Trekking to Sept-Îles, Part 6….Le Bic

Up until this year, I had never heard of “Le Bic“. Although we have been driving to and from and through Rimouski for many years, visiting Andre’s brother who lived there, I had never taken note of “Le Bic” (which is now amalgamated into Rimouski)…perhaps because my eyes were probably focused on the beautiful scenery all along the river there. So when Andre’s niece Thérèse invited us to visit her there, we were glad for the opportunity to spend time with her, and to explore this lovely little village on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River.

We really enjoyed the long and scenic walk to get to the shoreline. Of course I took lots of pictures. And here they are! I hope you enjoy them too!

(This is the last post in this series on our trek to/from Sept-Îles. My next travel blog series will hopefully be about our upcoming trip to Paris, Berlin and Prague in the fall.)

I love this view of the church, so quintessentially “Quebec”, in Le Bic, Quebec

I love those hills in the background at Le Bic, Quebec…they reminded us of the hills we saw in Yangshuo China

St Lawrence River, at Le Bic, Quebec; you can reach the little island to the left by foot at low tide, but you must take care to return before the tide comes in, because the water gets too deep to cross without a boat.

Strange rock formation…looks like a great place to have a campfire, although there were no ashes or other signs of anyone ever having been in there before. At Le Bic, Quebec

Our last chance to get this close to the river for awhile, as we leave Rimouski and Le Bic and head for home.

About Sharon

I love to write. I love to write myself into being right here right now. Writing releases something in me that needs wings, writing opens doors and windows that I often don't even realize are possible, writing helps me breathe out the dusty old, and to breathe in the new and possible. My hope is that maybe writing here in this blog will bring new light into these dusty old hallways and help me to clear out the thinking processes and mindsets that just don't work for me anymore. I seek to breathe new light and life into the nooks and crannies of a soul that has been feeling somewhat lost and frayed because of the last few patches of road I've had to travel.

      Angelika, it’s always fun to travel together through each other’s “camera eye”. I always enjoy your travels too. Thanks for being a part of this one.
