On the Road
A day of driving, passing suburbs, industrial areas, long stretches of trees and farms. We drove through lots of farming country where once seigneuries stretched from the river and up - fields like bands of fabric on the landscape.
Today's destination was Rimouski, a city on the St. Lawrence River situated where the river starts to open up so the other side is not longer visible. Bands of light poured down on the river between the clouds. Endless horizon - it seemed to stretch forever.
The rocky shore shows evidence of long ago upheaval. The rock has been turned so the striations face up instead of out.
A walk, dinner and then another walk - a stroll along part of the city's boardwalk which stretches over 4 km. Lights dance on the water.
