July 16th – Mont St. Pierre

16 Jul

It turned out that the big boat was not Guy LaFleur’s, but somehow, one of the workers at the marina got it into his head that I was very disappointed. I guess Dennis mentioned that we were from Parry Sound, the home of Bobby Orr, so he thought that I would be cheered up by giving me an autographed picture of Guy LaFleur!

So, because there is absolutely no wind and hasn’t been all day, we are anchored at Mont St. Pierre. This village is renowned for hang gliding and we have been watching them jump off the cliffs! Very interesting but too scary for me! Here is a video that I found online:

We met up with some people when we went ashore in the dinghy and they said that we have to go to the Magdalen Islands, so once we get to Gaspe, we will probably head over there for a few days.
Here is a picture of the boat at today’s anchorage:

      Yes, there was no wind at all. Today, is different. South wind so we are hugging the coast. Just passed the most northern point and are heading south.
