Day 147 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Saint Tite-des-Caps, Saint Simeon, The Tadoussac Ferry, Tadoussac and Chicoutimi, Quebec

This joyful man in Saint Tite-des-Caps was on his way to volunteer at the local senior’s home. He explained that he has been volunteering there for 12 years twice a week. After that he was going swimming.

View of the St. Lawrence Seaway from Saint Simeon. It was too rainy for many to be out, and the ferry was closed, so that made for less people-watching opportunities.

Three hours from Quebec City, Tadoussac is a town rich in history, nature, and its diversity of activities. With fabulous whale watching, an abundance of marine life, impressive dunes surrounding the bay, and the landscape of the Saguenay Fjord, Tadoussac has a sweet old-style charm. It was pouring rain and +4 the day we were there, which was a change from the deeper cold that we have been experiencing. Unfortunately, it is tough to take pictures when it is raining, as your camera gets wet pretty quickly.

The Old Chapel in Tadoussac is the oldest wooden church in North America.

The Tadoussac Hotel overlooks the water at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord. This hotel was used in the movie The Hotel New Hampshire.
