Anse aL'Original, North Quebec

A large and scenic anchorage in the Bic National Park which despite its openness offers good protection from all westerly winds. 

During the day the sea breeze funnels through this anchorage and is reinforced by katabatic winds coming down from the surrounding hills so quite a lop can develop by mid afternoon. However, this dies away shortly after sunset to give you a peaceful night. 

A tidal back eddy seems to run through  this anchorage setting onto the shore and once the wind drops at night you may find yourself lying head to tide rather than head to wind. This needs to be borne in mind when assessing swinging circles especially as the bay is shoal for a considerable distance out from the beach.
