Ferry to Godbout

We took the 8:00 am ferry to Godbout on the north shore of the St. Lawrence. The trucks backed in first, then the cars filled in the spaces between. We had a good breakfast on board and arrived in Godbout around 10 am.

Route 138 west of Godbout 

Route 138 on the north shore reminded me a lot of route 132 up and around the Gaspe Peninsula on south shore of the St. Lawrence, one my favorite rides.

Route 138 Godbout to Baie-Comeau

The road would up and down the bluffs, surrounded with lush green forest, with the St. Lawrence often in the view.

Motel de l’Énergie in Manic-Cinq

We stayed at Manic Cinq for the night – there was a gas station and a restaurant along with the motel.  This is the main stop for truckers on the highway from Labrador City down to Baie-Comeau. Our little room was warm and dry, a welcome relief from the weather outside.
