North Coast Lighthouses

Mont St-Pierre (damn that water is cold!)

Parc National de la Gaspesie

Holy cow this place has gotten touristy – and not touristy in an upscale way, Percé has gone the way of Niagara Falls and Hampton beach in it’s tackiness. Not worth the view of the rock..

 Carleton (South Coast)

We don’t have great memories of this place – Carleton is where I drove the car, fully loaded with bike rack and 3 bikes on top, under the low awning of the hotel where we were staying (the rack was a rental and I forgot it was up there). Ended up with a severely wrecked up roof, broken back window, a shattered bike rack and 3 bikes that needed repair. Hotel management wasn’t too happy either. The maintenance guys were great though, helping us tape up the window and using wiring to keep the rack in one piece with the bikes on top. That was the end of the vacation though – we limped back to Montreal the next day and luckily enough everything stayed intact…
