Friends of the Richelieu. A river. A passion.

"Tout cedit pays est fort uny, remply de forests, vignes & noyers. Aucuns Chrestiens n'estoient encores parvenus jusques en cedit lieu, que nous, qui eusmes assez de peine à monter le riviere à la rame. " Samuel de Champlain

"All this region is very level and full of forests, vines and butternut trees. No Christian has ever visited this land and we had all the misery of the world trying to paddle the river upstream." Samuel de Champlain

Soon, this will all change

Soon, my neighbors will change. The property will be changed. Forever.

They want to build a new house where trees now grow.

Sunlight will be able to shine on my property when those big trees are cut to make room for a house.

But some of the big old trees will be cut down and gone forever.

Life is a bunch of compromises, it seems.

you can't stop progress, they say.

And so I took these pictures back in September 2014. Because I knew what the future held. I will soon find out what it will look like.
