On the way across Gaspesie

September 22, 2011

images from the road trip…

first night at the Ile d'Orleans, Quebec city is in the distance

 

The Toit Rouge B&B, it used to be a nun's residence where they would come and rest

 

the owner's residence

 

we went out at night to see the waterfalls across the bridge on the mainland

 

a foreboding lunar landscape led us up a wooden staircase...

...and there the falls fell

the B&B is so close to the water, the tides come to lick it's edges, here is one person who was not aware of tides...

 

the next day we traveled on the north coast, maritime history is part of the place

 

...other places have no historical facts to report

 

so many churches, so little time

 

things to watch for

 

at Petite Vallee a master weaver was at work

 

and so was the wind

 

one of many covered bridges

 

a sculpture and a bird

 

and the Rocher Perce around the next turn

 

and the day ended on this note.

    beautiful, peaceful / tranquile, relaxing, wish I was there. Almost looks like you took a short vacation to recharge your batteries . . . and think . . . and I presume, leave the driving to someone else
