking scenes
comes the summer time.
We resided in the heart of the Village, making it all very special.
This is a picture from our balcony:
As we were being lifted up the mountain on sky cabins, I couldn’t resist taking a picture of the Village as it laid there in all its beauty, right
in front of us:
The mountain itself is 2871 feet high (875 meters) and the view from up there is astounding. Here is a view from the top, showing where the village
Little old me:
And finally, the other side of the mountain, in all its beauty:
This particular vacation was very special for me for different reasons. The first one is that I shared this one with my new girlfriend (going on three
months already) and the second is that I hadn’t taken a vacation out of town in years. It was both refreshing and exciting !

Oh...anecdote. While we were having lunch at a place called "The Shack", I noticed someone familiar walking in from the side door and making his way
along the wall to the bar...
"Gee...that guy sure looks like Michael Douglas..." I told my girlfriend.
As he sat at the bar, about two feet away from where our table was...
"Hmmm...it IS Michael Douglas..."
To be honest, he looked like he wanted time alone, not wanting to be disturbed. Had a drink, left, came back in about ten minutes later, sat exactly
at the same place and had three more shots.
One waitress in particular got pretty excited when she saw him and there were one customer or two that came by close to us to snap his picture on
their cell phones.
As he got up to leave, he stayed by the door as rain had started to pour badly and soon enough, the little excited waitress nervously walked up to him
to shake his hand. The place was pretty much packed but he made his way in and out almost incognito...Told my girlfriend...
"Well, personally, I would have preferred Catherine Zeta Jones..." *grin
