Here are a few shots from the trip.
Perce Rock, seen from the boat we took to Bonaventure Island. I see a hungry, hungry hippo... what do you see?
The Perce coastline. (I need to learn to hold my camera straight!)
I was enthralled by the colony of Gannet bird. It is said that there are over 50,000 couples on the island.
The birds mate for life and are certainly affectionate, never straying far from one another throughout their lifetime.
It's not a visit to Quebec without a poutine. Sinfully delicious:)
|nom nom nom.. it's seriously THAT good!|
And of course, lots of red wine! We were excited to find a bottle of Syrah.. Stephane's favorite.
Here he is humoring me with the wine... by now, tired of me taking pictures so many pictures.
Here I am on the beach. His dad's favorite spot for finding agate rocks, a local treasure. There were locals on the beach digging for them. When asked if they were finding any, they would insist that there were none at all.
We laughed, knowing that is the typical response to keep the tourists away:)
Stephane's parents' home is a beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside.
It was so cozy, I was sad to leave.
I think Beaufort was sad too. He loved going leash-less on the large property.
Time to get back to reality. It's officially the midway point of my summer vacation. The month of Saturdays (July) is over and I begin my month of Sundays. Still off but the beginning of the school year is looming in my mind. Not complaining though!
My porch is waiting for some attention. I'll be back soon with some progress.. hopefully:)
