During summer...

We are used to seeing ships and sailboats on the St. Lawrence seaway.

During winter...

You'll see snowmobilers, and ice fishing huts.

Maybe even the odd minivan...or pickup truck


Snow Kiting, what's that?

One of our regular driving routes takes us along the St. Lawrence river on Montreal's south shore.

A few years ago we began to notice these large colourful kites dancing in the cold January skies.

Curious, we decided to investigate.

So last February, on one very cold Friday afternoon, we made the 20 minute from downtown Montreal.

There's an exit off the highway which give you access to a public boat launch. This is what we saw.
