I'm on the road every week this fall between Cambridge Mass. and Montreal where I'm the Mordecai Richler Writer in Residence at Concordia University. It's a five hour trip up I-93 and I-89 if I don't get caught in traffic leaving Boston, or on the approaches to the Champlain Bridge across the St Lawrence River. Montreal is undergoing a massive retrofit of its crumbling network of roads and bridges and traffic can be a snarl. There are plenty of beautiful back roads as an option on that route.

Chevy on the Rocks . I took this shot a few years ago . Late in the day , off a range road up close to Diefenbaker Lake . North of Swift Current, Saskatchewan by about an hour. When I was a young kid, John Diefenbaker patted me on the head while he was making his way to the podium to open the Maxville Highland Games. Many years later I became partially bald. Mere coincidence? Cheers , Alex

This delightful little yacht was designed by Joel White, built by Brooklin Boat Yard and launched in 1975. She was designed with minimal cruising accommodations and would make a great picnic boat. The asking price is $45,000. The boat is located in Brooklin, Maine."
