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.
Raindrops provide a glistening show to nature’s flora. These are some examples we saw at Rural Rootz Nature Reserve:
The trails through the property of Rural Rootz near Wharton were teeming with assorted mushrooms and fungi.
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.
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:
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.

Our motorhome has served us well, on the road, in campgrounds and assorted parking lots, even on ferries. Here are a few images…
When visiting the east coast we are inundated with restaurants everywhere trying to get us to try their lobster fare. Well why not?
Here’s a sampling…
