Da Capo -- 30th anniversary spring tour of la Petite-Nation

Singing on the steps of the Manoir Papineau behind the Chateau Montebello
Looking forward to our upcoming 40th anniversary celebration,  it made me think back to our 30th anniversary (can't believe it's almost 10 years already!) and all of the fun things we did.  I will recap them in the coming weeks up to our start of our 40th year this Fall.

Back in 2008, we did a wonderful tour of la Petite-Nation, just across the water in the Outaouais region of Québec, specifically the lovely region of Montebello.

les Mélomanes, an organization of artists from the area, hosted our tour.

Here is a page commemorating our 30th anniversary visit to la Petite-Nation in Quebec back in Spring 2008. It has more photos and specific details about our tour. Thanks to the organizers and Guy Nantel for the photos :)

Les Mélomanes treated us to a dinner at a rustic homestead farm
We had an amazing meal at a farm.
