on the ferry to Tadoussac
The first traffic of note that were cars and trucks just unloaded from or waiting to be loaded onto the Tadoussac ferry. Indeed, we did have to wait about twenty minutes for the next ferry, during which time I had a pleasant conversation with a Québécois towing a boat behind his SUV. He had more English than I French, so informed me in English that he was going fishing. "I'm going to catch a trout."
The Deans were also lucky. (I started to say are lucky, but why tempt fate?) We arrived in Tadoussac with plenty of time to have breakfast at the restaurant where we planned to have lunch after whale-watching:
Café bohème tries to live up to its name, with many canvases on its up- and downstairs walls reminiscent of the twenties and thirties:
Upstairs was cozy, with the bay partly visible through its windows:
Although I didn't know it yet, the embarkation point for our whale-watching boat would be to the left of the private boats in the distance, and the Centre d'interprétation des mammifères marins to their right:

And, back for lunch, there were those desserts I spoke of on Saturday:

If you are ever in Tadoussac, let a hostess at the Café bohème "assign you" a table. She'll even let you sit on the front veranda if the weather permits.
