03 July 2011 | Gulf of St Lawrence, Canada
Barely visible in this picture (the black dot), is a whale. We have seen a lot of whales in the Gulf of St Lawrence. They are not so easy to take pictures of.
We spent 10 days in Rimouski, Quebec, doing maintenance (mostly replacing hydraulic pressure hoses, keel bolts and fuel hoses). Rimouski is a small, pleasant city of about 40,000 people. As its port is used by yachts, a fishing fleet and cargo ships, and it has the only marine college in Quebec, it is a good place to work on boats.
AM's time off finished so he got off the boat in Tadoussac, Quebec. Ryan joined the crew in Rimouski.
