Day 69: Quebec City to Montmagny 62km

Guylaine and Robert supplied us with a wonderfully French breakfast, which was a great way to start the day. The sun is shining once again and the ride today along the river was very scenic with lots of small towns and rest areas with lookout points. Once again there was a huge number of cyclists on the road. It is great seeing so many cyclists but it does take away the celebrity status so I'm not to sure if I like it or not, haha.
We arrived in the town of Montmagny and felt like calling it a day so we did, oh yes. This I think is the beauty of a trip like this because you can decide when you want to get up, what time you want to go and what time you want to stop, I love it.
We went to an Internet cafe to do some e-mailing and blogging and generally took it easy. The owners of the cafe were very nice and showed us where we should camp for the night. The camping spot was great as it had a picnic table, shelter and toilet, which are all a great bonus. At around 10 we were eating our dinner when lots of cars started arriving. We had ended up camping in the local town hangout for 18 to 25 year olds. Luckily they were very nice and Jean-Sebastian came over and invited us to join them and supplied us with a beer so all was well. Only a couple of them could speak English but they seemed very keen to practice with us so we got along well. We left the party round the camp fire at 11.30 and hit the sack.
