Fauvel Beach


 Fauvel Beach, 
on the Chaleur Bay,
Gaspé, Eastern Canada.
Fauvel is between Bonaventure 
and New Carlisle....
I grew up here and have a lot of
childhood memories of this beach.

We played on this beach often as kids.
Ken on the left, Joyce, 
Judy, Me behind,  and Carol.
(Annie took the pic.)


The left side looks like a face

Fauvel Lighthouse
We had a lighthouse nearby.
The fun we had walking up
 the beach to the lighthouse.

Our beacon in the night, with it's light
shining in our upstairs window. 
In the 1990's it has been
 moved to Bonaventure to

a more picturesque place
 where tourist can enjoy it.

Day's Brook below runs out
 into the Baie des Chaleur

In 1827, My 4th generation, 
Grandfather built the first Grist Mill 
in the Gaspé, on this Brook.

In the Fall, high winds, huge waves
 dirty the beach with seaweed.
