Jun 16, 2018 - Riviere-du-Loup,Quebec

June 11th At Sherbrooke there is a real transition in the landscape. From small wineries, cideries and cheese farms we start to see logging trucks and logging production everywhere. We also start to notice patterns that repeat in the small Quebec towns. What I thought were Christmas Tree farms, (there seemed to be regular rows of small pines and spruce planted as far as the eye could see and they looked like they could be from the book the Crooked Little Christmas Tree) but after seeing stands of pines and spruce that were very tall we...

May 23, 2017 - Rivière-du-Loup - Thetford Mines

Tour du Québec Jour 8 : Rivière-du-Loup - Thetford Mines Aujourd'hui, j'ai trouvé ma limite. Vraiment! Ça a commencé avec un vent terrible sur le bord du Fleuve dans Kamouraska. Je ne pourrai désormais plus jamais me plaindre du vent mauricien... Ce n'est Vraiment rien comparé à Ça! J'ai regardé un peu ma vitesse par moment... Des fois je descendais à 15km/h et, quand je forçais beaucoup, je montais à 20km/h. À partir de ce moment, mon mental a commencé à écoper. Mon background de mathématicienne commençait à faire des siennes : plus...

Sep 21, 2013 - Quebec City to Riviere-Du-Loup

September 21 ( Last Day of Summer) The word Quebec means “where the river narrows.” Both the upper and lower river have tides and waves because of this narrowing. Today we leave big city travel and go up river to the area of Canada known as the Maritimes. Already we see evidence of low tide. The primary employer in the province is government followed by tourism. Thus, it is no surprise that the towns along the river are not that populated (350-4,000) but the literature is abundant and information centers are frequent. We are on route 132...

Aug 31, 2013 - Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec

As we tried to see more of New Brunswick before heading toward home, we headed west and then north on the Trans-Canada highway which was pretty boring to Fredericktown. At that point we got off on the scenic river route and it got more interesting as we passed some charming small towns. We had a mixture of cloudy and partly cloudy with occasional sunshine, but we also had a few really nice river views. In Hartland, New Brunswick we stopped at a grocery store that had an eatery attached and had lunch across from the world's longest covered...

Eastern Canada, 2013

Jun 28, 2013 - What the *****!

OK, this was weird. The plan for today was to drive to Motorises de la Capitale where we would have the 37” TV and the two slide-out awnings installed. Then it would be on to Rimouski. It started out not so great when we soon discovered that the side of the awning that went into the roller had a plastic insert that was too large. Mario called Auvent du Richard Dupauer and Sue, Annie and I were soon off to the awning shop to have the change made. When we got there Guy showed us that all that needed to be done was to attach the smaller...

Sep 26, 2012 - Wonderful Campground

After leaving Quebec City we traveled north along the St. Lawrence River. Another beautiful day. We found a KOA and it was situated on a lake with wonderful views. Then the next day we left to drop down into Maine, so Charlene could get her blood work completed. This was our first navigation error! What was to be a four hour trip lasted for seven hours! At the border to the US, we crossed a very small bridge, which freaked us out being in our big travel homes. Prester and I had to give up our tomatoes to enter into the US. Kelly and...

Jul 30, 2011 - Day 19: Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec

After breakfast with the Ginett’s, we pulled out at 9:45 am, heading toward New Brunswick. How far we get depends on traffic, etc. Got to the US-Canada border at 10:20 and encountered a snippety (nicest word I can think of for her!) border guard. She wanted to know how long we were going to be in Canada and when we told her we weren’t sure, she informed us that she couldn’t admit us unless we knew how long we planned to stay. So we told her 5 weeks. If we’re not out by September 3, you might want to check and see if they incarcerated us! At...

May 15, 2011 - Heading to the Gaspe

We left Quebec City (technically Levis) and headed along the St Lawrence River to Riviere-du-Loup the starting point to explore the Gaspe Peninsula. We returned to the municipal campground and enjoyed a few days of chilling out before continuing our exploring. The weather was a bit wet but on one day we did manage to get a walk along the shore on the one day of sunshine.

Sep 24, 2010 - Riviere du Loup-Camp Walmart

Woke up to light rain and that would be the weather for the day. Late start as it came up in discussion over breakfast that all Marilyn really wanted was plain lobster with melted butter. Had some grocery shopping to do so we got that done and by this time the Shediac Lobster Shop was open and Marilyn bought 2 cooked lobsters for the road. Asked if they packed in dry ice for shipping as we wanted to bring some home for family but all the had was frozen and our freezer is full of blueberries and scallops. Don't ask! Finally on the road by...

Aug 15, 2010 - Headed For The Gaspe

Travelling day. Kim and Ian were up, fed, packed and on their way home by 9:00 AM. We took longer and pulled out at 10:30 AM. Decided to follow the north shore of the St Lawrence to Quebec City and then cross the river. We had debated about following the North Shore all the way but then we would have had to take a ferry and they are expensive. A beautiful day for driving, 85 and sunny. Stopped for lunch and gas just before Quebec City, crossed the river and headed NE along the south shore. A very pretty drive as you can see the St. Lawrence...

Jul 21, 2010 - Wednesday Riviere-du-Loup, QC

The ride today was uneventful for the most part. The road was 4 lanes with light traffic. Bob made two attempts to buy diesel but decided the gas stations couldn’t handle our combined 52 feet of vehicles. We ended up at a Petro Canada which had separate lanes for trucks. We pulled in and were told in rapid French that you had to have a Petro pass (no lousy Amercain motre coaches). We maneuvered into the one of the gas station lanes and took on 225 liters. Arriving at Riviere-du-Loup, we followed the directions the best we could and ended up...
