So was Mount Saint Anne.

As usual, many birds were about on the water and in the air, such as these Harlequin Ducks.

I even managed to capture a few Northern Gannets diving for fish.

But eventually the time came when we had to leave. At this point, we only had two more destinations on our itinerary: Quebec City and Montreal, so we wanted to make some headway toward that direction. But before we did that, we made one last stop at Forillon National Park and took a short hike to La Chute (The Waterfall).

And it was just well — after that it got foggy and rainy again. We drove along the St. Lawrence coast until we reached Rimouski.
