Gaspé was discovered/found by Jacques Cartier in 1534. Many french left when the British under General Wolfe seized the area and later the British had an initiative to settle the british here. Today there is a strong english and french community.
Linda has very good friends here who loaned us their car to get privions and sight see. They gave us a big lobster dinner with their extended multi-generational family. Great hearing their views of life and country in this part of Canada. A wonderful group of people, indeed.
Went to Percé Rock today and to visit l’Anse-a-Beaufils where we hope to overnight soon. Good thing we went as the docks are not in yet! However, we did have lunch at La Vieille Usine. All 3 of us had smoked salmon pizza …. yum-yum!
After we bought 6 pints across the harbour from Microbrasserie Pit Caribou.
Tomorrow we leave *IF* the winds die down. The last 2 days have been gusting to 35 knots. The winds were supposed to be diminishing noonish tomorrow but now some wind apps are showing 50+ !
