Nowadays, Gascons (or "
Anse-aux-Gascons ") has been merged with Port-Daniel. It takes
it name from a ship that sunk near Perc� during the first settlements.
One of the sailors from Gasconny, hanging on to a piece of wreckage,
was tossed about by the sea as far as the bay now known as Anse-aux-Gascons.
It is rumoured that the story has a happy ending: the sailor was
rescued by the inhabitants and even married a local girl. The
fascinating seashore scenery is most conducive to relaxation.
Bleu sur Mer lies in Port-Daniel�Gascons
overlooking the magnificent Port-Daniel Bay. From Port-Daniel�Gascons,

looking down over the beach, which constitutes the "downtown"

splendid bay, birdwatching sites, historic structures, wildlife
sanctuaries, salmon rivers, railway tunnel, natural beaches, historic
train station, among others, Port-Daniel�Gascons will truly entice
