|Kittiwake Colony on Forillon Cliffs
From the tip of the Forillon Peninsula we crossed the Gaspe Bay and worked our way towards Perce Rock and Bonaventure Island. Perce Rock is the Motif Number One of the Gapse, and with good reason.
|Tip or Forillon Peninsula
Bonaventure Island is just off Perce Rock and is another breeding ground for birds, including a colony of 50,000 Northern Gannets which are gorgeous birds, mostly white, with black tipped wings and a yellow tint to their heads. There are so many that the cliff tops look like they are snow covered.
|Gannet Colony on Isle Bonavanture
Our progress has picked up a bunch since leaving Quebec, covering 40-60 miles per day. I think two more hops and we will be to Prince Edward Island.
