Sainte-Flavie, QC to Beresford, NB

Yesterday (Wednesday) was another pleasant travel day. Due to timing for a date we need to keep in Nova Scotia, we decided to skip going all the way around the Gaspe Peninsula. Instead, we headed south to New Brunswick. Along the way we saw several beautiful farms and ranches.

There were lots of interesting houses, some under construction or refurbishment.

Some were grand!

There were many, many churches, most with very tall steeples.

We saw more RV traffic on the road than we’ve seen since being in Canada.

There were lovely views of rivers and lakes.

When we reached Beresford, we parked in a large lot facing Chaleur Bay off the Gulf of St. Lawrence. This is a great boondocking site we found in the Escapees Days End directory.

Our view out the windshield isn’t bad, especially for a free site.

After grilling burgers outside we took a walk on this boardwalk over the salt marsh.

I found a very industrious bumblebee doing its job pollinating the wildflowers. If you can’t see it, click on the picture to get a larger version. Then click back to resume reading the blog post.

We drove down the beach to check out our new neighborhood. Someone has built a wonderful depiction of a pirate ship.

Complete with a parrot.

And a pirate.

Along this beachfront, all private property lots, there are many trailers and 5th wheels.

Some have decks added.

There are lots of humble houses and beach cottages.

And a few grand houses.

They all have the same view…priceless!

Finally, the day ended with a pretty nice sunset.

  1. Thanks for posting all the great pics! I've never made it that far east in Canada as I've only been as far as Quebec City. Sure looks like a place I'd love to visit though. Add another one to my bucket list.
