After leaving JF & Christine's house in Jonquiere last week, we drive along the north route of the fjord and landed at Tadoussac, famed whale-watching spot. The weather was (mostly) beautiful, and after getting our eyes adjusted to the grey, swirling waters, we were rewarded with several sightings of Minke Whales and fin whales. Alice was somewhat disappointed we didn't the the great blue whale, but our boat guide explained that they are quite shy.

We highly recommend our campsite, le Domaine des Dunes, for its location, privacy, cleanliness and beautiful forest. A real jewel of a private campground.

Uniform add-on coming soon to a Starbuck's near you - the Bodum Hat!

Make like baby belugas!

Many warm layers for the boat ride

The famous Toupie lighthouse, which has withstood some incredible storms. One of these broke every single window on the structure, and left the lightkeeper stranded for 3 days.

Don't blow away Estelle
