Morrison Springs, Florida
My friend Adam and I recently visited Morrison Springs, a beautiful, crystal-clear spring located about 1.5 hours east of Pensacola. The exact location of the spring is Ponce de Leon, Florida buuuuut there isn't much to see there besides a couple of swimming spots -- it's best to stop here on a road trip through Florida or on a day trip from Pensacola.
Before I expand on our trip to Québec City, I'd like to discuss poutine, the (supposedly) delicious Canadian dish of french fries, cheese curds, and gravy. Poutine can be served from food trucks or fancied up with lobster or foie gras, and it is pretty much everywhere in Canada. I was pretty apathetic towards the prospect of eating poutine -- besides it having a weird name that I kind of hate saying, I didn't have the desire to track down a vegetarian version. So poutine = meh. Eat it if you want and if you don't, well, you might be saving yourself from a clogged artery or two.
My mom is always fretting about what she can and cannot bring through customs on returning legs of international trips (there was a bad experience in the Atlanta airport with a food-sniffing Beagle and a smuggled sandwich from Pret a Manger). As we departed Canada from Montréal's Trudeau International Airport, the customs officer asked us what we were declaring and she quickly answered "just three cans of maple syrup! That's it! Just some cans of maple syrup."
