The COVID-19 pandemic and the containment measures imposed to slow its spread have certainly had major impacts on society as a whole and on our lifestyle. Our beautiful region, usually in full swing with the arrival of spring, is calmer this year. Spring has slowly settled in, the lake has awakened and its waters have been adorned with a thousand colours. Our citizens, so accustomed to being the charming hosts of thousands of people from elsewhere, are taking advantage of the milder weather to walk, cycle and enjoy the beautiful nature.
We don’t yet know when or how we will be able to welcome you back to our home, but we are waiting for you, because happiness is in our nature! In the meantime, here are a few initiatives that are accessible to you from your house, to help you discover all of Brome Lake’s beauty.
Many Brome Lake artists have joined forces and creativity to offer you a piece of loveliness in uncertain times. Visit the virtual exhibition Libres comme l’art to offer you a moment of beauty and reflection.
Our terroir is flourishing and many of our producers offer their products online. Take a look at the section dedicated to them on our website and visit their social networks to get a taste of Brome Lake…from a distance!
As you may know, best-selling author Louise Penny lives in Brome Lake and has camped many of her novels here. Why not use this time at home to read (or reread!) the series of detective novels featuring the friendly Inspector Gamache? In fact, the next volume, All the devils are here, will be published on September 1st: hurry up! The books are available online at Brome Lake Books, our local bookstore with online ordering and delivery.
Finally, we have launched the #Wellathome project, a virtual activity directory, good for all tastes, to help you with your time at home. The activities presented are not specific to Brome Lake, but we share it with you all the same, since our goal will always be to add beauty and softness to the lives of our visitors.
Enjoy your visit and…see you soon!
