Hole in the Rock and then Chandler, Quebec – Day 37

We left Gaspe, Quebec and headed for the town of Perce with its famous Hole in the Rock. From there we headed to the town with a small marina of Chandler, also in the Province of Quebec. We traveled about 65 miles by boat today and got into some 5-6 foot swells as we rounded the point near Perce.

Hole in the Rock and then Chandler, Quebec – Day 37 — 4 Comments

  1. I love following you guys every day. What an adventure!!!

    Sorry I missed the first part of your trip

    Best Rick

    • Hi Rick. Yes, we really are having a terrific and fascinating trip. Some has been more excitement…like the gas sparks and fire incident…than we wanted but all in all it has been just terrific so far. Cari is being a trooper on the days like today (day 38) when the seas are a bit rough, but I am also trying to keep the speed down on those few rough days that we have had so far and that sure helps to soften the ride. Looking forward to being with you guys on the Vineyard later in the summer!

    • Hi Sylvain, thanks for posting a comment on our blog. We thought that the Hole in the Rock at Perce, Quebec was just beautiful. It was SO big! We did not get off the boat at Perce but the town looked like a fun place to visit. Have a great summer.

      iboats’ Captain,
