Je veux prendre une minute aujourd’hui pour souhaiter une Bonne Fête de la St-Jean Baptiste à tous mes amis québécois et québécoises!
For those of you who do not know, I grew up in Quebec in a small town located about 40 miles from Montreal. Back then it was called Tracy. A few years ago, it merged with the town next door to become Sorel-Tracy.
Tracy is located at the intersection of the St. Lawrence River and the Richelieu River. Sorel is on the opposite bank of the Richelieu. Tracy is known as the Steel Capital and there are several large plants along the river in the area. Sorel once was an important port and had a thriving ship building industry during the second world war.
These are a couple of pictures I took last summer while we were in Tracy visiting family.
