It's at this point that all the travellers part ways heading off to where ever their vacation plans will lead them...that is, after a harrowing nighttime drive down the Quebec North Shore! there are river crossings at Godbout, Baie Comeau and of course the bridge at Quebec City, But all are hours more of driving on an already tired driver!
I'm not going into much detail on the rest of the vacationing at this time, perhaps later, but I did want to mention one thing...remember the 'October Crisis'? The FLQ kidnapping and murders? Well, while the manhunt was on, we were driving the road, late at night (early, early morning actually) and had stopped to have some sandwiches and a break from driving for Dad. The QPP pulled up and questioned Mom and Dad...it was the first time I had ever seen an M-16 in real life! These guys meant business!! They realized we were simply folk, and asked us to move on and not to stop for any strangers. Heady days indeed!
