L’Anse A Beaufils – Aug 26

The crappy weather kept us in port today with rain and overcast skies so we cooked and explored the village. The poor fishery and the closing of the paper mills have created the need to re-found this community through visionary development of an arts business. They founded a local museum which we visited. They also bring in the leading music and comedic arts in Quebec, offer local artist a venue to reach tourists and make their own local brew (beer). They have done this through a group of 40 community (visionaries) leaders/investors. They have made tremendous advances in the 11 years they have been developing this business – good on them!!

Tomorrow, we will leave for Iles De La Madeleine.
