Blog post written by Melissa from the 1st Valois-Dorval Pathfinders while on a unit trip to Tadoussac.
The weather was warm, the perfect day. The trip had just begun and already we were having so much fun. We had pancakes for breakfast with strawberries and sausages, a tasty treat, definitely good enough to eat. After that we were on our way to a brand new place to explore. We really couldn’t ask for more. We started with a hike that was longer than expected, but we couldn’t complain because the view was amazing! We didn’t see any whales there, but we’d only just started, so we went on to Tadoussac to get boarded. We rushed a little but we still arrived on time for our whale watching tour, the star du jour.
We saw different whales, porpoises too, and we even had a fin whale come up to say “how do you do?” We learned lots of things, and shared some jokes too. I know in my car, we were all going cuckoo! We did the gift shop tour and got some neat stuff, some sweaters and nougat and a snow globe too, after which we made our way to “le bateau” a delicious buffet for supper. Although their lemonade was odd the sugar pie was divine.
We finished up and paid the bill before heading on our way. We took a little detour and got to see some more sights. We got back and saw the beach, chatted and wished each other goodnight. Now I’d say that’s the perfect way to end a perfect day!
