The peninsula is known for its lighthouses along the way around the entire mass of land. We elected to see a few of them at various locations around the peninsula. These pictures will be scattered throughout today, tomorrow, and likely even Tuesday.
We did a tour of Pointe-Au-Pere lighthouse, making our way up 182 steps and 2 ladders into the glass globe that is the light-room. As it turns out... it is hot up there... and the tour was "En Francais" but the guide was told 2 ppl on the tour spoken english so she filled in the important bits for us after.
All and all a great day. we ended up in a municipal campsite in a small town (village) just east of Ste. Anne Des Monts, but it was too small for Travelpod to find. Checking in was good though the lady didn't speak english we could limp our way through it!
