Day 3 – Rivière-au-Tonnerre-Minganie

Woke up to a beautiful sunrise no alarm today, sound of the waves crashing against the rocky shore. Hundreds of ducks in the still water.

As we made our way along the whale route we had to stop for some magnificent falls, with significantly more water than Churchill falls.

A lovely drive along the water with lots of small towns. We filled up with gas in Magpie, a nice attendant filled up for us with endless chatter. We stopped in at a convenience store which had everything you can imagine from food to hardware, what a great little place.

For the last couple days we have been looking for 15amp glass fuses which we could not find at any large outlets like cnd tire yet this out of the way place had them!

Our day was short due to the discovery of one off the best iOverlander sites we have yet come across.

A little dirt road with a few cottages along the way and we finally found our perfect spot.

We hurriedly unpacked and setup just so we could have down time on this gorgeous beach!

We had a fantastic day flying kites, beach walks and even a freezing cold swim which was refreshing to say the least!

Captured some drone footage, met some locals and drank sangria on the beach.

We finally managed to figure out our hot water system and yay…. no need to smell anymore or have cold water showers!

We cooked our dinner on the gstove with the cooking space! Great piece of kit!

We also managed to shoot some great footage with the 360 camera of the inside of the tents! So not just play we did a bit of work too, in our office with a view!

We are doing a two night stop here, since it is such a great setting. So lots of down time yay!

What a beautiful evening and sunset, with absolutely great friends!

Day 2 – Godbout-Riviere-Au-Tonnerre

About two hour crossing on the ferry amazing to think a river can be this big!!

Beautiful scenery, stunning beaches and lovely weather. Clocked approx 300kms, easy day!

Stopped in at a lighthouse at Baie-Trinite where they charged five bucks a person to literally walk a few couple metres, no English signs at all, kind of crazy for a government run site!

However it was beautiful we did see humpbacks right from shore, what an awesome sight watching them as we ate lunch!

Found the old abandoned provincial park and explored that a bit. so much fireweed along the way which makes for a very pretty scene.

Quite a battle finding suitable campsite for the night, lots of beach spots but crowded and full of rv,s can’t wait to get to the more remote sections!

Gorgeous endless white beaches along the way. Impressive seeing all the snow mobile and ATVs trails available to people here.

We stumbled upon a stunning bird sanctuary and thought of camping close by but landed ourselves in a bit of a pickle and got stuck in some very thick silky sand! Thankfully the boys kept their cool not spinning the wheels and digging in further they managed an excellent recovery with our heavy trailer! Thanks guys you rock!

630 pm and we were still on the hunt for a spot to camp! Most of the iOverlander site were not good at all, except for one which again was over crowded.

Finally found a place along the ocean on the side of the road, not too bad for a quick stop overnight.the moon was stunning and hundreds of duck on the water which was pretty amazing to see.

Our eco temp for hot water gave up the ghost so cold water showers it is for Peter and I … or maybe we will hijack Sandy and Barbs when they are not looking 😊

…..onwards we go, looking forward to another day exploring! Over and out

Day 1 -Drive to Matane

On the road … first stop is Matane. We are taking the ferry across the ST. Lawrence early Sat morning to Godbout Quebec.

Long stretch yesterday about a 7 hr trip to Matane. 885km done and dusted

A concoction of weather hot and sunny to dark and gloomy and pouring rain, what a start to our trip! Other than a lot of moose signs and trees for days it was an uneventful drive to say the least.

Our campsite for the night was a wooded site near a river which we found on iOverlander. A five min drive to ferry, so perfect for the night even though it was a damp one, it was a great spot for us and we had it all to ourselves! A spot of rum and we were all set for bed 😂

Up at 5 had our coffee fix, packed up and now waiting for ferry. Sun is shining once again let’s hope it stays out today!

Looking forward to some beautiful scenery today and a great camp spot tonight stay tuned for a more eventful segment tomorrow 😂

Onto the ferry we go…..

Expedition 138 FIN- Kegashka

Assemble 4 great friends add 2 F150’s, 1 trailer, 1 ferry crossing, 4 kayaks and a couple roof top tents, two port a potties and a few bog rolls.

Toss in a drone, a go pro, a couple gps’s, a hammock or two just for good measure, add a dash of adventure, a splash of crazy, lastly throw caution to the wind and toss in a hair straightener!

Gently simmer for approx 10 days but be sure to a regularly add a couple of bottles of red wine, a few shots of fireball and much laughter.

Flash a touch of skin, a bewitching glance or an alluring smile, throw your wild side into high gear and dance around the fire pit just for that extra zest!

Avoid contact with electronic devices, dip shits or any pressing deadlines as this will more than likely cause serious anaphylactic shock spoiling this dish! Bear in mind emergency services are not pleasing to the palate!

Finally add sunny skies, white sandy beaches, salty skin and hiking boots. if you would like to spice it up a bit add dash of rain, a few mosquito bites and smoke in your eyes …this will simply enhance the flavour!

Now.. enjoy this fine dish, savour each moment for this will surely be one of our best yet…and so it begins..

Happy travels … catch you on the road
