Got up this morning and took the ferry to St.Pierre et Miquelon, a French archipelago. The ferry ride was about 1 hour long... and you felt like you were sitting in a roller coaster - not the best feeling...
The island of St.Pierre is cute - lots of coloured houses - orange, blue, yellow, red - you name it they've got it! There isn't much to do here. Stores close from 12:00 to 2:00 and on Saturdays, many stores are closed in the afternoon. What's left? Not much! We walked around for a while, ate an ice cream cone and watched a movie on tv.
The town is set on the flank of a "mountain" so the streets are all on a steep hill. We walked up to a lookout - where you could see the whole town. We then hiked a little higher to get an even better view point.
I wish I'd had known everything was closed - I would've picked a different day to come! Oh well - a relaxing day (except for that uphill walk!).
For lunch I had green salad - this means lettuce and dressing! Sophie had a Ceasar salad and Remi had some kind of crêpe with cheese and ham. For dessert Sophie and I shared a very yummy crêpe with ice cream, caramel and whip cream - which was the best part of lunch!
You can't have dinner until 8pm! I would have a hard time living here as we usually have dinner at 5 or so! We will be eating French pizza for dinner. I wonder what that will be like!
I'm back to tell you about my pizza... What a joke! Here's the story: when you order a pizza they ask you for how many people (no such thing as small medium large). We answer 4 as there are three of us. We give the address - they know we are at a hotel. They deliver the pizza - 1 1/2 hours later (people don't have dinner until 8pm). Do you think this pizza could feed 4 people? No way! It was a small pizza (8" if even!!) - and it tasted like those cheap frozen pizzas you buy at Loblaws!! Plus, it wasn't even cut - they know it's for 4, and at a hotel so we wouldn't have utensils... Moral? Don't buy pizza in St.Pierre and Miquelon!
