Saint-Maxime-du-Mont-Louis

After a two-day anchorage at Sainte-Anne, waiting for good weather and working on the boat (it always keeps you busy!), we entered the next leg of our voyage along the beautiful mountainous coasts of the Gaspé Peninsula. After 33 miles of sailing, we reached Saint-Louis Bay, where the village of Saint-Maxime-du-Mont-Louis is located. Above the village is the 455m high Mount St. Louis, named after the French King Louis IV, who ruled at the end of the 17th century, when the first settlers from France established their post here.
