As we packed up to leave Kouchibiguac National Park, we found a wild blueberry bush right on our campsite! This, after searching in ditches along the highway. Our drive today was about 3 hours, north to the Acadian Peninsula.

Along the way, we stopped at a really nice microbrewery. George filled up our growlers for the first time on this trip, as it was the first time the price was right for him.

The farther north we traveled today, the less English we saw on signs. Many of the houses have ornate Acadian flag displays, for the Acadian Festival now going on.

When we pulled in to the RV park, we spotted another Airstream. We introduced each other (speaking French/English) and toured each other’s trailer.

We can see the water, the Gulf of St. Lawrence, from our site. Often windy here, it is a popular place for kite-surfing.

DINNER: Tony’s turn tonight. He bought an assortment of local seafood and we had a big appetizer “buffet”. We started with smoked salmon dip. Then, interesting whelks….

A bit chewy. Interesting. Followed by pickled herring and snow crab claws. Wow, what a treat!
