Day 7: Alma to Hebertville 64
Wednesday, August 26
Cloudy with sunny breaks and a shower. 21C
It was dry outside this morning when we got up and it looked like the sun was trying to shine. After we packed our bikes we made our way down to the main street and the river where we ate our breakfast.
The pathway heading out of Alma winds its way around various industries. It didn’t seem like we were heading in the right direction, but eventually Lac Saint-Jean came back into view. We pedalled hard for 30km before reaching Saint-Gedeon, where we stopped for lunch.
After lunch it wasn’t far to Metabetchouan – where we first saw the lake. We have officially circumnavigated Lac Saint-Jean, although we still have a day’s ride tomorrow to get back to the car.
On the way out of Metabetchouan we stopped at the organic veggie farm again where we were encouraged to pick our own tomatoes from the sun-shaped garden.
We also said hello to the pigs.
Now for the final 10km to Herbertville – which was actually 15km – where we will rest our heads for the night. We encountered a few hills on the way. This view is from the top of one..
And if you look closely, this is a view of Mom showing the hill who is boss..
When we finally arrived at the Gas Station/Motel in Hebertville weren’t expecting much. As it was supposed to happen, the rooms are located across the street, a top a hill, overlooking Round Lake. We have the nicest view yet on this trip. After dinner we walked down to the dock and watched him sunset.
