Sept-Iles, Canada

June 22, 2017

Day 167!

Well, Marie was right, it’s no Fort Lauderdale! The town is located at the mouth of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and it is picturesque but tiny.

We were greeted by young Innu dancers and musicians.  This area has a rich history of trapping, fishing, forestry and mining.


We had a long walk in the cool fresh air.  Others opted to take a zodiac tour of the surrounding islands.  Good thing they got these warm coats!


A few local craft stores, restaurants, etc, but the most interesting was the variety of nets they use for fishing and shrimping.


One of the waterfront restaurants used them in their decor.  Like eating in a very large lobster trap.


Across the water is the largest aluminium plant in North America.


And they have a lot of things made from aluminum.


A very small town with very friendly people. Not much to see and do, but at least it wasn’t winter when they get 20 feet of snow and temps go down to 30 below zero. No cruise would call here then!
