Notes on the travels of Michele and Ron aboard the fine yacht Kadey Krogen 48' NorthSea. These are the chronicles of our 'wandering about' in search of knowledge and seeking out the beauty and wonders of America and her peoples.

2014-07-20 Jacques-Cartier de Gaspe' to Marina du Vieux, Port de Chandler
Leaving the Gaspe Bay, and headed toward Port de Chandler...(we're now thinking something is not right with our camera...too many 'hazy' pictures).
More scenic waterfalls...
The famous "hole in the rock" Perce Rock...
The Perce Rock was amazing to see!
The hole looks big enough to drive the boat right through, but you cannot...due to rocks below, and depths.
This is Ile Bonaventure - an island that is the breeding grounds for over 50,000 northern gannets (and yes, you could even 'smell' them)! Look closely to see the birds in the indented fissures and ledges in the rock - this is the largest colony of these birds in the Atlantic.
On the other side of Perce Rock - this rock is one of Canada's most famous 'natural' landmarks, and one that is frequently photographed.
Dockside in the marina in Port de Chandler - welcoming staff helped us in this shallow marina. We could see bottom once docked - Texas Ranger stayed 'out' on a dock toward the outside of the marina. Ron and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at the marina restaurant.
Colorful homes dot the town landscape.
