I heard it long before it emerged from the morning fog at Saint-Siméon.  I was on the north shore waiting t catch the boat to the south, Rivière-du-Loup.

Canadians must have a surplus of !!! available for their signage, but seeing this made me walk away from the immediate area.

Some of you can likely already identify this self-unloading bulk carrier, heavy laden most probably with ore.  Her identity is given at the end of this post.

I mentioned previously that the Saint Lawrence is wide,

so wide there’s never been a thought to build bridges downstream from Quebec City.

Trans-St. Laurent is in its 56th season on this run, operating until ice thickness prevents it.

Note the steering pole, aka spear pole to “point to the course.”

This is NOT a great pic or even a good one, but that white speck is one of the several beluga whales that passed during the crossing.

Brandy Pot Light is on the Rivière-du-Loup (Wolf River) side of the crossing, and here’s a glance at

Saguenay Fjord National Park . . . in that hollow almost center of the photo.
