Monday, June 27th – In Port

Today was a day of catching up on some rest, shopping, cleaning, and boat maintenance. There are a number of stores, including a Metro supermarket, within a short walk of the marina.

The weather forecast for tomorrow is iffy. We’d like to press farther along the Gaspé if possible. As beautiful as the scenery is here, we’re looking forward to turning South toward New Brunswick.

Not speaking French leaves us somewhat isolated here in Quebec.
