Winding road, Ile d'Orleans

He who chooses the beginning of a road chooses the place it leads to. It is the means that determine the end. - Harry Emerson Fosdick

The road to and around the Ile d’Orleans east of Quebec City leads to a place with the ambience of the French countryside. Small cottages, ancient farms and quaint villages dot the landscape, making each turn and bend in the road an entryway into new sights and experiences.

Like the road pictures a lot, this one and the one above. Roads evoke so many emotions as we take them thinking we know our destination, but not sure of the events and happenings that will be along the way. Both pictures bring this to mind for me.

V., that reminds me of another quote I found about roads - "A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it." - Jean de La Fontaine
