July 29, 2013 Day 68  St. Lawrence River
Rimouski Marina
Rimouski, Quebec, Canada

Today was another stay in port day. Fortunately our mail arrived though! Today was a cold, rainy day so we were happy to be here. We did have to untie and go over to the fuel dock this afternoon to refuel the boat (in liters not gallons!)  We also got some laundry and other boat chores done.

Lisa and Joyce got together this morning and shared whale pictures and have determined the large whale that was jumping was a fin whale as suspected.  We put some of Lisa’s whale pictures on our blog. 

Carried Away on the Saguenay Fjord
(Thanks to Lisa on Outbound for the picture taken on July 25)
There are many gray seals on the St. Lawrence River also!
(Thanks to Lisa for sharing the picture.).
Tomorrow we will go with Outbound and Esmeralda to Sainte-Anne-des-Monts which is about 80 miles east of here on the St. Lawrence River.  It will be a very long travel day, and if we have fog and/or rain, that will add to the challenge.  We may go to a marina or to an anchorage – we are not sure yet, but we are departing Rimouski at 6:30 am!
