156 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: L’Islet Sur Mer to Riviere du Loup, Quebec

The pier at L’Islet was a real gathering place. We met many people, both locals and those from further away, while we were parked here.

The scene changed as the light changed. It was truly a beautiful space.

Notre Dame de Bonsecours was the largest and most striking church in the town. Every small Quebec town has a massive church.

The church had a sign that explicitly stated “No Skateboarding”. These boys were having a good time and not bothering anyone, so no problem.

In spring and in autumn, thousands of migratory white geese come to rest at the beach shores at L’Islet. Perhaps this is why this house had a weather vane with a goose on it.

This is one of the only post offices we saw in Quebec that had a clock.

This dairy farmer was outside playing with his family when we caught him and asked to take his picture. He said that he may end up continuing to produce grain but selling the cows eventually as the quota is too high.

We could have spent hours looking at all his stuff. There were some real finds…
