Mon 4 July

Still packing up wet tents. Toured Manic 5 and Manic 2 dams courtesy Quebec Hydro. There are 5 dams on this river, all built in the 60's and 70's so it was a huge project. Great tours but all in French so we had to be wowed by what we saw rather than what we heard. In truth it was a hugely impressive couple of tours. Manic 5 emphasized the dam and construction while Manic 2 explained the process of making the electricity. By nightfall we were transiting down the St Laurent seaway on the Route des Baleines to our nights stop at Tadoussac.
