This is part 3 of my Kamouraska painting trip travelogue. We had a very productive trip, possibly because we had no expectations but to have fun and to enjoy the painting time outside in this beautiful part of Kanada.

Today, we had another great day, even if the weather was not as sunny and warm as we had expected. It started out very promising but around lunchtime the sun suddenly disappeared and only came back by the time we had to get back to the house so I could prepare dinner.

This morning, Janis, Hélène, and I drove to St-André where we took the road past the school up the Monadnock. We found a great space where we were partly sheltered from the wind, and stayed there the whole day. Later Sharon and Bill joined us by chance. All five of us were painting the humongous rocks in front of us and all of us ladies also painted the view down the road where a maple had turned red.
For dinner, I prepared a vegetable pasta casserole which entailed a lot of cutting vegetables. As dessert, I offered the wonderful strawberry-rhubarb pie that I had brought from the Black Walnut Bakery in Cumberland. I would not have had enough time to prepare the dessert myself.
Tonight, Bill is playing the guitar for us, and the rest of us is taking it easy with puzzles and reading. After finishing my travelogue, I will continue to felt the water lily I am working on.
It is hard to believe that the first half of our trip is already behind us. Time really flies when you are having fun!
