Firstly we made a visit to Trois Pistols. This is a very nice town where a well-known language school is located. Katie (our oldest daughter) attended this school some years ago and had told us about the charm of the village, so we stopped to explore. We found that in the city centre there was a gorgeous and very large church there which was open for visits. It was surprisingly beautiful.
We spent some time exploring the area and drove through town enjoying the architecture and the views. Then we made our second stop, on the shore of the river where the tide was out. We had our picnic lunch at the water's edge and enjoyed the sights.
We finally made it to the Gaspé late in the afternoon, too late to start enjoying the area as we had planned. Instead we meandered our way toward Ste-Anne-Des-Monts. We found a hotel and enjoyed a great seafood supper right on the wharf. A beautiful sunset broke through the cloudy sky and we enjoyed the vista.
Tomorrow we are on our way to Quebec's "Park National de la Gaspésie" which is inland and hope to have a good view from the highest point on the Peninsula....if the weather cooperates!!
