Pointe-au-Père Maritime Historic Site

Today our plan is to head south and spend A Few Hours in Quebec City.  On the way, we stopped for a visit at Pointe-au-Père Maritime Historic Site.  The lighthouse stands over 100 feet tall, the second tallest in Canada.  This historic site is also home to the Onondaga submarine.  And, as everywhere else in the Gaspe Peninsula, the views are absolutely stunning.

A Few Hours in Quebec City

We arrived in Quebec City a few hours later.  This is one of Canada’s oldest cities – it really feels like being in a European city.  It was fun walking through the narrow cobblestone streets, and admiring the beautiful architechture.  The views of the St. Lawrence Seaway are spectacular!

After Quebec City, we found a little spot in Saint-Pierre-les-Becquets that was perfect for an overnight stay.  It was busy with fishermen in the late afternoon, and busy with people coming to watch the amazing sunset in the evening.  After that, it was nice and quiet for the few of us left for the overnight stay.
