To make a bit of progress we drove north over highway 8 rather than the coastal road. At Allardville we turned towards the coast. We crossed a resettlement area of the Arcadian people who came back from the Diaspora (1755). The hills were forested with few widely spaced villages. Each village had a catholic church. One bigger than the other. Most people work in forestry or in the nearby zinc mines. Along the coast they mostly live off farming and fishing. Our main attraction is the Acadian Historical Village. This collection of historical buildings (35 in total) was started some 44 years ago. It had just re-opened as normal for tourists after 2 years Corona, a day before our visit. We were very lucky since we had not planned any visit details in advance. The village is so interesting (it normally takes more than 3 hours to see everything) that we spent the night close by and came back again the next day. The oldest house is from 1773 and the newest from 1949. Each house has a caretaker dressed in period clothes of the time which is also reflected in the interior. Some buildings are farm houses while there are also workshops (blacksmith, barrel maker) as well as a traditional bar and general store. In the 20th century section there is also a Hotel (1907) where you can still stay the night. The re-enactors are very knowledgeable and explained what character they were representing and his/hers history. Some of them are doing this for over 20 years. In several places traditional meals were being cooked for lunch. In total we stayed some 7 hrs in this village before driving further to Quebec.
