"In order to escape the cold and dreadful winter we experienced on Saint Croix Island, Sieur de Monts decided to move the settlement to another location. Having… found no port that was acceptable to us... we outfitted two pinnaces to transport the woodwork of the homes on Saint Croix Island to Port Royal... where we judged the climate to be much more agreeable and mild."

In the fall of 1605, Sieur de Monts returned to France. Sieur de Monts continued his involvement with Acadie but never returned.

«Afin d'échapper au froid et au terrible hiver que nous avions connus dans l'île Sainte-Croix, le sieur de Monts décida de déménager et de fonder un nouvel établissement. Comme nous n'avions trouvé aucun port qui nous convenait... nous avons équipé deux pinasses pour transporter le bois qui avait servi à la construction des maisons dans l'île Sainte-Croix à Port-Royal… où nous pensions que le climat était beaucoup plus tempéré et agréable.»

Le sieur de Monts retourne en France à l'automne de 1605. Bien qu'il continue de s'intéresser à l'Acadie,

1. Original settlement of Port-Royal (Wikipedia). Port-Royal was founded after the French nobleman Pierre Du Gua de Monts spent a disastrous winter in Île-Saint-Croix. He was accompanied by Samuel de Champlain, Louis Hébert and Jean de Biencourt de Poutrincourt et de Saint-Just. They decided to move their settlement to the sheltered bay on the south shore of the Bay of Fundy which had been recorded by Champlain earlier in the spring of 1605 during a coastal reconnaissance.

5. Marker detail: The Micmac allowed the French to settle
The Micmac allowed the French to settle in their traditional territory and taught them much about survival in Acadie. This resulted in an enduring friendship and alliance.

Les Micmacs permettent aux Français de s'installer sur leur territoire traditionnel et leur apprennent à survivre en Acadie. C'est ainsi que se forment entre les deux peuples une amitié et une alliance durables.
