Introducing Magog

Magog, Quebec, a two-hour drive east from Montreal.

Looking at the row of shops in the center of town, you wouldn't guess that the population is only around 25,000.

It seems to be an area full of vacation homes, both in summer and winter. There is a beautiful lake so long that it extends beyond the US-Canada border and into Vermont, with rows of pretty little houses along the channel.  

Pretty little church that gleams as if it's been painted silver.

The local supermarket (a Metro, a supermarket chain found in Ontario and Quebec) also stocks Magog-made products.

Is the phone box a time machine?

Summer was at  the end stage, but the flowers were still in bloom and overflowing.
