It’s a bug’s life

Walking around the Rural Rootz property you can hear the crows and blue jays calling, and the rustling leaves blown by the wind, or the sound of a distant car passing by. When you look closely at the flora there is a quiet, peaceful activity that says, you are not alone here.

Art on the road

The road around the Gaspé peninsula has more than natural wonders. Blink and look ahead and you’ll miss some interesting sights. We saw an oddly decorated house with intricate tile designs. Those who know Robyn will understand her directive to “find a place to park the RV!”

We weren’t disappointed. We parked outside a motel that had an art installation consisting of a flock of sheep. As we walked towards more similar artworks, a local told us they were the works of the Gagnon family and directed us to the family’s gallery.

Gaspe travels

The Gaspe Peninsula is one of the most beautiful drives we’ve done in the RV, and in some parts, the most challenging. There is some stunning scenery throughout. Here’s some images:

It’s all about the people you meet

One of our favourite destinations is the Gaspe Peninsula. We chose Camping Gaspe, a small campground close to the town of Gaspe and the National Park.

Having trouble parking into our campsite, a helpful voice suggested manoeuvring the RV differently. He was correct and invited us to join he and his wife for a drink. It was here that we met Jacque and Sharon from New Brunswick, two very friendly campers. We shared several meals together including freshly cooked lobster that Jacque expertly cooked for us on his camp stove. He and I handpicked the lobsters at a local poissonnerie in Gaspe.

We enjoyed their company so much, we extended our stay at the campground. Hopefully we will meet up again on the road in the not so distant future.
