The cloud dispersed as the ride made distance.

DSC04930-1280x853We observed a spectacular view of the far coast line where sometimes whales can be sighted in the waters between.

And more fields are turning a deeper yellow or gold.

DSC04919-1280x853We also saw our first moose sign in ages and spooked a Deer that bounded off to the safety of bush across a field of yellow. Another David Attenborough moment when Claire spotted a furry thing crawling at a rest stop. Up close, it looked more prickly. Camera has a zoom, yay!

DSC04877-1280x853A lot of artists live in this part of Quebec and contributed to keeping our enjoyment of riding today. The sculpture of a nude women looked so realistic as if a busker smothered in mud – very clever. As was an old washing machine painted bright red. Claire mentioned that once she got her fingers stuck in ones ringers!

Tomorrow we hang a right leaving the St. Lawrence River as the New Brunswick Province beckons.

A new blank canvas indeed.
