During my web browsing I started to save interesting locations across Canada so whenever an interesting picture or story crosses my online readings I save them on Google Maps for later. One of such a saved location was just ten minutes from our current campsite at Quebec so we decided to have a look with the kids and the dog.

After parking the car and getting out the trolley and the dog we realised that there are long long stairs up and down the area. I had no time for any workout in the past two weeks so I thought climbing a few (hundred) steps with the trolley and the kid in it will do for now. The effort was absolutely worth it as we walked on the rocks of the riverbed, then climbed up to the cable bridge which is about 22 meters above the water level and moved back and forth as we walked on it. We had a sandwich lunch on a bench and suddenly our dog started to growl. We did not see any reason for a few seconds but then about 30 cms from the dog I also noticed a curious squirrel who somehow did not notice the dog at first. The kids were loving it and I tried to save them from the trauma of our dog catching and eating a sweet squirrel in front of their eyes. Then the squirrel finally realised that the crumbs of our sandwiches are protected by a laaaaarge animal so he qickly disappeared on a tree. No trauma, just fun.

After lunch and a saved squirrel we visited the power plant building which is not really open for visitors as it is a working power plant. There are two glass windows to stare down the depth where supposedly the turbines are running so Abel enjoyed seeing the technical details. Then we just walked back to the car and my workout program ended by lifting the baby trolley into the trunk.
