Following a slow, somewhat melancholy drive south through the scenic Gaspe Peninsula, I spent four short days along the Chaleur Bay in Belledune, New Brunswick (Pop: 1,548).
It's the largest bay in the Gulf of St Lawrence, and a famous fishing ground for salmon, trout, sea bass and mackerel, among other delicacies. As the name suggests, the climate of the bay is unusually warm compared to adjacent areas of the gulf, though I never got in past my knees!
This was the first location where my tent went up in Canada! It was great to be back in the homestead, among very friendly folks, and a relaxing environment. Honestly, I couldn't get enough of the view of this beautiful bay and the Appalachians in the distance. The photos don't capture it.
