The Gaspé Peninsula in Pictures

The name Gaspé probably derives from a Micmac word meaning “land’s end.” 

The Canadian Encyclopedia
I’ve taken to marking locations on Google Maps to help guide our stops as we go. This gives an idea of where we stopped around the Peninsula.
A sign at the park indicated that gannets fence like this to protect their territory. We could have watched them for hours! We did have a boat ride back to Percé to catch though.

The south side of the Gaspé Peninsula is more developed without as many scenic spots, and I therefore didn’t take any pictures. We hightailed it to Prince Edward Island soon after our visit to Bonaventure Island. More on that soon!
