Sugar Bush

We went to a sugar shack near Ste.-Eustache the other day, a wonderful experience. There was breakfast — thick smoky pea soup with lots of bread, accompanied by creton, then followed by a souffled omelette, ham, sausages with maple syrup, and then sugar pie. We met Manon’s parents Gerard and Nicole there and sat with hundreds of others in a big noisy room and it was lots of fun. The man next to John kept showing him pictures of his workplace where he made thick wire used for construction and his son said with a smile that he didn’t think we had maples in B.C. Of course we do! The bigleaf maple! And people even make maple syrup from its sap, a long process, and there is even a festival of bigleaf maple syrup near Duncan in February. But you never see this:
