The FOG has lifted .......

Le General of St. Pierre talking to the local future St. Pierre kiddie generation..



We decided to follow the procession with the Town folks...





Le Captain de Gendarmerie...and his Madam...



Memorial of the fallen of St. Pierre who have served in the wars...











Sharon meeting with Le General of the Town of St. Pierre/Miquelon....quite an honor having shaken hands with such a high ranking French individual. Sharon got goosepimples....



Back into Town..





We strolled along the wharf spying for some lunch...and came upon some offshore blue water sailboats. Reminds us of our former days when we went blue water sailing ourselves....









If you happen to be a sailor or know the story of Eric Tabarly who participated in many races around the world but sadly was claimed by an accident board his boat. He's with Neptune now....
This quay was named in his honor.

You can visit the story here: http://www.sailing.org/halloffame/21218.php

...... lunch.....

NOT a good feeling...
