Got attacked by birds and shocked by jellyfish

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

We slept in and went to the bog trail in the morning. Dad had to poop, and there were no outhouses there, so we did the hike without him and he met us at the trailhead.


After that, we went to Kelly's beach to wander around. Mom and dad stayed behind and I walked until I thought that I shouldn't anymore. The plovers have their nests there and I didn't want to disturb them.

I sat down for a while at the end of the island and watched some seals bobbing about in the water. On the way back, I felt a shock on my foot and something got stuck in it. I kept walking in the water, so that it would get flushed out and after about 30 minutes it did. That's when I got attacked by the terns! I started running down the beach and made my way back to the boardwalk. I couldn't see the bottom of my foot so I asked the kind lifeguards to do it. It was rainy and they were bored so I had the services of four of them.


They looked at the bottom of my foot and couldn't see anything anymore. They also told me that jellyfish stings burn, they don't zap. Then I have no idea what went into my foot. Oh well. They gave me a couple of band aids and I went on my way.


When we got back to the campsite, a few people had left, including our Arab friends. They didn't say goodbye. Mom took their wood and she also grabbed a handy jug that someone had left behind. We were finding treasures all over the place! To our surprise, the Arab buddies came back to look for something small, but they didn't find it. It was at this point that we quickly shoved the wood into the fire, to eliminate all evidence.
