Ice on the St. Lawrence – View from the shore of Saint Simeon

Flag of the Day: On the Tadoussac Ferry
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.
Tim takes pictures while Bo and Maya stretch their legs in front of the Hotel Tadoussac. After checking the weather and learning that there were warnings of a flash freeze with the rain turning to ice, we left Tadoussac and headed on highway 172 to Chicoutimi.
