Day 3 of our trip began with a 15-minute sleep in. We found out that the duty roster had been rigged by Vladimir Poutine, the leftovers from Dylan’s lunch (from the future), so we only had one cook on the roster for the meal. She was, nevertheless, able to cook great food in her pyjamas. (editor’s note: It sounds like the girls were tired and giddy when writing this. It doesn’t make much sense but it’s funny!)
Next stop: the Tadoussac interpretation center. We posed with Beluga statues and watched a great documentary on whales in the St. Lawrence River. We then zoom-zoomed to the Marine Interpretation Center where we had a visual and audio live hook-up to some divers exploring the bottom of the St. Lawrence. We’re not sure, but some of our girls think they saw a baby beluga during the video session, but all of us saw wolf fish, sunfish and some anemones.
Our storm lashing knowledge proved useful when a massive storm warning was issued near our campsite. Fortunately, it passed right by us, though it didn’t stop the girls from playing some intense games of Werewolf inside the common room cabin at our campsite. We finished our day with shish kebabs, s’mores, and cherry surprises by the fire, ready for the next day’s journey home.
