I visited the French-ruled islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon in August, 2000. The islands exhibit true French culture while resting just off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. I went there to study French for a week and had a great time at the school. This photo of the "Ile aux Marins", or fisherman's island, atests to the long fishing history of the islands.
Another shot on the Ile aux Marins. The stones were laid out as you see to dry the fish that were brought in daily.
A view of St. Pierre from the mountains overlooking the town. Ile aux Marins is in the background.
