    St. Lorenz River

    May 11, 2019 in Canada ⋅ 🌬 5 °C

    Am St. Lorenz Strom entlang geht es immer weiter Richtung Nordosten. Hier hat es stellenweise noch recht viel Schnee abseits des Highways. Und hier beginnt die Touristen Saison erst im Juni daher hat noch fast nichts auf. Aber der größe Vorteil ist das wir so gut wie überall die einzigen sind.
    Bisher hat sich uns auch noch kein Elch gezeigt, und der gerichtete Baby Bär hat sich dann als Stachelschwein entpuppt, die gibt es hier recht häufig.

    Over the mighty St Lawrence River

    May 28, 2018 in Canada ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    We said an awkward farewell to our lovely French 🇫🇷 host after she gave us a nice breakfast of her homemade croissants.
    We had a drizzly drive up to Forestville and back filling in time until we could catch the ferry at 2.30 to the South Coast of the River.
    In Les Escoumins there is an Innuit settlement. A part of the town was handed back and they now administer it. Street signs are in French and Innuit language.
    Settled into another lovely BNB... So cheap!

    Trois Pistoles Quebec

    September 1, 2017 in Canada ⋅ 🌧 8 °C

    We drove from Kouchibouguac to Trois Pistoles today. We mostly listened to a You tube Download of an audiobook -- BY THE PRICKING OF MY THUMBS -- by Agatha Christie. It is interesting.

    Things I learned today:

    1. I used to think that I slept while Tarjei drove during car trips because I was a working Ob/Gyn with a huge years-long sleep deficit. Now that I have been retired for 2 years I realize that I sleep in the car because I like to sleep in cars. Tarjei likes to drive and is a terrible anxious passenger so it works out well.

    2. When you want to close the Volvo windows, lift UP on the switch. There was a black cat crossing the street outside our lovely BnB in Trois Pistoles. Tarjei noted the fated feline and took immediate Action to prevent our 2 mutts from escaping. Unfortunately he pushed DOWN on the window switch and both dogs leaped out the back window onto Main Street. The black cat took off, followed by 2 black&white canine streaks. We found both dogs later. The cat may still be up a tree.

    3. Trois Pistoles does not mean 3 hand guns. The "Pistole" was and old French coin -- like shilling apparently. The town was named after someone lost a treasure in this part of the St. Lawrence coast -- valuable, worth about 3 "pistoles". The meaning of the word was a disillusionment. Tarjei refuses to believe it. He wants it to mean "gun".

    Now snuggled into BnB. Goodnight.
