Boats ashore for the winter on Île d’Orléans


These dry-docked boats sit on the snowbank at the Parc maritime de Saint-Laurent on Île d’Orléans with an icy view of the St. Lawrence river. A winter tour of the island in a warm car is a delight for eyes but don’t expect many businesses (that cater to summer tourism) to be open, apart from the Chocolaterie in Sainte-Petronille and a few others.
