No rain, but if I could have seen in the dim light, I'd have worn sunglasses to protect my eyes from the wind. It was vicious. The waves weren't exceptionally large, but suspect the rips and currents would've been lethal. No chance of going out to Ile Bonaventure to look for puffins!
Today we drove along the St. Lawrence River from Levis to Rimouski, then turned southwest toward Campbellton, New Brunswick. This area is called Bas-St-Laurent and some of the views are amazing over the river.

The road 132 from Matane to l'Anse-Pleureuse is following the coast and it is breathtaking, honestly the landscapes are amazing with steep cliffs plunging in an ocean of ice and snow, frozen waterfalls and charming villages, it is a no-brainer and you have to try. This must be true for all seasons.
