A Little Piece of France

By Linda Tancs

A little joie de vivre awaits you just south of the Canadian province of Newfoundland.  There you’ll find Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, France’s smallest and oldest remaining overseas territory.  Once a mecca for cod fishing, the area is now prized for its ancient trails drawing hikers and birdwatchers.  Every spring, whales migrating towards Greenland are spotted off the coast of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon as well.  You can reach the territory by air, ferry (at Fortune, Newfoundland) or set sail on your own.  Bon voyage!
