We left the gorgeous Jardins de Métis and continued to drive east on the Gaspé Peninsula toward Forillon National Park. If you haven’t made this drive you should. It is really, really beautiful and rivals the Pacific Coast Highway in California. It is super hilly with spectacular vistas at every turn. This was the beginning of our admiration for the many hued houses. The colour choices and combinations inspired and excited us. In addition to our photo documentation of giant ice cream cones adorning buildings and attracting customers we noticed that frites in boxes were fairly ubiquitous on the Gaspé. Said frites are really two by fours collected and assembled in a white plywood box and positioned on the top of the casse croutes. We also wondered why we saw so many three wheeled motorcycles. Was there a convention? There were literally hundreds of them over a couple of days all travelling westward on the Gaspé. Paul and Sherry – we think this is the perfect vehicle for you… that way Sherry could pack a little more! Also, Paul and Sherry – the photo of Christian gassing up and holding a PetroCanada gift card is for you – thank you for such a generous gift!!
We made it as far as a little community called Sainte-Madeleine-de-la-
