Road to Dawson City / Gaspe – May 27

This is part of a series that started with the post called “Roads – then and now (May 14)”. Each post in the series will describe each day of what we had hoped to do on our ‘cancelled due to Covid-29’ trip to the Arctic Ocean in 2020 AND what we did do on our Cross-Canada trip in 2019.

Arctic Ocean:

Perhaps today we would have headed toward Dawson City but this is quite a stretch so we would have possibly spent the night near Lenore Lake along Hwy 2.

Cross-Canada 2019:

As we continued our way around Gaspé Pennisula, we stopped for a bit in Percé.

There are many places that we could stay for the night but as it was quite early yet, we continued on our way and looked for a place that would be out of the wind. We stopped at New Carlisle to see the the sculpture by the harbour and went for a nice walk.

This sculpture, “Visage des Chaleurs“, was created by a local artist, Robert Jacob, in 2009. This stone is approximately 450 million years old and was formed by the glaciers during the various cycles of glaciation. The boulder is installed on the most southern point in the Chaleurs Bay where “the lady” bids a warm welcome to all our visitors.

We settled on the harbour in New Richmond to spend the night. We have found that harbours are nice places to stay as there is always something going on and the view is always nice.

… and then there is the sunset…
