Human and curious, I like discovering new things, but I have my classics! I have Shawi tattooed on my heart. I love hiking, kayaking and paddle boarding, 5 to 7, and above all, sharing my discoveries and favorites!

Picnic in Shawi

I stock up with salads, cheeses, bread and deli at Tous les jours dimanche, at the Marché public de Shawinigan and at Boucherie Nobert or I go to one of the Roulottes Beauparlant for some fast food. I enjoy my picnic in one of our many beautiful parks. My favorite parks are Parc de l’Île Melville – secteur des Chutes, Parc Saint-Maurice, the riverside in St-Jean-des-Piles or downtown. Pssst! I love the Olivia, a new restaurant in St-Jean-des-Piles, where we can also buy food to go!

Parc de l’Île Melville – Secteur des chutes

When the falls are flowing at full capacity, mostly during the spring or in the fall, I bring friends and family to impress them 😉

La Mauricie National Park – Lac du Caribou

Lac du Caribou’s beaches are my favorites. I like to lounge on one of the large fine white sand beaches of Lac du Caribou. Pssst! They are accessible by waterway.

Trou du diable – Microbrewery

When it’s raining between July and October, I recommend taking the microbrewery tour. You’d even be able to enjoy a bit of shopping in their boutique afterwards.

Sunsets in Shawi

Simply admiring the superb sunsets in Shawinigan. The best is to eat an ice cream on the Promenade du Saint-Maurice while admiring the sun go down behind the Cité de l’énergie.
