Sainte-Therese, Quebec

I took a bus trip to Sainte-Therese...for the first time.  I had my camera with me and took some photos to share with you all.  Sainte-Therese is another small town in Quebec...but not as far as Saint-Jerome.  It is about an hour, perhaps an hour and 15 minutes away from Montreal (by bus).  

This first photo is of the train station sign.  As I mentioned in my last post on Saint-Jerome, "gare" is the French term for "station" or "terminal" used to describe train and bus terminals.

This was a sign for a brasserie...which is really a restaurant where you can have beer or other alcohol with your meal.  The food is usually pretty good in these places.

This next photo is of a mural outside on the terrace of the above brasserie.

This was just a sign outside of a cafe...it means "the green door".

This photo is of a shuttle.  In smaller towns you can find these buses, which are about half the size of the regular buses.  The regular buses have a seating capacity of approximately 40, the shuttles of approximately 20.  There were a few shuttles at the terminus as well as regular size buses.

This last photo is of the bus terminal building.  I took this photo because I love the brick and the clock!  :)

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I hope you all enjoyed the "tour".  :)  I really appreciate and enjoy reading your thoughts.  Please click on the "comments" link at the end of my post to share.


  1. Neat and clean looking!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your day trips with us. This is another charming city. Your photos are excellent and I appreciate the commentary and explanations of French words. I'd love to stop in that brasserie and enjoy some food and good wine. The mural must describe people doing just that. The train station is beautiful, too.

    And again, thanks for your kind and generous comments. They are very much appreciated!

  3. I need to see more of Canada. Your photos make me want to pack up and go. The brassiere looks charming. I like the brick and that clock, too. The photo with the shops and sidewalks, the urns of flowers and the old steeple and church in the background looks like a place I'd like to explore. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Those shop fronts were lovely.

  5. Everything looks so clean and well-ordered in that sweet little town!

  6. Wonderful photos on this place! Nice buildings and station.

  7. You're a nice guide for us, Linda !

  8. Linda, there doesn't be many people about, were you up early? Beautiful photos anyway.

    1. There were some people, but this was a weekday afternoon, so perhaps that is the reason there weren't too many. :)
