::Emmerson:: Marine Mammal Interpretation Center in Tadoussac

Posted 2016-08-22 16:22:13
The campground we are staying at is located in a fantastic place, the sites are fair sized and they have 3 hook-ups. Well, the power is running high in voltage so most of the time we stay unplugged, especially when sleeping and not here. We have a surge protector built in for the motorhome but Mom doesn’t feel like playing risk. The campground says there is no problem. Whatever. So last night was chilly and [...]

::Emmerson:: More Saguenay Exploring

Posted 2016-08-21 19:43:55
Today we went back to the Marine Environment Discovery Center north of Tadoussac. We took the ferry over. There was no fog today and the view was amazing. We could see up the fjord. Off the side of the boat were a pod of beluga whales. We saw them show their tails but couldn’t get down and near the side to get a photo of them. It was amazing to see them show their tails. At [...]

::Breighton:: Saguenay Exploring

The marine park runs along the fjord and to get to the other side it either takes a 4.5 hour drive or a 20 minute ferry. We opted for the ferry, it is free. The system was quick and smooth. You can see Baymax in the right hand side of the photo. We explored outside the care for a few minutes and then headed back to stay warm. The fog was very thick this morning. We arrived at [...]

::Breighton:: Saguenay Marine Park

Posted 2016-08-19 20:44:18
Today we arrived at the Saguenay Marine park. We set up the campsite and then headed out to explore. The Marine Park is very large and managed not only by Parks Canada but but Quebec Parks as well. We grabbed the brochure of the things in the area and inquired about some programs of interest. When we got out of the car we saw beluga whales in the river. This is the area just about [...]

::Emmerson:: Parks Canada Xplorer Program

Posted 2016-08-18 16:48:16
During our posts we mention the Parks Canada Xplorer program often. It is similar to the Junior Rangers we have at the US National Parks. The books typically ask to complete 3-5 activities. The boys do all the activities possible to get the most out of each site we visit. Below is the link to the program if you are interested. http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/voyage-travel/xplorateurs-xplorers.aspx So far this summer we have managed to visit 32 sties with the program and [...]
