After a day of walking (over 9 miles, 23,000+ steps, 80+ flights of stairs) we decided we needed to do something that did not involve so much activity.
So we drove northeast to the small town of Les Eboulements and stayed at a bed and breakfast. We’ve never stayed at a B&B before, and I felt like I was a visitor in someone’s home. Which I guess we were.
In the morning we left after a home cooked breakfast served on the screened porch. We headed up and over the mountains on roads like this:
We saw many signs warning us of steep downhills. They even gave us the percentage of the grade. The steepest we had was 18%.
And though this is moose and whale country, the only moose we saw were these….
…and the only whale was this one at a park in Saguenay which was the furthest north we got.
We also saw a lot of this….
…and had to follow a few of these through road construction sites:
But we also got to see a lot of this…
…and especially this:
We wished we had time to go further north, it just kept getting prettier. But it was a long day in the car and we were glad to get back to our B&B.
Because in the morning it was time to head south for more adventures.
