After leaving Quebec City we headed for the Gaspe Peninsula. We are not travelling far in a day so we made plans to stay at Camping Annie at Metis Sur-Mer just outside of Rimouski, Quebec. We were only there for a day so we drove in to Rimouski and visited Point-Au-Pere historical site. The lighthouse is 108 feet tall and is the 2nd tallest in Canada. The HMCS Onondaga submarine has been brought up on shore, it is the only sub open to public viewing in Canada. We didn’t go inside as we are both a tich claustrophobic and everyone knows subs are notoriously small. Also part of the property is a pavilion dedicated to the RMS Empress of Ireland which sank in May 1914 in the St Lawrence River in 140 feet of water. 1012 people died of the 1477 who were on board. Next part of the journey is: Around The Gaspe Peninsula!
