Sunday May 30 2004
I pack up camp and leave early towards Montreal on Hwy. # 40 along the North Shore of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Another cold, windy day with some sun & mostly cloud cover.
No stops in Montreal, Trois-Rivieres or Quebec City except for fuel, it is my plan to make it to Tadoussac today in decent time so I hump it straight through.
I've got places to go, things to do and people to see!
Montreal has a real European type feel to the city and Quebec City is very beautiful with its stone walls around the perimeter of the old city, stone buildings, its old architecture & history, these two cities are well worth exploring as I have previously found out.
After Quebec city the Hwy. changes to #138, all the way to Tadoussac and beyond, it hugs the north shore of the St. Lawrence when the road stops at Natashquan and your only means of travel east is by the weekly ferry that makes 2-3 hourly stops at the villages along the way to the Quebec/Labrador border.
I visited Labrador for one day, read about that later in the Newfoundland section.
There must have been a rally or a ride today because there were so many motorcycles out and about, especially Harleys.
I stop to catch the free ferry ride across the Saguenay River to Tadoussac, a tiny village of under 1000 people, which explodes with thousands of tourists to see the main attraction- whales!
