It was overcast and raining a bit when we left but the sun started to shine by the time we got to the village of Les Eboulements around 12:30, It took us nearly 4:30 hours to do 19 km. We did stop a few times to chat with people but still it was a pretty slow grind.
|Baie St-Paul is very picturesque and a well known artist gathering spot. |
Many of the Group of Seven spent their summers here.

|I look a little up tight because I had to push my bike for the last bit of the hill. |
Hélène 'The Machine' pedalled all the way up
|We enjoyed a nice chat with 'Martin' as we were recovering|
from this long climb.
|What goes down the hill has to come up the other side.|
|The Village of Les Eboulements. Our route took us past |
the church and over the hill.

the next bit of downhill

Today was a tough day. We did not make it to La Malbaie because we were exhausted and where fortunate enough to stumble on a campground. The sign said closed but the owner must have felt obliged to help out the two tired cyclists. We are glad he did.
We had to cancel the line dancing we had planned for this evening.
