Visiting Percé Rock ~ Up Close

 My daughter came to visit a few weeks ago 
and we went on a day trip to Percé Rock,
a tourist attraction in the Gaspé,
a 2 hr. drive from home.
We both have received our first
vaccine and it was great to have
her visit and spend some time together
since both our birthdays are in May.

A view of Bonaventure Island in the distance

Frederick-James Villa on the cliff.

It was a cold day in May. 
We dressed in warm clothes.
My sister Annie below enjoying the swing.

My daughter Suzanne and friend Sara 
 wanted to get closer to the rock.
Usually we can walk out to the 
hole in the rock at low tide.
In the photo, the furthest away, 
Suzanne, me, Annie and Sara.

Rock stacks left behind

Annie and I didn't venture far on those rock.
We let Suzanne and Sara continue as we sat
and I took some close-ups with my camera.
(My small rock stack beside).

 as they were approaching the rock. 

Sara and Suzanne start their journey to the Rock.

The next 3 photos below taken by Suzanne, from the rock,
with Bonaventure Island in the distance.

Also Percé from the rock with the Villa on the cliff.

On their way back.
Some people were having a picnic
on the rocks....😔

They didn't make it to the hole,
the tide was coming in and it was
 too dangerous on the mossy rocks.

Sara searching for seaglass

Annie found a treasure.
A fisherman's buoy to add to our collection.
It's lobster fishing season here in Eastern Canada.

I added the buoy to our collection
  of rescued buoys, in the Jungle,
(part of my wild woodland garden). 

Fishermen use buoys to mark
 their territory in the ocean.
Some break away and float to shore.

I hang them under a tree. 

Sara, Annie (forgot to remove her mask,) and Suzanne.
Most of the restaurants were closed and will open 
during tourist season sometime this month, June.

Sara, is the voice of "Covid-19" commercials. 
Along with other commercials like "Ford" etc.
