Here are a few photos of our weekend trip up to the Gaspe.
Leaving PEI via the Confederation Bridge on a foggy morning
Marshes just off the bridge in New Brunswick
Euphemia the rabbit was not amused by the trip
Some of the interesting names of places we passed in New Brunswick
Sign for Shediac, New Brunswick - "lobster capital of the world"
Some fall colour along the highway
Coming up to "the big green bridge" (to quote my kids) in the Miramichi
Just outside Campbellton, NB. The foremost mountain is Sugarloaf
Entering Quebec at Pointe-a-la-Croix
Driving along the Gaspe peninsula. Notice the cliffs at the left. This road had to be blasted out of the rock. The roads here were very poor, making the train the preferred mode of transportation, until fairly recently.
A view of some of the Gaspe coastline
The huge Catholic church in Bonaventure
Just outside New Richmond
Another huge Catholic church. When you're driving along the coast, you can see the sun gleaming off the many church spires.
Almost home again!
I think we'll keep going, thank you.
There's our beautiful red island!
This is what is left of the old ferry terminal. The Confederation Bridge replaced the ferry service on this end of the Island.
Thanks for visiting!
