Our vacations on Isle-de-la-Madeleine

To get away from our daily chores for a while, we decided to take a one-week vacation on an island very little known to tourists, way out in the Atlantic ocean somewhere between Anticosti island and Newfoundland. Isle-de-la-Madeleine is a paradise of long, white sandy beaches and dunes, about 220 km in all. Few paved roads exist and to get around we took our bicycles along, for exercise and fun. Lucky us, we had a week of sunshine, swimming, sunbathing, sea-kayaking, good food and a well-deserved rest. [Map]
