Langlade, Saint-Pierre et Miquelon

Gord and I did a day trip with Chez Janot to Langlade and Miquelon today.

We started on a Zodiak boat ... it's the small black one.

 There were 13 of us and we had to wear life jackets.  Here are Gord and I.

 Leaving Saint-Pierre behind for the 45 minute ride to Langlade.

The land along the way is very rugged.

We saw lots of seals!

 We landed in Langlade and our boat is tied up 'til our return trip.

The day started cloudy but the sun came out and it got hot when we got to Langlade.  We had croissants at Chez Janot.

I walked around a bit ...

Jean Cloony, our driver, took us for a drive around Langlade.

A friend of his has a lovely huge garden.

We headed back across this bridge.

We spent some time by the the Atlantic Ocean.

Residents only live in Langlade during the summer.  Though there are houses, you can stay in a trailer park for free.

We went back to Chez Janot for lunch ... fresh cod, rice, green beans and dessert.

Here are Gord and I after lunch.

It was a cool place to spend some time and explore.
