We left our campsite by the St. Lawrence and proceeded around the Gaspe Peninsula in a clockwise direction. Some of the colours were a little faded but the scenery travelling right along the river was fantastic. The rock formations and cliffs were stunning. Coming through Perce we first saw rock from a distance and then did a quick stop to take a photo. We have been there many times and it is still as beautiful as ever.
On Tuesday night we stayed with my niece and her husband who live in a lovely home that is totally off grid and yet has all the conveniences that wind and sun can provide. Wednesday saw us leaving after breakfast and heading in the direction of home. Wed night we stayed at a campground just outside Miramachie. It was open but I think we were the only ones there. The photo of our truck and trailer gives an idea of the campsite.
Here we are on the shore of the mighty St. Lawrence River. The temperature is droping fast and the wind coming off the river has a distinct chill. I suspect frost will be on the pumpkin tomorrow morning.
We had a good drive from Saint-Malachie to Mont Joli. All the traffic was going in the opposite direction. Wondered at one point if everyone was leaving the Gaspe.
The colours are fading considerably here. But we did see many flocks on Snow Geese on the fields and river. We have seen them many times in the Spring on their way north but never before in Fall on the southern journey.
Another exciting RV experience. Here it was the Friday before the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and just as I arrived at Dale’s sisters home, the spring on the passenger side of the trailer broke. Everybody seemed to want to help….on Tuesday. Finally having good connections in the local area, my brother in law was able to find someone who found a replacement spring and another who came on Saturday morning and replaced the part. It is under warranty so hopefully the dealer will go for the extra costs to get it done on a holiday weekend.
Here are some photos taken before or fun began.
