Long Drive to Mauricie National Park

View Gaspe and Cape Breton on baixing's travel map.

I stayed overnight in Toronto to drop of my passport at the visa office in case my invitation letter arrived from China while we were gone. It was optimistic however, and the letter never did arrive anyway. I spent the rest of the day watching Dunkirk on the big IMAX screen in Toronto with Alan and his son Andy. We had an amazing burrito and I left early in the morning to meet my parents at Yorkdale mall near the highway.

We drove all day until we reached Mauricie National Park in Quebec. We were just in time to attend a canoeing event and we snatched the last three tickets left. It would've been nice but it started thundering and the rain started to come down so we came back to the dock right away.


Some kids were trying to smash a small frog with their paddles and I yelled "NOOOOO!" at them but they didn't get it. Is it because you speak French you don't understand no? I don't think so. And why are your parents not telling you not to torment a poor frog? Annoying.

Then we set up our tent in the rain and little did we know that this would foreshadow the rest of our trip.
