Parc National Du Bic is a 15 minute drive away from Rimouski that runs along the coast of the St Laurence. We decided to stretch our legs and go for our first real hike of the trip. Chris and I love hiking, we try and do it as often as possible and hopefully it will be a common theme throughout this blog. After seeing the massive route of shorter trails to do, we settled on the 15km trail Les Murailles up the Pic Champlain Mountain. Now it sounds fine except that the trail ...

While munching on plums, granola and cookies we saw ...
Day started out sunny and we hit rain at 4 pm near Matane, a very french town on coast Gaspe. Found a lovely B & B for the night. And walked into town to local pub to sample the local beer and pizza. The drive along the Gaspe is beautiful, every small village and town has an enormous Catholic Church and they all ring there bells on the hour, reminds me of Europe. Everyone speaks some English and if not we use our Tarzan french( very primitive with the game of charades in ...
