Fauvel Beach

.


 Fauvel Beach, 
on the Chaleur Bay,
Gaspé, Eastern Canada.
Fauvel is between Bonaventure 
and New Carlisle....
I grew up here and have a lot of 
childhood memories of this beach.


We played on this beach often as kids.
Ken on the left, Joyce, Judy, Me behind,  and Carol.

In front of where I live.
The left side looks like a face


Day's Brook below runs out into the Baie des Chaleur
~Day's Brook~
In 1827, My 3rd generation, 
Grandfather built the first Grist Mill 
in the Gaspé, on this Brook.
The grindstones and other supplies to built the mill,
they brought with them 
when they immigrated from England.

Day's Mill
1827-1927
Built by James Day Esq.

Below ~ The beach in Fall. 
High winds, huge waves dirty the beach with seaweed. 
Carmen above.
my 90+yr. old friend.
She walks on the beach each day,
weather permitting.

Logs are installed to prevent land erosion
A lot of memories here.
before those logs were installed.
There used to be a whart/dock
This was my Grandparent's Lawrence and

Margaret Astles' beach.

Sabrina made the one in the middle and
Mathieu (4 yrs. old) the bottom one with the fat toes
