From here on we were on the road the entire time, and thankfully, it was a great road. Route 132 stretches along the entire length of the St. Lawrence river and gulf in Québec: from its border with New Brunswick in the east, to New York in the west. Where the road hugs the shores of the Gaspé Peninsula, the waters of the wide open gulf are indistinguishable from an ocean.

The final leg of our trip was through Québec and around the Gaspésie peninsula. This province rarely disappoints me.

Cabot Trail was meant to be the highlight of our trip: it’s one of those beautiful twisty coastal roads that are a pleasure to travel by when you just want to enjoy the ride and not get from point A to point B. Unlike the Pacific Coast Highway in Oregon, Washington and California, Cabot Trail exemplifies that notion as you literally cannot get very far: it’s a 300 km loop. We had two days to see how far it can take us.

The town of Alma on the bay of Fundy is known for several things: proximity to the beautiful Fundy National Park, abundance of lobster shops, dramatic tides in its harbour. But what we were about to experience first was arguably the best seafood chowder money can buy, served in the modest looking Harbour View Restaurant. You’d never expect it from the look of the place, but sometimes looks can be deceiving.
